    Story
    (393)

    A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are.

    Charlie R. Williams says: "good if you already read the book."
    "Devastating to not have the footnotes."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Footnotes. The woman who said the footnote number could just as well have read the footnote. CRAZY

    Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

    Where does Dune rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best performances with all of the voices. Just wish they had been more consistent using the actors vs going back to a narrator..


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dune?

    I love all of the Bene Gesserit lore.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A nice image of what they


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    All of it..
