Stories set in the distant future, where the big family of an interplanetary empire is spending clique power struggle. The main character of the story is Paul Atreides, heir Duke Leto Atreides and Public inheritance of clan Atreides. He and his family have to gain control of Arrakis, the only place in the galaxy contains a “spice” extremely rare.
The first thing that needs to assert Parish sand has built up a world of incredible. Although the author Herbert used a lot of knowledge of environmental, ecological and cultural studies on Earth is us, he created a new ultra planet. Fremen people and their culture, the protective suits, deep floods, water scarcity … Everything is explained very detailed without being repetitive. We also have a future society where no one uses machines to calculate again. Instead, people are trained to use the maximum capacity of the brain to calculate. Since then we have two factions who “upgrade”: Bene Gesserit and Mentat.
Stories also in the way of style or of Herbert. Made of sand written very bohemian style, change the point of view continuously, even in a single chapters. Normally you do this type of disorder will be very easy, but Herbert is still making the story is interesting because every character has traits or separately, have their own personality, and the lyrics profound dialogue.
The plot is basically can be divided into two. Part reader extremely attractive, attractive, want to put the story down to eat is difficult. But the second part, it was just … Star Star. The plot becomes lengthy, context slowed drastically, and even can be called a bit boring. Especially annoying is the ending of it. Because before reading, we’d know it was on Sci Fi the best selling of all time, so also expect quite high, and as of late, when everything is pushed to the climax, we’d neighing what a great surprise will be attractive then … it all. Read extremely shocked. Herbert can build great world, but these are action scenes do little weak.
Overall, Parish sand is really a book breakthrough with a lot of interesting ideas and innovative (although since then have been movies, books, games, … copy a lot so can we read will see old). Although the book still has some disappointing, and the tone is somewhat “old,” but I still read them to understand the causes of this book was featured so. We’d highly recommend reading this book if you want to try to learn about a revolutionary work in the line of Sci Fi.
