  "Dune" by Rainyh (see profile) 04/30/10

This was our groups first book read. All of us sci-fi nerds loved it! This classic sci-fi novel opens the door to non-traditional ideas that tell very human archetype themes and stories. Our discussion touched on various topics including: ecology, space travel, resource protection, civilization requirements, leadership and politics. We talked over 2 solid hours over this novel, and often bring it up in other book meetings.

 
  "Inspired World Building" by alaskabookworm (see profile) 04/20/11

Only half of us managed to read the book. It is long and detailed, but a worthwhile feat of an extraordinary imagination. "Dune" is a science fiction classic; a genre-defining epic. Given the time it was written in the late 1960's, today "Dune" is a commentary on the complexities of war and politics in a multicultural and intricately interconnected world. Nevertheless, though it's worth reading, it's not easy.

Once you have read and understood Dune, the numerous sequels can extend the experience - a real payoff for the work of understanding another world.
