Dune by Frank Hubert
Before The Matrix, before Star Wars, before Ender's Game and Neuromancer, there was Dune: winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. spice, is the most valuable - and rarest - element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person's life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis.
Now I'll be honest for the first half of this book i had no idea what was going on but i knew that i wanted to find out. Dune is a very deep and complex book i found and is hard to get into at the beginning but once you get past all the sci-fi language it's really an intresting read even if at times you'll be completely confused as to the whole plot.
There is one interesting feature of the book which I've never seen before and wished was still used more often is internal monalog, When a character catches another doing something they shouldn't they will say "oh you what are you doin here" while the next line in a different text type would be "oh i hope he didn't see me do that thing" this gives charecters way more depth because you know what they are thinking in that moment and you can really connect with the charecter. - As for the plot like i said can be confusing at times and in the story there is a 3 year time gap that comes outta nowhere and i was left confused for 2 chapter's till i figured out what happend because a character mentioned 3 years had past. And speaking of characters each one has depth and it sounds weird but you can feel them they are that well written you can get a great sense and feel for who they are there age and reputation and honour for there family and friends, paul the main protagonist evoles so much through this book that it's hard to get a feel for him as once you think you know him he changes to a completely different person, and by the end of the book his more different I've never seen a character change so much in a single book it was mad.
