Amazing book. Better than I remembered from when I read it at school. This particular audio book is strange. It cuts between two different recordings/narrators. One does all the dialogue himself. The other has various actors doing the different parts. Both are great, but the combination is bizarre.
"can't download, or deliver to my kindle fire"
Had some emails calling me back from help desk but it still doesn't change the fact it doesn't download in useable form to my PC (no itunes option) or Kindle fire, These gaps are surprising: It would make everything so easy to have a 'deliver to device' button like kindle books. I have tried to download special audible softwear, but then it clogs up my PC my being permanently on in the background even if I am not reading. I hope it is upgraded sometime soon.
Hope to be able to find out after compatibility is resolved sometime soon
One of my top 10 all time books
love this story and the perfomance of it
I have listen to this story many times, and its one of my favorites.
If you love sci fi you probably going to love this...
This audiobook was a true masterpiece of audio entertainment. The ethereal music did seem to suit the world of Arrakis as did the excellent voice. The way this story was both written and told allowed me to fully envelop myself in the world of Arrakis. One of the best audiobooks I have every enjoyed.
The book did make me have an emotional reaction but it was one I found odd. I couldn't resist the urge to smile as I became addicted to the tale like I was in an audiovisual trance. It did make me cry. Tears of joy from moments of triumph, rage from the sickness of the Harkonnens', gentle smiles from moments of tenderness.
This audiobook is a masterpiece just as the original novel of Frank Herbert was. A true perfect tale. Unmatchably highly recommended! 10 out of 10.
"a must listen!"
any GoT fan or iany scifi fan will thoroughly enjoy. definitely worth your monthly credit
"Thanks for the introduction."
I must admit to having avoid the Dune series, put off by the size of the books, but listening to the audio version was fantastic. The narrators were super, the author a word crafts master who moves the listener along with the characters from a beautiful world with water for all to a dry mostly baron planet with a beauty all of its own. With the need to protect the precious resources of Dune.
"more like a play"
very impressive production. but be warned this is a long book. well worth a listen
I have listened to this 3 times now it is incredible! Brilliantly read - great story with a wide cast of characters.
"Avoid! Avoid! Avoid!"
What the hell were they thinking??? The cast only narrates through roughly a quarter of the book, the rest of the time the narrator muddles his way through...the voice of the baron changes from a strong American accent to a olde British one and then back again in no time at all! This makes the listening experience extremely annoying and I would recommend this version to no one!!!
The story itself, although a classic, is somewhat muddled and takes ages to make a point on anything!! There is the seeds of something great, but it's too confused with its own self importance!
Fantastic story.. All sci fi fans must listen 2.. Even non sci fi fans will like. 10/10 5 star
