Hugo and Nebula award winner.
The story of Dune and it's subsequent sequels and prequels were far advanced of their time when written and still are in many respects.
Set very far into the future it details the struggles and wars between noble houses for control of one planet. A planet important to the entire universe.
Each of the major characters and the groups from which they belong are so detailed and stand out from the book enough to have stories in their own right.
Frank Herbert uses our feudal past to construct an alien but familar future. Alien in that vast, mile-long worms roam the deserts, familiar in the forms and actions between houses and royalty.
The book describes, amidst the intergalatic spice war, the journey of one man to his destiny of super being. It sounds heady stuff but even today authors cannot re-create such a well crafted masterpiece.
