The scope of Dune is dizzying. It chronicles the life of one boy, Paul Atreides, growing up in the harsh desert world Arrakis. But that is only the tip of the iceberg. Frank Herbert weaves in an enormous number of layers into this novel. There is the political power dynamics between House Atreides and House Harkonnen. You have the Spacing Guild who control space flight, and the Bene Gesserit women who are a mystical group of women with special abilities. On Dune itself, you have the indigenous Fremen and their mysterious ways, the Sandworms, and the spice Melange, the ultimate source of currency in the universe. Spice is only found on Dune, thus placing it in the middle of all of these forces.
I think that the planet Dune itself is the main character. Every detail, every aspect, and every force that seeks to tame and control it ultimately serves to reveal more about Dune.
Be careful, you just might get addicted to this series.
