My reading preferences tend to be somewhat cyclical. My last few book choices have quenched my non-fiction thirst and left me aching for something lighter, I have now journeyed to the opposite end of my reading spectrum and am enjoying some science fiction, specifically, Frank Herbert’s Dune.
I was always intimidated by Dune. Perhaps it was its weight or that the title does little to entice. However on Vivienne and Jesse’s insisting, I tried it again.
I am so pleased with the book so far. The families were a little hard to keep track of at first, but having trained with the near infinite Aurelianos of 100 Years of Solitude, I’ve been able to follow the characters fairly well.
I just reached the end of Part I. The book captivates and uses beautifully descriptive language. Despite the fact that I’m only 40% through the book, I’m confident it will be a favorite. If you haven’t read it yet, I strongly encourage you to join me.
