    Story
    (1008)

    Emperor Mollusk. Intergalactic Menace. Destroyer of Worlds. Conqueror of Other Worlds. Mad Genius. Ex-Warlord of Earth. Not bad for a guy without a spine. But what's a villain to do after he's done... everything. With no new ambitions, he's happy to pitch in and solve the energy crisis or repel aliens invaders should the need arise, but if he had his way, he'd prefer to be left alone to explore the boundaries of dangerous science. Just as a hobby, of course. Retirement isn't easy though.

    Kat Hooper says: "Hilariously wacky!"
    "Extremely fun book! Family friendly was a big plus"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have, but I have not convinced too many to try it...yet.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story was extremely fun and the cast performance was very fitting to the characters. Mr. Martinez has a touch of Adams in his delivery.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Aiello’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


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

    No, it was a great motivator to get the kids off to school on time. So we got an installment every morning!

    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.

    Joshua says: "Wonderful production!"
    "An epic masterpiece, awkwardly presented."

    Story
    What did you love best about Dune?

    It has been a long time coming to this story. I was way too ADHD to sit and read this when I was younger. Now I have avoided phone calls and ignored work to listen to this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dune?

    When Gurney held Jessica hostage.


    Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The bounce between single narrator and cast performance was disconcerting. Either presentation would have been acceptable, but both didn't work well.
