Loved the production value of it, but was a bit confused how it seemed to randomly switch back and forth without warning between the narrator performing all of the voices, and the other actors voicing their own specific characters
I enjoyed this book, as a story, very much. However, the choices made for the voice acting, as well as the music in the background could have been more carefully considered. The main narrator was very good. But some parts of the book include other voice actors randomly. They switch from one reader to several for the same character within chapters and even paragraphs. If you have the option of choosing another recording, I would suggest it.
I was very touched by the story and the people in it. I actually teared up a little at the sentiment of how the protagonist cherishes his comrades. Great story.
Tell me about hard sci fi books!
inconsistent voice acting. there are voice actors who play characters, but not all the time. very annoying
Fantastic novel, Herbert description of visual moments really drives the imagery and sense of desert awareness, that along with his highly detailed manor of description makes for a fascinating story. The narration was also amazing, having multiple voice actors for separate characters along with a dedicated narrator really makes it feel like a radio play.
I passed away many walking miles listening to this audiobook and it cast new tones on a story I had read many times before. The cast does a good job keeping you immersed.
This was my first audible book and I couldn't have chosen better. The story was engaging and kept me wanting more while the narrators spoke their roles perfectly.
There are certain chapters that are narrated by more than one person, each actor/actress speaking a different role, which made the story feel populated and while. At first I was not a fan of the random chapters that would include multiple voices and creepy ambient music and sounds, but they grew on me. So much so that I wish all audible books would adopt this method.
Having never read any Dune lore previously I went into this book fresh and unsuspecting. If anyone reading this review is considering this purchase, just buy it.
You won't be disappointed.
