47 drewcifer0 How is this what we are missing? This is the generally accepted view of dune.
21 backlikeclap Weirdly clickbait post title.
7 atworkmeir Im reading Dune right now and up to Chapterhouse, the last book before his son took over. It gets f-cking weird let me tell you what. This book is about sexual domination like through and through. God-Emporer was fairly odd as well. I'd say the first three are amazing though.
10 BSRussell This has to be the least accurate title in history. What are we missing exactly? It's basically "It's longer than old school sci-fi short stories" and "the timeline of the story is long."
11 Plastic_Pegasus Dune is great (the first 3 books are all I've read though, I've heard it gets weird later on) . I wouldn't call it science fiction. There's no science in it. It's more science fantasy. I think it would make a great GoT style tv series.
11 DUNE_IS_A_SHIT_BOOK So's good because it's really long? Eh, you'll have to do better than that.
1 darksier I don't know the only thing I think we're missing about Dune is that it's a lot better on audiobook. I can never read through Dune, not without getting really bored. But listening to it sounds absolutely great and I'm excited throughout the story. There's just something about the writing style that I think works better as a spoken story.
