    Capturing all the complexity and grand themes of the original, this prequel to the Dune series weaves a new tapestry of betrayal, passion, and destiny into a saga that expands the tale written by Frank Herbert more than 30 years ago.

    Robert says: "Maybe better than original Audible production."
    "Not Simon Vance, but appropriate for author change"

    Would you listen to Dune again? Why?

    I want to listen to the whole series after I listen through all of them the first time. Knowing the tidbits you learn as you progress through the novels improves awareness in the story and you can pick up new stuff every time you listen. It's a great example of the power of the Dune Saga.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's not Frank Herbert, but I found this story more riveting and addictive than the other novels. Having experienced the other stories, you know what will come, but how everything pans out is really fascinating and still holds interest.


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

    Scott Brick is a good narrator, but Simon Vance is much better at making characters come to life with his talented acting ability.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could pay attention that long! It is too long to listen to in that way.
