Kellhus vs Dune posted 11 September 2011 in The Great Ordeal [supposed]Kellhus vs Dune by Truth Shines, Candidate

Point taken. Still, I'm puzzled why Dune is so highly regarded (unlike, say, Lord of the Rings). On a recent edition, a blurb on the cover says "Science Fiction's Supreme Masterpiece." A movie (not so well received) has been made based on it. It's said to have sold for more than 10 million copies. Based on what I have read (I've finished the first two, starting on the third), I just don't understand. It's just not very good writing. Nevertheless it does have good ideas, and it's good that someone like Bakker can come along and resurrect them and put them to good use. view post
