This classic novel is brought to life with a diverse cast of voices, trading in and out of the story depending on the significance and length of the conversation. Makes me want to go watch the extended directors cut of Dune now.
The oddness of this book has been cultivated to the extreme to make a truly fantastic story. In addition, I found that the build of this book was immense and the fact that the build never quite broke has made me enjoy this on another level. Overall I think that this is the type of book that you should press through the slow (but still interesting) beginning to the real gold.
This version of the book is strangely produced, with about every other chapter being performed by a full cast but the other chapters being narrated. The difference in voices for characters was confusing and made for a much less enjoyable experience of a classic.
the book it's self felt random and hard to fallow, the moments that I was able to fallow were dull and boring. the voice actors emotions sometimes contradicted the emotions of the book it's self. the only reason I finished it was because I had heard it was a great book but I found my self constantly wondering when it would pick up. also how is it that there was such little emphasis placed on the death of Paul's child? dumb dull and random sums up this book well
The story and performance were excellent. It would have been even better if the individual character voices had remain constant throughout. It's been a long time since I read the book. Glad I purchased this! Thanks!
An amazing world and a unique sci-fi journey. Wonderful narration and voice acting. occasionally jarring to go back and forth between pure narration and full-cast dialogue, but never a major detraction.
Narrator was great but the other character voices felt out of place as they came in and out at random points. Would have been better to just have one reader since the difference in tone and accents took away from the immersion.
