    If you’re not sure whether you’ll like Dune, you may want to purchase a cheaper copy or check one out from the Library. This is an amazing copy for fans of the book. It’s beautiful on the shelf and fun to read.

    If you’re worried about starting the book because it’s part of a larger series, you needn’t be. This book is a stand-alone book that has beginning and ending in this book. If you finish this book and don’t wish to start the second, you will be satisfied with a complete story.

    The story is one of tragic loss, great heroism, devious villains, and a unique and interesting take on the future. Herbert captures our imagination on what mankind is capable of while relating this future to real world problems. This is one of my favorite books and I reread it every couple years.

    First and foremost this is specifically a review of the Leatherbound Classics edition of Dune.  It's pretty much on par with the other books I've received from this collection and a must have for anyone who likes Frank Herbert.  The cover design is gorgeous, and the formatting is elegant.  I can find nothing wrong with it at all.

    Overall, this is a good book. It is slow moving, but enjoyable overall. I have read it four times now, and still find it hard to believe that this is the greatest science friction novel ever written. If you do continue on with the series, it only gets stranger.

    This is my favorite book. I was so excited when I saw such a beautiful copy. If all 19 books had fancy versions like this I would buy each and every one! If you are a fan of the series or just the first book I would recommend this. It is such a treat for a fan. “He who controls the spice controls the universe.”

    Perfection

    The book captures everything the author would approve of. Richly embossed cover bathed in spice colors to the inside which takes the words on a paper that cannot match easton press. This is way over the top to perfection.

    Dune is a great but the second book starts slow and slows down, with a lot of intrigue  and little action. I recommend Dune but not the squeal.

    This is a very nice product. I was a fan of Dune before I bought this, and once I saw it, I knew I had to have it. The cover art is wonderful. The only problem I have is that, while reading it, I noticed on the spine that a strip of the blue coloring had rubbed or chipped away, leaving an orange "crack" that is very noticeable.

    Well, it finally arrived after 6 weeks (based on my previous orders, it usually only take 3 weeks). 
    The cover art/style is a bit too simple, but nice overall for collection. I'm really looking forward to reading this.
