Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family - and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.
A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, share the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science-fiction.

I think we can take a lesson from Frank Herbert and Dune “He learned rapidly because his first training was in how to learn. And the first lesson of all was the basic trust that he could learn.” I also think there needs to be a lot of exposure to different problems.

Dune (up to Chapter house of Dune) is a classic, and an amazing journey from a storyline perspective, political take perspective and creativity as well.

I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings.
