I really don't see the epic potential in Dune. Having gotten halfway thru the first novel before giving up, my problem with it is Paul: he's not likable or relatable. He's an adolescent power fantasy wish fulfillment - which is okay - but he's not more than that.
The whole book is about Paul reluctantly having to adapt to new surroundings.... again and again while coming of age. If you actually read the whole thing you'll find out its one of the most epic science fiction stories ever.
