Reviewed in the United States on August 24, 2017
"Dune" is one of the seminal works of modern science fiction. Not just because it is the first a series of books, but because it was at once a fine story with an interesting hero, but also for many people it was a basic introduction to the concepts of World Ecology and the interrelationships of all life forms everywhere, and also it was the first SF book to take a serious look at the workings of realpolitik. I read it when it was first published nearly 50 years ago, and I read it last week, and it holds up. Super story taking place in a totally-original world with a fine, believable cast of characters. If I were writing a cover blurb I would call it "A young hero and his planet, both seeking their destiny" or some such. But I won't. Only this: if you haven't read "Dune", you probably don't like fried chicken, either.
