So, I finished reading the book Dune.

It's not bad, but I don't get the burning need to make it into a movie.

2. I loved the books,

and the first movie was certainly watchable and had some really nice parts but this next one has my son and I waiting in anxious anticipation. The visuals in the book are amazing on the screen.

I hope you can see it and that it is as good as I think it might be.

10. No one important

except to me. We frequently talk about movies and watch them together and I was just reflecting on a very recent conversation we had about the new Dune as opposed to the old Dune and the books. In fact we have been talking about it off and on over the last 3 or 4 days after watching the new Blade Runner ( I had not seen it and he was wanting me to watch it so we could talk about it) that was directed by the same man who directed the new Dune. It seems exciting and we are anticipating a really nice, fun, cool movie under his direction.

None of this is important to anyone else. I was just joining in the conversation?

16. I believe he just misunderstood your comment.

"but this next one has my son and I waiting in anxious anticipation". Think he thought you meant your son was in the movie.

4. I read the Dune series starting in the late 60s when I was in HS...

...I thought it was great science fiction, and wonderful personalities.

I liked the 1984 movie better. I guess we'll see if the next version is the best yet.

5. I read Dune and A Clockwork Orange back-to-back

as a junior in high school. It took me a long time because I spent the first 50 or so pages of both living in the glossary, trying to figure what the hell was being said.

11. Both amazing books.

I still love to read the long books but I actually listen now. I do not have the time to actually sit and read and being a narcoleptic it is really really hard to do it anyway. Listening is a great way to make it through those long ones!

15. I read The Stand years ago.

I also read The Shining while staying in a hotel. Not the best of my ideas.

Great story. I read the first couple story arcs, and then let the series go.
