About the Author
Frank Herbert (1920-86) was born in Tacoma, Washington and worked as a reporter and later editor of a number of West Coast newspapers before becoming a full-time writer. His first sf story was published in 1952 but he achieved fame more than ten years later with the publication in Analog of Dune World and The Prophet of Dune that were amalgamated in the novel Dune in 1965.

From cover to cover it is interesting and exciting. There is a reason it is hailed as such a timeless story, and I implore that you find the time to experience it for yourself.
The plot is reasonably simple, interactions transparent, but there is a ton of wisdom in every other sentence. Hubert snuck in pithy statements left and right to complement the story that unfolded.
Brilliant book and worth rereads in the future.
Full disclaimer here: this is a long book. But, the writing definitely keeps you engaged and there is no filler; there is a reason why this book is long. Once you finish the book you'll understand what I'm talking about.
As a side note, I am not sure what happened with David Lynch's adaptation of Dune. BUT, if it's true that Denis Villeneuve is being slated to make the next film adaptation of Dune then I'll be first in line to get tickets.
If you want to be challenged give this book a good long read, by you might need to read it in bits if you want to read other things as well. There is so much in these pages.
