Dune - Frank Herbert I hadn't read Dune since the early 90s, and decided it was worth another read. I wondered how a book often said to be one of the best (if not the best) science fiction novel of all time would hold for two decades after my last reading.Pretty well, it seems.In the face of Cyberpunk and singularities and steampunk and everything else that's happened in science fiction since Dune was first published (1965), it's still clear that Herbert has created an astonishing world, ripe for storytelling -- an "epic" story (and universe) in every way. Sure, every once in a while it bogs down a bit in dialog, but overall, this book deserves its status.
