This rating is for the Kindle edition, not the book itself.

Dune, and the subsequent volumes, are among the best sci-fi books ever written. I grew up reading them and loved the depth and scope of the stories. When I saw this set for the Kindle I was really excited to re-read them without the crinkled pages and awkward weight of my paperbacks.

It is such a shame that the translation onto Kindle is really, really poor. The text is riddled with errors and some sections are even repeated. It bears all the hallmarks of being scanned and a cheap OCR used to transcribe it. OCRs are never 100% reliable, that’s why people are employed as proof readers. What a shame that the publishers seem to have used a proof reader with as much grasp of the English language as Braam Jordaan has of signing.

Very disappointing and certainly not the quality I would expect from Amazon. I would go back to my trusty, battered paperback versions but I passed them onto the local charity shop when I purchased this. Looks like I’m stuck with it for a while.

Frank Herbert was a genius, with a deeper understanding of human nature than most. I re-read the first few Dune books every few years and feel like I learn something new every time. His sons books continuing the saga and all of the prequels are all pretty good but not in the same league, not his fault just Frank was THAT good. He's the science fiction version of Tolkien, his world building is so deep.

A nostalgic re-read of one of my all-time favourite sci-fi novels. Dune, a simply beautifully realised planet, way more impressive when created by the reader's mind than any of the attempts to recreate Herbert's arid world on film.

`Dune' stands out as not just one of the best science fiction novels written, but one of the best novels period.

Frank Herbert's creativity is at its absolute height in this book. The list of the ingenious concepts in `Dune' would run to several pages, but some of the most memorable include: Mentats - human computers trained from early age to make astonishing mental calculations; Guild Navigators - the powerful space pilots who use the drug melange to chart the routes between planets and fold space; Sardaukar - battle-hardened troops of the Empire moulded by the extreme conditions of their prison planet; and The Bene Gesserit - the matriarchal society of `witches' who work behind the scenes to achieve their centuries long goal of creating a super being.

Among the best characters in this book is Baron Vladimir Harkkonen, who takes his place up there with Moriarty, Dracula and Mr Hyde as one of literature's classic villains.

The world Frank Herbert creates here is complex, shifting, political and full of intrigue. Readers who are new to the work may find the beginning of the novel daunting, especially the use of dense internal dialogue which some may find off-putting. However, it will not be long before they are hooked and fully immersed in the fascinating world of `Dune'.

This is one of those books that you will wish would never end and certainly one that once read you will find revisiting in your thoughts.

...and I loved the film. Lots more detail, although still very fast paced. Been waiting a long time to read this and not let down.
