Beware, ABRIDGED.
Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2020
The book looks pretty, but after the first 10 pages, I realized it is abridged. I read the original years ago and noticed paragraphs and lead-in backstories were removed. Beware, this collection is ABRIDGED.

I read the Dune books 30 years ago and wanted to re-read in my retirement. The story is great! This review is on the product itself. I thought I was receiving three separate books - a trilogy. It came as one book - 900 pages. Impossible to hold up in your hands to read. I thought of separating the ''books'' myself; but there are no pages between the ''books'' and, therefore, no protection for last/first page of each ''book''.

As I read many of these reviews...are book reviews and not material reviews.

Allow me to be honest. What we buy on Amazon is a product. The item should be addressed.

What I needed to know was that the book is glued. it is "leather" covered ( mine has over hangs, cheap...and the density tells me its more than likely plether) and the book, itself, is a hardback that is glued. That means the pages are aligned in numerical order, then a large strip of adhesive is pressed to the left side. A bound book is "stitched" in page sections. It is superior in quality and ensures, with normal care, a book will last hundreds of years.

IF you wish to review the story itself, include it as an after thought. If more people had posted that this was, for the most part, a hard cover paperback...I would have not taken the time. BAM does not have the anniversary heretics or Children of dune, so I bought this one thinking it was a solid product and it was 20.00 cheaper than the bay, a win win. But no.

I purchased the hardback Great Dune Trilogy and wow this book is a freaking beast. The book itself is almost 2 inches thick with 1000 pages covering the first 3 books in the series. I''m about 90 pages in so far and I can already tell the story is setting itself up for something massive. The scale of this book feels like the worlds of Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, a living world with insane lore to explore and I can only wait to see what happens next. Really enjoying it so far. Highly recommend the massive hardback containing all 3 books, its got a beautiful cover and back, all black with gold text, and not to mention its absolutely huge.

If you''re new to the series or already an old fan, pick up the hardback with the first 3 stories, you definitely won''t regret it.

Beautiful book - a steal at this price
Reviewed in the United States on September 24, 2020
Really, really impressed with the quality of this leather-bound beauty. Based on how it feels in my hands I''d easily have payed $75-99 for it, The only "complaint" would be that it is pretty heavy 😆 but what do you expect in a high-quality leather-bound trilogy?

Frank Herbert''s Dune is a collection of books that have always left me a little intimidated. I''ve never been a great reader and find myself getting easily lost with books that have too much information. I find it hard to process and is the main reason why I never got round to reading these books. But with the new film coming out, doing a bit of reading on the behind the scenes of the 1984 David Lynch film, I thought I would finally give the original Dune trilogy a shot. The original book was published all the way back in 1965. The original publication was a two part story in Analog magazine. It was officially released as a book by Chilton Books and has since become one of, if not the most famous science fiction novel ever written. The version I acquired is published through Gollancz and is a large hardback book featuring Dune (1965), Dune Messiah (1969) and Children of Dune (1976). The book as a whole is 912 pages long, features the three books, all four Appendix, The Terminology of the Imperium and Cartographic Notes For Map. It''s a heft beast of a book. The cover whilst nicely designed with a cool golden sandworm on a black leather backdrop, still looks a little on the cheap side. It''s a nice idea on paper but leaves a little to be desired. The spine of the book is also a slight issue. I found the pages didn''t bend too well and made for the first and last one hundred pages to be a bit awkward to read, especially on my adjustable book stand. Considering the hefty weight of the book, I certainly wasn''t going to hold it whilst reading. This made for a bit of a problem but one that I pushed through. As for the story itself. Well, if I were to right a small overview of the story of these three books, this review would be horrendously long. Lets just say that the book features lots of political and family issues. There''s plenty of back stabbing as well as issues with religion, false idols and the issue of drug induced hallucinations. There''s a lot going on here and considering how dense it is, I think Frank Herbert managed to get the story across perfectly. There were very few occasions where I felt a little lost. With a good use of wording and the way the chapters are spread out, you can get a dose of information and plenty of time to soak it all in before moving on. It gives this book great pacing and makes it surprisingly easy to read. My favourite part of the book is without any doubt, it is the world building. Each faction have their unique traits. Their clothing, their vocabulary, the way they walk and portray themselves amongst others. It''s all very well done. Even the use of secondary and lesser characters have a lot of depth to them. The planet itself, Arrakis as a world feels just as alive and unique as characters like Stilgar, Paul Atreides and the Baron. The way Herbert describes the different environments from Sietch Tabr, Arrakeen, the endless desert etc is so intense that you could so easily imagine yourself being there. In terms of quality, I would say that Dune is by far the best book of the three and shouldn''t be a surprise to anyone. It''s extremely focused and Herbert clearly knew what story he wanted to tell and how to go about doing it. Dune Messiah is a very good but short follow up. It''s considerably more bleak than the first book and really brings a downer to everything that happened previously (no spoilers). It''s a really good read, acting more like an extension of the first book rather than a full novel in itself. Children of Dune is a much stronger affair with the Atreides story going in a completely different direction. It''s a longer, more detailed and more philosophical story compared to its predecessor. There''s a lot going on in this one, it''s a fantastic way to round off the story of Paul, his family and the people of Arrakis. I won''t even deny the fact that I am far from qualified to do Frank Herbert''s Dune justice in this review. I''m a fairly simple person who hasn''t got the right grasp of the English language to properly emphasise just how good this book is. Up until now, Tolkien''s Lord of the Rings and Homer''s Odyssey were my favourite books. That was until now. I think Dune has everything I love about science fiction and scratched that itch caused by blasphemous nonsense like the Disney Star Wars trilogy and Star Trek Discovery. It''s a very clever, very well written and extremely detailed story that I would call a must own. Some might find it a bit over whelming, others will just sink into it and never come out of their spice trance. I am the latter. My mind hasn''t stopped processing the information I got from Dune and I don''t think I ever will. I am glad I got over my fear of this book. After all, fear is the mind killer.

With this latest addition to the so-called Gollancz "Black Library", another classic has been immortalised. If you''re looking for a lovely copy to keep, or for a gift, this one has much to like. The black faux-leather has writing imprinted in gold, and it is a nice looking copy. The print type however seems to be of old stock, and a little worn in terms of type - none of that precise digital typography here! In term of the content, there''s nothing too exciting. There are the three books of the original trilogy, of course (Dune, Dune Messiah and Children of Dune) with the Glossary and the maps as found in the original copies of Dune. There''s enough been said in other reviews about the content, so I''ll say little here other than Dune is great, the others are more demanding (although, admittedly, not as demanding as the so-called "Second Trilogy", published a decade or so later than these novels.) However, it is the basic text - there''s no added introduction or gilt edges (as in the 1987 Easton Press edition of Dune), there''s none of the lovely John Schoenherr artwork (recommended by Frank Herbert himself) that was added to the 1999 edition of the Dune Gollancz hardback. It is about half the price of the Folio Press edition of Dune, though, and here you get the other two books as well. But it gives you what you''re expecting - a lovely edition of the basic books to keep, and a worthy addition to the Black Library.

I read Dune when I was much younger and although I enjoyed the first book the 2nd one Dune Messiah I struggled with. As I am now, a little bit older, and this was on offer I thought I would revisit the saga. Yes I have certainly enjoyed Dune 2nd time round and now I am part way through the Dune Messiah and really enjoying it. The intrigue and politics, which left me behind when younger, I am now really enjoying. I got this on Kindle and so far its good. Cant complain.
