    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!"
    "A very dull listen"
    Overall

    I've always been interested in the Dune novels but never took the initiative to read the book. I thought the audio book would be a great way to get into it. I'd have to agree that it was because if it wasn't for it being in audio I wouldn't have gotten as far as I did. To me, the story is very dull. I made it about 5 hours into the book and I feel like nothing has happened. I may pick it back up eventually but as of now I feel like I'm just wasting my time.

    They were just kids when they stumbled upon the horror of their hometown. Now, as adults, none of them can withstand the force that has drawn them all back to Derry, Maine, to face the nightmare without end, and the evil without a name.

    Overall

    I can't say that this novel is anything close to being scary. It was more of a fun adventure. But what really made this book enjoyable was the narrator, Steven Weber. He did an amazing job! He actually brought the characters to life. I'm afraid anything I listen to after this will be a let down. Mr. Weber put a lot of heart and work into reading this. It made the 44 hours seem like 10 hours.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Erica says: "Possibly The Best Techno-thriller Ever"
    "This book is a winner!"
    Overall

    I must say I wasn't sure if I would like this book before starting it but once I did, there was no turning back. The story pulls you in and doesn't let go. I found myself unable to choose a side in the story. At times I was cheering for the protagonist then the next moment I was rooting for the antagonist. Twist and turns throughout the story made this the only thing I listened to for 2 weeks from start to finish. A word of warning though. It is a bit techie so if you aren't familiar with common tech terminology you may find your self wondering what its talking about. But I think you can catch on and follow along just fine.
