Few fiction books changed my worldview as Dune did.

Weird, unique, foreign, and long thought to be unadaptable (we’ll see how this version lands. I’m cheering for you, Dennis!), Frank Herbert’s masterpiece twists your mind and your conceptions, forcing you to confront the uncomfortable.

After all, fear is the mind-killer.

    Great summary! Great critique! I don't know how I didn't see this when the challenge was open. Funny enough, I wrote two articles on Dune for the BookClub challenge.

    Love the subtitle for this critique. If the book is anything like the first movie then I agree that its weird and out there.

    Something I definitely need to read. Loved the bonkers original film with Kyle McLachlan and Sting to name a few. Not seen the new version. Shall pop it onto my list lol. Nice critique, Matthew. It's true, its influence can't be disputed.
