I loved everything about this audiobook. It was my first "epic" but I got through it in around 9 days. The voice acting was great and kept me wanting more. The story is exceptional.
"Great scifi story"
Very impressive audiobook production of many voice actors and a fantastic story well worth the price paid
Intense political original just happens to be SciFi much to enjoy, ponder I look forward to listening to the next book in the series.
"a great book "
the only problem with this is that it had to end. I could have listened to it for a lot longer.
"A Sci-Fi Classic"
Dune has been on my list to read for a long time, as it is regarded as one of the best science fiction stories ever written. A title it thoroughly deserves, it never feels of its time and is brilliantly detailed and paced, setting the desert planet of Arrakis clearly in your mind.
The action and tense plot are well served by the voice acting, unfortunately the full voice cast is only used for some chapters and although Simon Vance does a great job solo it is a little jarring and confusing if you are unaware of this.
This is a great story and will suit any fan of science fiction or stories of dynastic rivalries.
A fantastic book brought to life through a great performance. Brilliant voice acting with subtle musical additions to really help set the tone. Couldn't recommend it more.
"a personal classic."
A personal favourite from childhood with good voice performance. I enjoyed this version and will look forward to listening to it again.
That was a radio play, not an audiobook. A large cast, the sound of desert winds and prose full of rich detail. I found it difficult to stop listening. Truly wonderful. I can't wait to return to this universe.
"Great Book - Bewilderingly poor production."
The book itself is great, and this is apparent although I had not read it before. It is rich and gripping, with memorable characters and real drive to the plot. However, the narration is a seemingly random mix of a principal narrator (who does a decent job) and a cast of voice actors. Characters are therefore not rendered with a consistent voice - it becomes difficult to work out who is speaking, an unforgivable flaw in a book as complex as this. I'm surprised it got through whatever quality control system the publisher uses, and if I'd paid the full ticket price I'd feel I'd been conned. An amateurish rendition of a classic book.
"I love this book it's wonderful"
This is one of the books I turn to when I want to re-read an old favourite, it's great
