I'd read all these books previously - all but the first two as they were published.
I love the story and all the detail she wrote into it. Doesn't feel dated at all, despite being twenty years later for me.
Listening though, I felt the narration seemed rushed and somewhat difficult to get into each time I started it.
I loved Brandon Sanderson's writing in the Mistborn series, and this was excellent as well.
I found the narration a bit off-putting at first, but quickly got used to it, and by a few chapters into the story came to feel that the narrator fit with the story incredibly well. He nailed Lightsong perfectly. I'm glad I took the the time to get used to him.
Great story, great narration. Great audio quality.
My sole exposure to Dune had previously been the movie from decades ago. My friends told me time and again I had to read this book. So I finally added it to my audio library, and I am actually glad I waited. While I don't deny it is a great read, I don't know if reading would top listening to it - and that is something I haven't felt for any other audio book.
Not only was the story enthralling from start to finish, but the narration and audio were perfect. The characters all came to life. Baron Harkonnen was especially chilling.
I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the narration.
It was an enjoyable listen from start to finish. As my first 'mystery' novel, it wasn't a mystery what was going on, but that didn't take away from the story any.
The narrator captured the main character beautifully. Having listened to her, I can't imagine anyone better suited to voice Amelia Peabody. I'm looking forward to the next listen.
I loved the story. The narrator took a little while to get used to, but after less than a chapter I didn't have a problem.
