It's a scifi novel written in 1965. Really well known one, a classic, and apperently highly influenced the genre. I've seen the movie before, and they're making a new movie soon, and I'd thought I'd actually finally give it a read. Highly recommend it.

Hey thanks I've actually read the first book and really enjoyed it. The author must have completely lived and dreamed in the world of Dune for years while writing the book. It felt like I was looking through a window into another world while reading. Something about the family, and the house, and the sandy world beyond: it feels surreal. And I still want to know the truth about the spice I'll have to read the sequels sometime.
