Dune is a masterpiece unto itself! The narration was horrible as the voices of the characters kept changing, and you had to constantly figure out who was speaking. Whoever thought changing the character voices was a good idea was very wrong.
I've read this book several times watched miniseries watched the movies but this audiobook rendition is by far the best the voice acting aids in capturing the entirety of this book without the downplay that the movies have.
I love the Dune Series, and regularly reread them every now and then. I decided to try an audiobook this time around and was pleasantly surprised! This was by far my best "rereading" of Dune that I've ever had, it's so immersive! The cast was excellent, I cannot wait to relisten in a few months...
I LOVE this book, particularly the performance of Simon Vance and cast. This is well produced and performed to capture a reader from the start. I have listened to this at least 3-5 times a year for the last 5 years. Before, I read this book as a teenager and knew it was amazing, even then. It still speaks to the world today, especially the political nuances. Excellent book and equally excellent performance! Enjoy!
I usually buy the hard copies of the audiobooks that captivate me, this was one of those times. Excellent plot, crisp dialogue, this is storytelling at its finest, looking forward to the rest of the series. The reader did a commendable job, well done on all fronts!
Sometimes there is one narrator reading the dialogue of all the characters, and sometimes it's an ensemble cast. There are also times where it seems the ensemble cast is reading for a different character than it had in previous chapters. More annoying than confusing - but it didn't ruin the experience for me.
great story, but for some reason, the producer decided to change from straight reading (my preference) to the multi cast of actors acting out the lines style (annoying). not only this, but the book differs on these styles depending on the chapter. it's almost as if the book were pieced together from the remains of two previous audiobooks.
