I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to the beginning of some science fiction and fantasy novels – i never know what the heck is going on. But the sign of the good ones – I keep reading until I do know what’s going on. And with Dune, it didn’t take too long, despite all the characters and subtle nuances. This is a classic and I now know why and can see why I’ve read it. It resonates with its classic themes and will as long as strife is what it is. There are so many things to say about Dune: from the environmental aspects, to the political and religious ones, to the importance of friendship, family, and love. It’s a great book and I enjoyed it.
Meghan is an environmental scientist by trade but an artist at heart. She loves all things geeky/nerdy and is frequently found with less geeky friends rolling their eyes at her. She often spouts all kinds of pop culture trivia and nonsense stemming from her avid love of movies, music, art, and books. If not curled up with a book (she reads at least one a week) or comic, she can be found painting with something on a screen to distract her. She wishes she was as cool as Veronica Mars or as Kate Daniels. Besides blogging about comics here you can also find her exploring around twitter, instagram, tumblr, pinterest, goodreads, and trying to keep up appearances on her own blog.
