My sister wanted me to read this before the movie came out so we could appreciate it in the same way. I'm hopeful that the movie does a good job with the costumes, especially the girl-who-was-on-fire outfit.
I felt unresolved, but based on what I heard about the subsequent books I'd prefer to imagine my own progression.
The voices were a little awkward, especially male voice imitations.
The story seems to have a number of elements that'd be interesting in the movie medium.
I finished listening to Dune just before this book, so I was a little spoiled. Dune is a far better narrative than the Hunger Games, so much so that it makes HG seem like an infant's book. I thought the story would have been more believable if it hadn't been set on our planet; the idea the majority of people could throw off their naturally instilled empathy for other humans is very difficult to swallow.
I loved how well the story flowed and how deeply vivid the characters were.
Dune stands alone. I've never read a book that begins to compare.
I have not, but he did a great job along with the other character voice talents.
I think Dune needs no tagline, it can hold its own.
I cannot recommend this audibook enough, it is timeless and mind stretching. It will challenge your sense of reality and notions of life and destiny.
