   Best SF ever written?
It has been the best selling SF book of all time and won the first Nebula award. The 3 books Dune, Dune messiah and Children of Dune tell the story of an honorable family that tries to keep up in a rat race full of betrayal, trust, heroism and sensitivity. You will discover that the story is playing out everywhere in your book. While the story never pretends to need a new environment, Frank Herbert brilliantly brings an exciting but very dangerous universe to life, thousands of years into the future. Herbert was a visionary with a delicate taste for symbolism and a way with metaphors that have been unparalleled so far. Dune will lock you into your chair for days, if not weeks, and reading it again becomes a promise rather than an option. This is a book that will dictate what's next to it, and it will be on your shelf.
   new universe with many warring factions
The world created in the trilogy and the subsequent titles are amazing. The reader follows the young prince into the desert. antiquated and new weapons fuel an ancient power struggle and reflect on a human thirst to control the known world. The sight is not pretty and the plot keeps the reader on the edge of his seat with surprising twists and turns. A masterpiece.
   Dune Trilogy
The second time around, Frank Herbert was just as complete a read as the first.
   Good quality!
After seeing the latest movie, I bought these books and am excited to read them. The books are in good condition and there was only a small scratch on the outer box. The books are a bit small at first but I will get used to it. The print is good, the pages are thin but there is no ink leaking to the other pages if you are looking to read a novel after seeing a movie.
   Great book ruined by product misdesign
The story of Dune was a classic. The production of the paperback is what the review is about. It was best to make the book unreadable due to the dimensions of the book, instead of making a good book readable. The spine of the largest book in the set is over 2 inches wide and will break in the 1st chapter. It is impossible to read this book with one hand. 2nd and 3rd books can be used in this format.
   Should have paid closer attention to the reviews.
Book reviews and not material reviews are what many of these reviews are about. Allow me to be honest. What we buy on Amazon is a product. The item needs to be dealt with. I needed to know that the book was made of glue. The book is a hardback that is covered in leather. The pages are aligned in numerical order and a large strip of glue is pressed to the left side. A bound book has page sections. A book will last hundreds of years with normal care. You should include the story as an after thought if you want to review it. If more people had posted that this was a hard cover paperback, I would not have taken the time to read it. I bought this one because it was cheaper than the bay and because I thought it was a solid product, even though the anniversary heretics and Children of dune are not available at BAM. But not.
   The price makes up for any small issues
It was a good buy at a good price. I knew these would be the mass market versions of the books. They are a bit uncomfortable to hold, since the books are very thick, but I don't think this is a big issue. If I keep the book open with two hands, I can still read it. The box came with a rip at the corner and the books had a few dents on their corners. They weren't used, but they weren't handled the best way. The issues do not affect the quality of the reading. The lowest price I can currently find for the above issues has graced them over in my eyes. If I can save $10 off the retail price, I'll bite my tongue and fix some of the flaws.
I got my boyfriend this set instead of the individual books he had on his wish list. It doesn't give a lot of information about the books on the outside.
   Bought new but received used
I bought the books expecting them to be new, but they're already used, and the box they came in was ripped open, so there's some damage around the edges of the books. I would expect them to be in new, unused condition if I bought them new.
   Book size and shape hurts to hold
The book is amazing, but the set is very strange. The tall and narrow books are hard to hold. My thumb hurts when I bend the pages open. The set and version is making it hard to read.
