Pop Culture R&R
I love sci-fi, hands down.
In college, many moons ago, I read the book Dune. This is said to be one of the best sci-fi books of all time, and was written by Frank Herbert in 1965. It’s not that long of a read, and you’ll mow through it.
Then, you can watch the movie Dune from 1984, by David Lynch, which is another classic. Not his best film, but certainly worthwhile, as it’s another classic that many natives have seen.
Now, however, I’m reading the Dune prequels, which were written by his son. They are tomes, but worth every page. I’m into the second book now, House Harkonnen.
