Daily reminder that if you read more than two chapters of Dune Before dropping it you are a pleb
>>
>Look Mom I did it again!

Oh thank god, I only got to the end of one before getting fed up with all the force fed info. Whatever happened to exposition? Info dumping is a cancer, especially in science fiction. Discovering a world with the characters does wonders for a setting, Bradbury being a fantastic example of Sci fi without the plebiscite writing.

this, the plot was written like a christopher nolan film
>>

Heh, you reminded me of the opening of (one cut of?) the Lynch film. Several minutes of exposition as the camera moves in front of a painting of the characters. I can see how that might be necessary, but that is really not how you make movies.
>>
>>7628020
what lynch film?
>>
>>7628037
Dune, naturally.
>>
>>7628020
This only happens in the extended version, wich Lynch did not have control. This version was heavily edited and stretched, and he even asked for his name to be taken out of the credits.
>>
look at all these plebs who first of all have no patience and second of all missing out on a treat in philosophical literature
>>
>>7627971
>he opened it at all
>>
>>7627971
Go suck a dick, Dune is cool, needing to categorize others as pleb, patrician, whatever comes from insecurity and low self-worth.
>>
>>7627971
You're a faggot OP. I read Dune and didn't really like it, but I managed to finish the book just fine. I'm sorry people don't conform to your autistic standards
>>
>I fucking love the Dune film (not even the faithful TV miniseries that properly adapted the book, literally the shit movie)
>hate the book with a burning passion
what is wrong with me
>>
Well I mean if you want to get technical it isn't explicitly broken into chapters, there's just a break for a quote and an entirely new scene starts.
>>
it has its flaws, but I love it.
>>
Dialy reminder that if you dropped Dune before the Emperor God you're a turbopleb.

>Not enjoying Lord of The Rings in space

I wasn't much impressed with it either, and has currently put it on a break, but
>reading only two chapters before deciding to drop something
And you're supposed to be a /lit/ard?
>>
>>7629978
A pleb
>>
>>7629982
Pleb.

>>7627971
You just can't see the terrible purpose.The plots within plots.The meanings within meanings.
