Description

• DUNE: PART TWO • THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE NOW IN THEATERS
Directed by Denis Villeneuve, screenplay by Denis Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts, based on the novel Dune by Frank Herbert • Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Dave Bautista, Christopher Walken, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Léa Seydoux, with Stellan Skarsgård, with Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem

Frank Herbert’s classic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and one of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time.


Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of Paul Atreides—who would become known as Muad'Dib—and of a great family's ambition to bring to fruition mankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.

    An incredibly telling story from an author, who was well ahead of his time, and how he pictured the future. A story that has it all. Science-fiction, romance, war, mystery, and more. I will look forward to the next in the series.
  • Outstanding novel

    I want to point out how amazing it was as an author of sci-fi novels, to see how much George Lucas took from Dune. I have been inspired by Star Wars to write stories of my own and now I have read what inspired Lucas. However, after reading the unknown sci-fi grandfather of my novels, I do ask myself this question; (although I already know the answer to it) “Which story of my heritage is greater?” -Thoughts of “James Gilliland” a lesser of the novel houses
  • Loved it

    Great book even greater movie. Watching the movie helped me visualize a lot of this and made the book so much more enjoyable. I would recommend this book to anyone e who enjoys the movies but could understand how it might be difficult at first to imagine this world without seeing the movie first.
  • I enjoyed

    I read this book to answer some questions I had about the movies and it answered all of them in an entertaining way. I strongly urge anyone curious about the world of Dune to pick the book up. A great story, I am eager to see what happens next.
  • DUNE AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER!!
