Review

Praise for Children of Dune

“A major event.”—
Los Angeles Times
 
“Ranging from palace intrigue and desert chases to religious speculation and confrontations with the supreme intelligence of the universe, there is something here for all science fiction fans.”—
Publishers Weekly
 
“Herbert adds enough new twists and turns to the ongoing saga that familiarity with the recurring elements brings pleasure.”—Challenging Destiny

Praise for Dune

“I know nothing comparable to it except Lord of the Rings.”—Arthur C. Clarke 

“A portrayal of an alien society more complete and deeply detailed than any other author in the field has managed...a story absorbing equally for its action and philosophical vistas.”—
The Washington Post Book World

“One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”—
Chicago Tribune

“Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.”—Robert A. Heinlein 

“Herbert’s creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction.”—
Louisville Times 

About the Author

Frank Herbert is the bestselling author of the Dune saga. He was born in Tacoma, Washington, and educated at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide variety of jobs—including TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, creative writing teacher, reporter and editor of several West Coast newspapers—before becoming a full-time writer.

In 1952, Herbert began publishing science fiction with “Looking for Something?” in
Startling Stories. But his emergence as a writer of major stature did not occur until 1965, with the publication of Dune. Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune followed, completing the saga that the Chicago Tribune would call “one of the monuments of modern science fiction.” Herbert is also the author of some twenty other books, including The White Plague, The Dosadi Experiment, and Destination: Void. He died in 1986.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't buy the Gollancz edition
Reviewed in the United States on May 7, 2018
Don't buy the Gollancz edition, see attached images. I stuck it out for about 100 pages but now I'm seeking a refund or exchange for a different edition. There are many problems with the version from Gollancz, namely:

- The text is blurry and blotchy, very difficult to read without very bright light. Normal text sometimes looks italicized, and it's hard to tell when certain passages were meant to be italicized or not

- The margins are terrible. The text goes almost all the way into the binding, so you have to really pull the pages apart to be able to read it. There is a lot of extra margin on the outside of the pages... if they just moved the text closer to the outside of the book, it would be fine...

- There are some bad typos. Normally a typo is not a big deal because you can tell what it was supposed to say, but Dune contains so much unique language and fantasy elements that it's impossible to know sometimes... it could be a typo or it could be a new word?
