I will listen to this book again soon without a doubt - probably on my next roadtrip
long and nuanced with sci fi delight, Dune will leave you curious and mystified. a bit slow to start but with each chapter the plot unfolds and pulls you deeper into the story.
I very much enjoyed the narrative of this book. However there are complicated interplay between characters with strange names and strange relationships. The fact that actors were sometimes used to play these characters and other times not, made it confusing to follow. I do wish that they had been consistent in either the use of no voice actors on non use of them.
The fact that they switch back and forth from the full cast to only the narrator doing all the parts is a bit distracting. Other than that, this was an excellent performance, for both the cast and the narrator.
Narrator does this great classic true justice, heightening the drama and an injecting even greater depth to the characters, which I had not thought possible. Recommend listening only after having read the book once before.
Almost can't believe Dune was written/published in 1965. The story is relevant today. The worldbuilding is real and ruthless and tender. The voice performance wonderfully captured the multiple character omniscience the author embeds. Beautifully conceived and performed. Thank you, Tor.
The narration with various voice actors helped organize all the different characters. A truly epic story whose constant danger to the characters maintained an intense suspense. The author showed an incredible imagination for a different world with fantastic governments, societies, technologies and biology that can be reasoned to ponder our reality.
