Information to help you meet Dune, the cult science fiction series that is preparing to adapt to cinema again under the direction of Dennis Villeneuve.
What is this?
Dune is a science fiction novel series consisting of 6 books, which allowed Frank Herbert to receive the Hugo and Nebula awards and sold more than fifteen million copies worldwide. In the words of Arthur C. Clarke, “The only masterpiece fiction novel comparable to The Lord of the Rings.”
What is the subject?
Dune is the common name in the desert of the planet Arrakis, the only source in the universe of the melange, which is at the center of all political, economic, religious power elements.
Official settlements are villages and towns gathered around the colder north pole. In southern latitudes, where life is considered impossible, there are fremen who do not enter the imperial records in their secret sietches.
Satisfied with the high bribes they received from fremen and smugglers, the space guild demands a lot of money for observation satellites, supporting the uncontrolled climate caused by the climate in the south of the planet. The lord of the desert, sand worms, also supports this. The link between sandworms and melange has not been resolved due to the difficulty of scientific research in the desert.
Land transport in the open desert on the planet’s surface is impossible for those who are not fremen. Sand worms feel any vibration and attack to protect their area. Also, the electric field made by the body shields because of their extremely sensitive perceptions will drive the worms crazy. Only a fool uses a shield in the desert. In order to stay in such a situation, the precautionary measure is to carry a fremkit. The distillery inside this minimizes daily water loss. In addition, by using the booms included in this kit, it can be hoped that worms will be distracted and walked from rock to rock.
Since there is no open water source on the planet, it is very expensive to meet the water need. It is largely covered by water importers in the city. A small part of it is obtained from very little water vapor in the air by wind condensers. brakes use this path entirely.
The planet is a hell of a natural suffering, hell in all its aspects. He takes what he gives with one hand and the other.
Thanks Frank Herbert.
What the book can bring to a reader?
Dune is a series of books that change my perspective on life. There is no book in psychology and philosophy that I read. They have such determinations about the human that when you read you are stuck; the ox is officially sitting.
Thanks to this series, I started to get along and talk to people better. I used to always be nervous when I met someone. If there was no other friend introducing him, I would not have met anyone. Not only the dating section, the event has greatly improved me in relation to relationships in general. Now I can speak very smoothly and comfortably. In the past, it was not so, once you said two words, the rest would not come. Naturally, he would get bored in front of me.
Then, thanks to this book, I overcame my fears. In places where I was stuck, I thought of prayer against fear. Normally, I do not have a job with prayer. I am the one without religion. I have already brought this prayer to my mind as a source of motivation, not as a prayer. The result was incredible. It was so effective when I was nervous, excited, frightened that even I was surprised.
I have always carefully read the information, speeches, dialogues, and the inner voices of the characters in the book and added something to them. Especially the Bene Gesserit doctrine was incredibly effective. Their character analysis and deductions were of a quality to psychologists. And I always learned myself from them. I can now meet someone comfortably, talk for hours, and even understand their thoughts, albeit less than their states and actions.
Look, I have not even mentioned the literary pleasure he gave while reading. I did not get the pleasure I had while reading the first book from anything else. Its fiction is already amazing. A little bit of science fiction and a little bit of fantastic fiction. What more can a person ask for from a book?
And within the framework of the books I read, I claim that this series is the best literary work written.
