I listened to the Theatrical Production of Dune. Although the production itself was very well done, the producers left out large chunks of the book, especially parts leading up to the final battle.
For that reason, I gave it a rating of 3. I was disappointed that so much of the story was missing, therby diluting one of the great Science Fiction novels of all time.
Although this is obviously a popular book, I did not find it so at all. After plodding through about 4 hours of repetitious doggrel and (I thought) poorly done hallucinations, I abandoned the book entirely.
I was truly disappointed in this book. Plot development meandered all over the place and I nearly fell asleep listening to it on several occassions. I was actually glad when it was over.
I was not overly impressed with plot development through the first half of the book. To that point, the author seemed to spend too much time and IMO got bogged down in the details. In the second half, it caught fire especially with the battle scenes and picked up. I think this is a very average fantasy book.
