I had not revisited Dune since college. This was wonderfully put together and narrated like a play. Just ordered number 2!
Brilliant book to begin with. Well narrated, several different people do various characters giving depth to the experience. No extraneous music. The strong narrative of the story makes it easy to pick up where you left off.
A very good story with an enormous amount of detail, which would have been easy to get lost in, but the narrators kept everything moving very smoothly. I highly reccomend this story.
I learned very quickly that without the various voices, this complicated network of pieced efforts from several characters would be outrageous to follow and keep up. Amazingly told and it brings a very modern feel to Frank Herbert's classic science fiction that will likely keep this forever timeless with efforts like this. Still confusing at times, but really unless you go through the book a few times you won't catch everything but bare with it, you will follow just enough to catch the main theme. Very well done and told.
The story itself, while confusing at first due to its many unreferenced words connected to the mythos of Herbert's Dune, comes to life in a way no other book I've ever read has. There's an excellent balance between the clear and emotive narrator and the other voice actors that make one feel they are listening to the enjoyable radio plays of yore. The use of sound effects also adds greatly to the experience. High quality, fascinating book. Highly recommended.
Love the audio book, wanted to read the dune books for a long long time, just never found the time..These are nicely done and very enjoyable look forward to having everyone of them in my audio library.
What can you say about this iconic scifi mastepiece. The narration was very good with the cast all contributing to the successful execution.
This book was quite good. I first read it in the 70's and it is a bit dated now but quite satisfactory. Problems were mainly related to the changing narration from a single narrator (who was very good) to a full cast (some of whom were very bad)
