Review: Dune

Written by Elke - 5.0

This book has got all which makes it a marvellous book. The author managed to describe the main characters in a few well-chosen sentences without tiring descriptions and explanations - brilliant! The story itself is quite straightforward but never boring - on the contrary. Each chapter brings new aspects of Dune to the reader. Although I've seen from your reviews and the rating that the second book is not so good, I'll give it a try. At least, I'm forewarned ;-)
