So, I haven’t kept up with my blog like I wanted. I kind of stopped using it when I started my new job in August (teaching high school English!), but I wanted to play catch up today and get them all listed.
I actually posted two books for September on my Instagram account (@lindseysfrantz), then realized the first book I posted was one I’d already recommended! So, there are two for September, but only one counts.
September’s recommendation is Frank Herbert’s DUNE. A sci-fi cult class, Dune is a book that, if you’re a fan of science fiction, you really NEED to read. Herbert creates multiple worlds and cultures, and within them are complex and fascinating characters. I haven’t actually read this book in a few years, and I fell in love with the original 1980s movie first, but I still remember cracking it open for the first time and immediately getting sucked in. This book also has a whole series of books that follows it, but I haven’t had the chance to read those yet.
So, sci fi fans! Go! Read! Enjoy!
“Frank Herbert’s epic masterpiece—a triumph of the imagination and the bestselling science fiction novel of all time.
Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family—and would bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream.
A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.”
