Bad Condition Most pages folded and spine is cracked

Worst condition book I've got from the site

Wrong version

Although they were fast and friendly, we tried to order a specific version (the one listed) and they sent an entirely different version. Then, there was no way to return or make a comment of the order. While I do appreciate the well priced books, a bit more attention to detail would go a long way. My daughter wanted a specific version, and now I have to question if it's worth trying again. If I do, I would have lost the savings of ordering here in the first place....


I also bought a good condition one. I received a terrible condition. My local library probably has one better quality. Very disappointed with the lack of transparency. I did not expect to get one in such poor condition.


Ordered “Good” condition.. arrived in horrible condition (cover page almost falling off), creased and ripped all over. first time this has happened so must be fluke.. glad i can still read it i guess

This Book is Nuts

Dune is unlike any other book I have ever read.

Excellent read

I got lost in this book and the next two, every time I opened them. Truly amazing. After number 3 they lost my interest though but man that first 3 was incredible to read.

Dune is a perfect gift idea for any sci-fi obsessed person!

I got this book for my partner who loves anything Sci-Fi and interesting. This was a new series for him and I was so proud to introduce it! Based on his review, it's an incredibly well written sci-fi book and is now his favorite book series! He finished this book so quickly we've already ordered the next 3 in the series! I definitely recommend this book for anyone who likes Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, and anything in that realm.

Another terrific series!

A Great series to get lost in! This book kicks it off in a nearly intoxicating manner. Reading one is to become addicted to them all! I sure couldn't stop reading once I started! It's such a fascinating world that the author creates! It truly is awsome!

Hard to find, but worth the search if you're a die hard Dune fan.

Dune is a classic. And this book answers some of the most fundamental questions that Dune fans have always had. What did the characters look like? In the book there's about 13 illustrations. And about half of them are in color. The illustrations themselves are not terrific by any standards. In fact, I don't even think they're consistent with the Dune series. (In book V Heretics to Dune Chani's hair color is quoted as red. In the Illustrated Dune, it's clearly black.) But I enjoyed them nonetheless. Other than the few pictures there's nothing to distinguish this book from the original. The illustrations are by John Schoenherr, the same guy who did the original cover art. The copyright is 1977.

A stellar finish to one of sci-fi's best book series--Dune

Frank Herbert dedicates this, his last novel, to the memory of his beloved wife Bev who while he was writing the book. Not long after finishing Chapterhouse Dune, we lost Frank Herbert as well. His death ended one of science fiction's best series of novels. His son Brian has created several prequels based on Herbert's notes, but no one really can replace the wonderful writing style that made the Dune series so unique.Chapterhouse Dune is the final, apocalyptic battle between the Bene Gesserit and their bastard offspring, the Honored Matres. In Heretics of Dune, the previous novel, we meet the Honored Matres for the first time. One of them is captured and converted (but how thoroughly) to a Bene Gesserit. Meanwhile, Darwi Odrade, Mother Superior, fights to save what little is left of the Bene Gesserit planets. We get a much closer look at Bene Gesserit training from the inside, life on their secret Chapterhouse Planet and a hint of greater forces at work behind the scenes. The ending is equivocal; either Herbert intended another novel to answer these questions, or he deliberately left it open for us to fill in the blanks.Either way, this is an exciting conclusion to the Dune Series and along with Heretics, one of the best novels in the series. If you are curious which books can be read in what order, you can read God Emperor, Heretics and Chapterhouse as a single trilogy, or just Heretics and Chapterhouse. Of course, if you are impressed by Herbert's Dune series, you will want to read them all in order: Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse Dune. In addition, Brian Herbert has added Dune: House Atreides and Dune: House Harkonnen, which are "prequels."

The one to beat.

I know some people who hate the movie and will not touch this book. I know a few who own and love the movie but have never read the book. I have lent DUNE to friends who could get no further than page 20 because it was too "out there" or too difficult, with its array of characters and glossary of made-up terms. But of all the people who have gotten past page 20- I don't know one who doesn't praise it among their absolute favorites. I am no exception. I love sci-fi but don't read much of it because I prefer fantasy. DUNE feels like a perfect blend of the two. A war of noble houses set in space. Paul Atreides is heir to the duchy- and to say that he is well trained for the job would be an understatement. His father, Duke Leto, is given charge of Arrakis- a hellish desert-world and the sole source of "the spice" which the entire universe needs. A very prestigious assignment, but treachery and peril comes with it. Paul finds himself thrown into the mystery of Dune and its fierce natives, the Fremen. Is he the savior their prophecy speaks of? I was first blown away by DUNE at the age of 16, and have since considered it "the one to beat". In 8 years, very few books have made me question that judgment: Game of Thrones, Foundation, Lord of the Rings, Ender's Game. I had to reread it to be sure I wasn't just naïve at the time. Was it really THAT great? Absolutely.

Published by William Shelton • September 28, 2023

Our bookshelves are the subconscious windows to the soul. Often unintentional, what we read is a direct reflection of where our thoughts lie, which subjects we are exploring, emotional or physical struggles we are trying to address, and the solace we seek in familiar books or authors. Rarely is our collection static, though there are certain books to which we cling for a lifetime.
