review Dune AUTHOR Frank Herbert review Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Frank Herbert Frank Herbert Ï 4 Free download A journey toward a destiny greater than he could ever have imagined 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 ficti 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 suspected I might hate it but at least now I have proof

review Dune AUTHOR Frank Herbert

review Dune AUTHOR Frank Herbert review Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ï Frank Herbert Frank Herbert Ï 4 Free download On the desert planet Arrakis Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides heir to a noble family tasked with ruling an inhospitable world where the only thing of value is the “spice” melange a drug capable of extending life and enhancing consciousness Coveted across the known universe melange is a prize worth killing forWhen House Atreides is betrayed the destruction of Paul’s family will set the boy on In my head the purpose of this review is very clear It is to convince YOU to read this book Yes you Waste time no Go grab a copyMachiavellian intrigue mythology religion politics imperialism environmentalism the nature of power All this set in a mind boggling frighteningly original world which Herbert ominously terms as an effort at prediction Dune had me hookedFirst impressionThe very first stirring I felt upon opening the yellowed pages of Dune was that of stumbling upon an English translation of an ancient Arabic manuscript of undeniable power and potence which had an epic story to narrate The tone was umistakably sombre and I realized Herbert was not here to merely entertain me he was here to make me part of the legend of Muad Dib It was intriguing and challenging and heck since I live for challenges I decided to take this one up too gladly The challenge was the complexity and depth of the plot which left me perplexed in the beginning I knew there were dialogues which meant much than their superficial meaning and was unable to grasp at it I felt a yawning chasm between Herbert s vision and my limited understanding of it However of course I plodded on and could feel the gap closing in with every page much to my joy and relief The ForewordTo the people whose labours go beyond ideas into the realm of real materials to the dry land ecologists wherever they may be in whatever time they work this effort at prediction is dedicated in humility and admiration The foreword makes it pretty clear that Frank Herbert isn t kidding around This is a serious effort at predicting how our world is going to look two thousand years from now and by God it s a bloody good and detailed prediction However the real merit in this effort lies in the commentary on our lives in the presentWhy Frank Herbert is a geniusThe setting of the book is arid futuristic the plot is driven by political mind games reminiscent of The Game of Thrones The issues he tackles are as modern as the colour television Herbert s genius manifests itself in his ability to combine the past the present and the future in one sweeping elegant move called DunePlot and SettingDune is set in a futuristic technologically advanced world which after the Butlerian Jihad the bloody war between Man and Machines has eliminated all computers and passed a decree declaring Thou shalt not make a machine in the likeness of a man s mind Since there are no computers the essential working of the galaxy is still medieval and feudal with heavy reliance on men and their dallying around Lots of thriller potential right there Men with superhuman analytical abilities called Mentats have taken the place of Computers On the other hand we have the Bene Gesserit an ancient school of mental and physical training for female students it gives them superhuman intuitive powers who follow a selective breeding program which makes them feared and mistrusted through the Imperium Their desired end product of this breeding program is the Kwisatz Haderach a superman who ll be able to glimpse into the future How he ll be able to do this is rooted in Herbert s idea of determinism given that one can observe everything and analyze everything one can effectively glimpse the future in probabilistic terms uantum physics anyone The Kwisatz Haderach is the proposed solution to the male female dichotomy between the analytical and intuitiveThe plot of Dune is almost wholly set on the desert planet of Arrakis also referred to as Dune an arid wasteland where water is so scarce that men have to wear stillsuits which recycle human moisture for further consumption The source of the galaxy s interest in the planet is Melange a spice which bestows upon one longevity and prescient powers Everything on the planet is permeated with the spice the air the sand the food Everybody on the planet is hopelessly addicted to the spice their only hope for survival being their continued intake of the spice The Spacing Guild the economic and trading monopolistic arm of the Galaxy badly needs the spice for interstellar transport This is because their frigates travel faster than the speed of light and hence travel backward in time The spice is the only way they can look into the future and see their way ahead How cool is that All the powers on the Galaxy are out to mine the spice braving the sandworms their name merely an euphemism for they are gigantic 200 metre long creatures which always come digging through the sand whenever spice mining is undertook Always There s also another little glitch There exist on the planet the kickass native desert tribal Fremen whom the foreign powers look down with suspicion and disdain The Fremen ethos is one of survival and scarcity driven by tribalism and egalitarianism Okay I ll stop right there No spoilers about this Except that they value water to the extent that spitting on a person is the highest honour they can bestow upon himOur protagonists are the Atreides family consisting of the Duke his Bene Gesserit concubine Jessica and their son Paul who have been entrusted the stewardship of Arrakis We discover the alien planet of Arrakis along with them firstly with fear suspicion and wonder and ultimately love and respect Paul Muad Dib however is no ordinary prince There s a teeny weeny chance he might be the Kwisatz Haderach something which troubles him constantly and gives us our conflicted hero The poor chap trips balls over the spice and has visions of black hordes pillaging and murdering around town bearing his flag and sees his dead body multiple timesMy favourite character however has to be the Baron Vladmir Harkonnen the most evil character I ve ever come across in my literary excursions He is ruddy ruthlessness he is virile villainy he is truculent treachery He executes the inept chess players in his employ which says oodles about his badassery and his fondness for cold blooded logic He sees everything in simplistic chess terms What is my best move What is my opponent s best move Is there anything I can do to completely suash his move Is there a tactic which leads to mate in three ThemesIn this setting Herbert does so much it s unbelievable Religion politics the dynamic nature of power the effects of colonialism our blatant destruction of our environment are themes which run parallel to the intensely exciting and labyrinthine plot He shows the paramount importance of myth making and religion for power to sustain over long periods of time Man as a political animal is laid completely bareReal lifeNow these are my thoughts about what Herbert could have meant to be Arrakis It makes perfect sense Herbert draws heavy inspiration for the religious ideology of Muad Dib from Islam He says When religion and politics ride in the same cart and that cart is driven by a living Holy man nothing can stand in the path of such a people which is the philosphy of the politics of Islam Islamism in a nutshell The spice much desired by everyone is the oil Baron Vladmir Harkonnen is symblomatic of the wily Russians The Desert foxes Fremen are representative of the native Saudi desert dwelling Bedouin tribe who have a strongly tribe oriented culture and undoubtedly value water in eual measure And the ultimate loser is the environmentWhy do good books get overI almost forget this is a science fiction novel it s that real It is also scary and prophetic It is a reading experience that will leave you dreaming of the grave emptiness of Arrakis and make you wish you were there to brave it all in the privileged company of the noble Fremen Frank Herbert achieves the pinnacle of what a sci fi author aspires to rise to authentic world building
