About this deal

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Herbert's evocative, epic tales are set on the desert planet Arrakis, the focus for a complex political and military struggle with galaxy-wide repercussions.

Arrakis is the source of spice, a mind-enhancing drug which makes interstellar travel possible; it is the most valuable substance in the galaxy. When Duke Atreides and his family take up court there, they fall into a trap set by the Duke's bitter rival, Baron Harkonnen. The Duke is poisoned, but his wife and her son Paul escape to the vast and arid deserts of Arrakis, which have given the planet its nickname of Dune.

Paul and his mother join the Fremen, the Arrakis natives, who have learnt to live in this harsh and complex ecosystem. But learning to survive is not enough - Paul's destiny was mapped out long ago and his mother is committed to seeing it fulfilled.

Read the series which inspired the 2021 Denis Villeneuve epic Oscar nominated film, Dune, starring Oscar Isaac, Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya and Josh Brolin.

    I've got the hardback version but it weighs as much as a house brick. Bargain for the additional portability!

    Great writer & fantastic story of how to stand up to tyranny, plan & undermine systematically & slowly till the whole corrupt cowardly gang is toppled. Just needs an iron will & a patient working plan. The film version by Lynch is great too, another masterpiece.

    I only read the first book for the first time recently only the strong recommendation of a friend who loves it. And I have to say, it was really good. Yes, the language and elements of the storytelling are dated, but I was surprised how readable it was and how strong the plot was. I was also surprised at how familiar it felt in terms of certain plot twists and mechanics that I'd seen in more recent series, but which Frank Herbert was obviously the first (or one of the first) to use. Really recommend this to sci fi fans or those who want to read classics but are keen to identify the ones that are still readable and not a chore to get through.
