Reliving a seminal novel

I'm about to launch into writing something a little more extended than just an ordinary review for SFSite - writing about Frank Herbert's "Dune", and what the book meant to me. When it's up, I'll post a link - but for now, I'm thinking back, and remembering my first reading of that book and of what a revelation it was to me. It's almost like looking back through the years, reversing the flow of time, remembering the things I did not know back then, and those were legion. We are all young, once.

"Dune" was one of the shattering books of my own personal Science Fiction Raeder's Odyssey. It would be interesting to know - do you guys have such a book in your own past? Something that... just... changed you...?
