Friday Book Recommendation – Dune

by jeanineoloughlin


Written by Frank Herbert in 1965 this is an epic science fiction novel about the young man Paul Atredies who faces the threat of galactic politics in a society that is ruled by the most treasured and limited natural resource, the “spice” melange. It’s this reader’s opinion that this is the science fiction rival to the very popular Game of Thrones books for political intrigue, death, religious fanatics and more. There are five sequels written by Herbert to the book of which I have read 2 and they are equally as involved. I will warn you that the second book is not very exciting but it gets you to the third book which is worth the extra lore dump.

Happy Reading!
