Great story line, have always wanted to read/listen too Dune, being a SciFi fan. This book in parts was great but oh so long and boring in places.
This book was wonderful. But I could have done without the poorly recorded character cast. But the Narrator was very good.
Its frustrating how narrators playing certain key roles change throughout the reading, especially because you are expecting to hear one voice that has been presented as that character. Very disappointing, since this is otherwise a 5-Star book.
I didn't know much about Dune before I listened to this audio book. I tried watching the movie once, but didn't really understand it. However, this book is good. The reader is great and the story keeps your attention. I wasn't really satisfied with how it ended...but I suppose it had to end the way it did. I'd recommend it...now I'd like to rent the movie again.
I love this book, it's by far one of my favorites. It's refreshing to read (or hear) a book from someone who clearly has a deep understanding of the human mind and experience. Someone who can convey depth of emotion and intrigue, macro, and micro scales.
Dune is a world imagined so thoroughly it's like I'd been there myself. A romantic vision of an unromantic affair.
All I can really say is that Dune is stunning and brilliantly written.
I'm just listening to the book after having read it many years ago. I had enjoyed it so much then and my opinion has not changed. It's a terrific book.
This one is a stunner, from beginning to end. It's got actors and production music and the story is simply a masterpiece. This could have been 10 x the length it was and I wouldn't have minded a bit.
