Set in the far future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar empire where planetary dynasties are controlled by noble houses that owe an allegiance to the imperial House Corrino, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides (the heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and heir of House Atreides) as he and his family accept control of the desert planet Arrakis, the only source of the spice melange, the most important and valuable substance in the universe. The story explores the complex and multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as the forces of the empire confront each other for control of Arrakis and its spice.


  • Lots of typos. Buy a different copy.

    At this time of this writing, this copy has lots of small typos and spelling mistakes. While not unreadable, they make the book distracting to read. I’d recommend buying another copy.

  • Meh

    By Txck4001
    Excellent book, but this copy is full of grammatical errors and typos. Wouldn’t recommend buying this copy.
  • Not that bad

    By Qbf6620
    There’s a bunch of punctuation errors and a handful of spelling errors, nothing too bad. Mostly just missed spaces or apostrophes. The other reviewer is exaggerating significantly.

    Don't buy this version, so many spelling and punctuation mistakes it gets frustrating to read. I want my money back.
