Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

Desires a listen every year. Refresh so many ideals. Mental training, the merits of self sacrifice and brotherhood, strategies, dangerous of complacency... More I'm sure. Wonderful voices bring the story alive. I'd love to find a story I like more... Don't think I will.

Marie-Laure lives with her father in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where he works as the master of its thousands of locks. When she is six, Marie-Laure goes blind and her father builds a perfect miniature of their neighborhood so she can memorize it by touch and navigate her way home. When she is 12, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great-uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

It took me a couple tries, but once I was in the story, I feel down the rabbit hole. Beautiful prose, wonderful storytelling, and a very unique story. A little empty after it was done. Think that means a good novel.

I’d recommend this to anyone fascinated by the fall of the west & what was left. How this city and it’s characteristics survived, evolved, & held sway for 700 more years. Exotic food, ancient Celtic gods, east-west heal arts, hippodromes, and brilliant rules couples. Not to mention mosaics and fringe characters.

Grew on me after getting through initial strangeness but once the world is built, immensely enjoyable and kept me busy on Wikipedia. Apart from long winded exposition, very interesting and a brutal affair.

Ocyrhoe, a young, cunning fugitive from Rome, safeguards a chalice of subtle but great power. Finding herself in France, she allies with the persecuted, pacifist Cathar sect in their legendary mountaintop stronghold, Montségur. There she resists agents of the Roman Church and its Inquisition, fights off escalating, bloody besiegement by troops of the King of France, and shields the mysterious cup from the designs of many. Percival, the heroic Shield-Brethren knight from The Mongoliad, consumed by his mystical visions of the Holy Grail, is also drawn to Montségur - where the chalice holds the key to his destiny.

As someone who really loved the first 4 books in the series, this one was a different and interesting in it's own ways. That being said, don't expect a continuation of the Shield Brethren battling the Mongols.
