Dune is a sci-fi classic of a feudal dispute over a desert planet known as the only source of a valuable psychedelic drug. It took me a while to read because I went on a vacation in the middle and didn’t take it with me, but it was so worth the wait. The depth of the world and peoples in Dune are amazing and I loved the attention to detail in the cultural and ecological aspects of the book. The style of political drama with most of the violence off-screen even though there’s a war going on is great. I’ll definitely be reading the next few books in the series.
