Why should you read "Dune" by Frank Herbert?
A mother and son trek across an endless desert. Wearing special suits to dissipate heat and recycle moisture, the travelers aren't worried about dying of thirst. Their fears are much greater. Soon, the sound of the desert is drowned out by a hissing: a mound of sand 400 meters long bursts from the desert floor and races towards them. This is the world of "Dune." Dan Kwartler dives into the epic story. [Directed by Recircle, narrated by Addison Anderson, music by Cem Misirlioglu / WORKPLAYWORK].
