The narration is weird. There are different voice actors performing different parts, but it's very inconsistent. Duke Leto, for example, switched from one actor to another mid story and never switched back.
this has always been one of my favorites. I only have one gripe and that is some of the voices used were kind of not right for the people being portrayed
Dune university is to SCIFI as Middle Earth is to Fantasy. Prior to Star Trek and Star Wars, no other SCIFI universe sold more books.
The story is great and so was the reader but they used several different pronunciations. It wasn't a distraction but the story of Paul Atreides rise has inspired many later fiction so sometimes the plot devices do not seem an unique as they were when published. Overall this classic is worth the purchase.
I read the book with my eyes twice before reading it with my ears. Both were great experiences, but now I know how to pronounce all the words and names. The performances were great and added to the telling of the story.
It was OK...I was kind of disappointed. However, given that it was written in 1965 it was obviously ahead of its time. I'm glad I got through it but I've listened to better, more engaging audio books
