#6 Countdown: Dune

Frank Herbert's Dune
Frank Herbert's Children of Dune
...and of course the movie.

Set far in the future amidst a sprawling feudal galactic empire where planetary fiefdoms are controlled by noble Houses which owe allegiance to the Imperial House Corrino, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides, heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and scion of House Atreides, as he and his family relocate to the planet Arrakis, the universe's only source of the priceless spice melange. In an action-packed story that explores the complex interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, the fate of Paul, his family, his new planet and its native inhabitants, as well as the Padishah Emperor, the powerful Spacing Guild, and the secretive female order of the Bene Gesserit, are all drawn together into a confrontation that will change the course of humanity.


This is another story that I have fond memories of. This epic is so beautiful and elegant. The story is timeless and I have to watch this everytime it is on TV. This is another David Lych treat.

I read Dune once, but never saw the movie(s). I'll definitely add this to my Blockbuster queue!

I really enjoyed Dune, but couldn't get into Children of Dune in the same way...but, that's probably because I kept coming in in middle of it. I'll have to Netflix the latter...
