Frank Herbert, 1976
Things changed. The first Dune book is so loaded with esoteric terms that I wanted to know more about, that was my motivation when I set out to read all… eight or whatever, of these. This book was where I stopped. What’s it about? A story that a writer can’t end because they still think about it. Dune OG, Paul Atreides is special and the world is at a turning point; Dune 2 (Messiah of Dune), Paul Atreides is Super Special and hiding in plain sight being Super Special and blind kind of; Dune 3 (Children of Dune), not only is Paul Atreides super special, but so are his fucking kids and his son is so super special you can’t even understand his vastness as the book suddenly climaxes.
