This book is always the #1 on any Sci-fi list. It and Ender's Game are the 2 best sci-fi novels written to date. I find that the books that I reread over and over are those that create a universe between front and back cover. Dune is believable and such a great commentary on today's society. I can't believe Frank Herbert was such a visionary to have forseen our wars over oil.

"Olenko yksin sen mielipiteen kanssa, että tämä kirja on yliarvostettu? No okei, yritystä toki löytyy, mutta Dyyni junnaa jatkuvasti, epäselvästi ja lukijaa liiankin hämäävästi paikallaan. Henkilöhahmot eivät herätä kiinnostusta juuri sen enempää, ehkä pieniä sivuhahmoja ja yksityiskohtia lukuunottamatta.
