Yes. The nuances of this master craftsman's voice added immeasurably to the pleasure of
a much loved book.
Its a classic. Written before we became so jaded. It is simple, imaginative and hugely entertaining.
He brings expression to the old fashioned language of the era which can become a bit stilted to our modern way of expressing ourselves.
I have read this book so many times. Enjoyed its cadence like an old friend but this time the old friend had a fantastic voice!
Tim Curry is a craftsman, an artist and whatever he was paid for doing this ..... it just was not enough. The man is a genius!
It was funny, witty and made me laugh out loud
Granny. ...or the cousins.....or the brother.
She reads as though she is enjoying it!
Its mental chewing gum but its damn good, worth while mental chewing gum.
The complexity of the story is compelling. There are so many issues to explore.
The Sandworms and the Fremen
One narrator or a full cast drama but not both. This presentation became annoying.
Exciting, entertaining, intelligent
Plot is fantastic, it draws you in within the 1st few pages and you begin to really like the main character. then the action starts and it never really lets up.
Not a Dick Francis Book. I know Tony Britton is very talented and has a lovely voice but it was wrong for this character. He just sounded too posh and too old. Because I've read this book many times, it was quite offputting. It just somehow seemed wrong.
I wouldn't change a thing about this book. I love the transformation of the snotty, bratty princeling into a decent person. And I love the way Stefan Rudnicki reads - hell I could listen to him read the phonebook and it would be great
Cant think offhand of one special moment in this book but it was all just fun. In the best tradition of space opera
The top soldier! he is brilliant
Buy more in the series
Story is great. Intrigue, romance, humor all tied together with blindingly good science. To cap it all off, Grover Gardener's reading is faultless! He sounded like he was enjoying the book as much as I was. I am VERY impressed
In this book, Lois Mcmaster Bujold takes a familiar character who is often a secondary character in everyone elses' stories and gives us a whole new understanding of his world and his personality. Even though its a great addition to the series, it is a fabulous stand alone romp. Written with classic Bujold skill and humor, with the brilliant characterization we have come to expect from her books. Its intelligent and witty, sweet and forceful and this time our delightful Miles is just a bit- player. I didnt stop chuckling for days.
To hard to choose just one. Ivan getting stunned, the proposal, meeting Mom, meeting the inlaws, the tunnel,......it was all just too good to choose.
The best things are often hidden.
Keep them comming Lois, Its pure escapism for intelligent readers.
