What we'll do
Do you love books?
Find yourself transported several lightyears away reading that favourite novel of yours?
Do you consider yourself a book worm? Or, a book worm of sorts? We are launching the Brisbane Geek Book Club, a book club that will meet monthly here in Brisbane! The book club will meet at various cafe's and other venues where we can discuss everything about our favourite books, what books we have read, share books, as well as the Book of the Month! The book club will encompass a relaxed atmosphere, where members can talk to eachother about books in general. As part of the event, the book of the month will be discussed, but will not be mandatory to attend. For those who did not read the book of the month, the discussion will be a good insight or review of the book in question.
The book club will encompass books of various genres, from Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction, and even comics, it will be a great place to discuss your literary adventures with other like-minded book worms!
Book of the Month!
Each month, we we will be having a 'book of the month', which will be a book where members, if they want to join in on the book of the month, will be given a title to read between book club meetups.
This meet-up we are discussing Dune by Frank Herbert!
The Duke of Atreides has been manoeuvred by his arch-enemy, Baron Harkonnen, into administering the desert planet of Dune. Although it is almost completely without water, Dune is a planet of fabulous wealth, for it is the only source of a drug prized throughout the Galactic Empire. The Duke and his son, Paul, are expecting treachery and it duly comes - but from a shockingly unexpected place.
Then Paul succeeds his father and he becomes a catalyst for the native people of Dune, whose knowledge of the ecology of the planet gives then vast power. They have been waiting for a leader like Paul Atreides, a leader who can harness that force...
DUNE: one of the most brilliant science fiction novels ever written, as engrossing and heart-rending today as it was when it was first published half a century ago.
