This book is a masterpiece in the Sci-Fi fantasy genre and since its publication, it has always found a place on the best books list and loved this book as well not only for the story but also the gorgeous 40th Anniversary version I got. The dust jacket is a work of beauty and the book is also wonderful. The story is set on a desert planet where our hero and his family are sent. And then it covers the story from there and recently an adaptation was released last year and was received very well but that only told half of the story and the sequel is already in the works. 

I enjoyed the story but the truth is that you need to read at least the first four books in the series to get the complete saga of the Dune Messiah and then there are further books as well. There is a total of 8 books in the series and then there are other books set in the world or about the books. I would try to read at least the first 4 books and maybe the further books as well. These are the books in the series:

Dune (1965)

Dune Messiah (1969)

Children of Dune (1976)

God of Emperor of Dune (1981)

Heretics of Dune (1984)

Chapterhouse Dune (1985)

Hunters of Dune (2006) by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson

Sandworms of Dune (2007) by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson

I bought the book because I loved the edition and always wanted to read that but beyond the cover and the illustrations at the start and the end the book doesn't have any other illustrations in the book but at least the page quality is very good. This is an example of a special edition where publishers actually paid attention to make sure that the book is actually a collector's item and it's a beauty to be featured in the bookcases of each book reader who loves the fantasy and Sci-Fi genre.
