They're making that again?

Word has it that director Pierre Morel (Taken) is now working on yet another adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1965 science-fiction classic, Dune. With two adaptations already under its belt (the 1984 David Lynch film and the 2000 cable TV mini-series) maybe it's time for me to finally read the original book and see what all the shouting's about.

As of today, Dune sells for $7.99 on Kindle and is ranked at a respectable #562 in the Kindle Store (not bad for a 45 year-old science fiction novel). Have any of you read Dune? I enjoyed the past adaptations (more or less), but suspect that the book has a lot more going for it.

  1. Frank Herbert's Dune series is one of the top five science fiction novels of all time. I would highly recommend it to anyone. You can't beat that price, either.

  2. Thanks, David. I may just take the plunge.
