About Dune Book
Dune is Frank Herbert’s classic science fiction novel, a work of astonishing scope and originality that stands as one of the towering achievements of the genre.

The stakes are high: those who control this drug control the universe. But it would help if you knew more about the story’s many layers and connections—and about how and why Arrakis was conquered first by humans, then by worms, then by a man.
