Dune Author Frank Herbert Read & download Ï PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Frank Herbert Ò 2 Read Review Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Frank Herbert Ined And as he evolves into the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib he will bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism environmentalism and politics Dune won the first Nebula Award shared the Hugo Award and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fictio. If this is the gold standard against which all science fiction must measure and be judged let s just blow our brains out right now and call it a day As far as I can tell Dune largely inspires two points of view One marvels at its historical importance and world building uniue fascinating complex rich and the other dislikes the stilted writing but does so apologetically because Frank Herbert couldn t help the fact that he wrote science fiction in the 1960s and that Edward Said hadn t done his thing yet Come on people of the world Linear models of progress don t apply to good writing Frank Herbert can t write because he s a shitty writer not because it was the 1960s The dialogue is clunky and characters have endless internal monologues in italics that serve no purpose but to explain incredibly obvious plot points to the reader This is an embarrassingly novice mistake The plot also lacks any element of surprise Princess Irulan oblivious to the concept of spoiler alerts summarizes all major plot points in her historical vignettes which introduce every single chapter We can t wonder about whether and how Jesus Christ Paul will become the messiah of the people because the princess has already told us before we ve begun the book We can t wonder about who the traitor in the Atreides house is because Princess Irulan s vignette is all like Yueh Yueh A million deaths were not enough for Yueh And then there s the world building It is So Fucking Lazy Half the words are lifted from Arabic and Arab Fremen culture is the result of a scavenger rampage through Islamic concepts scraps of Buddhism and Frank Hebert s Orientalist curiosities all cobbled together into a cringe inducing whole The main subject of this book the sand niggers Fremen have been in the desert for thousands of years border on religious fanaticism and haven t changed a bit over time They pray salat conserve water because hello desert and wait for their white savior Paul to bring them out into the light or into the shade as it were They freuently declare Muslim sounding things in bastardized Arabic and are very upset because the Imperial forces are preventing them from doing Haj It s unclear how the Imperial forces have blocked all outbound flights to Saudi Arabia but we ll take it on faith There was a jihad situation like hundreds of years ago but it was apparently a jihad against computers I don t know The ragheads Fremen also do this thing where two men will fight to the death and the winner will take the dead man s woman as his wife or his servant Given the history of the US I think it s hilarious that a book full of racism imperialism and misogyny was considered groundbreaking in the 1960s The other thing that makes this book unreadable is Frank Herbert s I Tarzan You Jane approach to gender There is in each of us an ancient force that takes and an ancient force that gives A man finds little difficulty facing that place within himself where the taking force dwells but it s almost impossible for him to see into the giving force without changing into something other than man For a woman the situation is reversed The greatest peril to the Giver is the force that takes The greatest peril to the Taker is the force that gives Man has the mighty penis Mighty penis does the thrusting action Woman has the sacred hole Sacred hole is warm and open for mighty penis penetration Thanks for clearing that up Frank Male and female characters in this book align nicely with Frank s pole in hole view of the world The men do the war because the penis The women do the manipulation and mind control because the vagina They are either wives or concubines and having children is of utmost important Man and his woman sometimes have tender conversations about all of this Observe Paul began tightening his still suit You told me once the words of Kitab al Ibar he said You told me Woman is thy field go then to thy field and till it I am the mother of thy firstborn she agreed How romantic Anyway let s talk some about Paul our white messiah When he s taking a break from tilling his fields he s busy being a cartoon hero He has no flaws Like none He sees everything understands everything knows the future and every word out of his mouth is prophetic and vaguely Shakespearean This is the kind of shit he says Re aforementioned penisvagina theory And you my son Jessica asked are you one who gives or one who takes I m at the fulcrum he said I cannot give without taking and I cannot take without givingYou re SIXTEEN bitch Sit down and shut the fuck up Nobody cares Opposite the cartoon hero is the cartoon villain He s really really evil He wakes up evil goes to bed evil and all the time in the middle he has evil conversations and evil thoughts Many of his evil thoughts are in italics so we know EXACTLY where the story is headed because plot twists are also evil and will not be tolerated Please note he is also fat as fuck and eats a lot Also he s a big homo And the homo s a pedo I really have nothing to say I AM glad I took the time to wade through this shitstorm of misogyny and orientalism You can t read sci fi and not have read Dune I always

Dune Author Frank Herbert Read & download Ï PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Frank Herbert Ò 2 Read Review Ì PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ò Frank Herbert SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE directed by Denis Villeneuve starring Timothée Chalamet Josh Brolin Jason Momoa Oscar Isaac Javier Bardem Dave Bautista Stellan Skarsgård Rebecca Ferguson Zendaya and Charlotte Rampling Set on the desert planet Arrakis Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospi. No one should argue the importance Dune It laid the foundations for a great deal of the themes and constructs in modern science fiction Frank Herbert was as important to the genre as Isaac Asimov and Arthur Clarke Unfortunately just like them he s uite dated and his books can be a labor to read One thing he maintained from old science fiction was prim and scientific dialogue that no one would ever actually speak I ve known many scientists and they don t talk like this You re not going to convince me a child doesThe stuffy dialogue is inserted into even stuffier narrative until it feels like nothing is organic about Herbert s prose This is a terrible tragedy when you ve got a world that he put so much effort into building and it is an amazing feat of world building technically interplanetary building But unlike JRR Tolkien who he is so freuently compared to Herbert didn t make sure to include a great story in his world Instead he included a story that freuently illustrated how clunky an artificial world can be even if it s lovingly crafted I struggled to attach or find interest in anyone yet they re archetypes than human beings whose logic races past modern skepticism and whose dialogue is cloyingly artificial the way people cared for the Hobbits Dwarves and Rangers In his world building Tolkien at least saved himself from being dated by antedating himself and even with his illuminated prose wrought characteristics in just one protagonist than all of Dune s cast Even the political intrigue Herbert tries to fall back on was overdone in the Spy genre decades before he started this book All fans of the Genre genres should appreciate Herbert s massive contributions but they shouldn t pretend to enjoy the books if they don t and they should be wary of certain pitfalls typical of science fiction that survived into his landmark work
