    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.

    Overall

    What a story! This is a complex and thought provoking fantasy filled with religious analogy. Some of the best fiction I have ever read.

    The reading and voice acting was suburb. It is the definitely the best I have ever listened to. Unfortunately it seems that only parts of the book were done in this way, the rest was read (very well) by the narrator. Truly a work of art. They have enhanced the book.

    I will search out other books read by this team.

    Interesting subject and good presentation. I gained a whole new understanding of our mind and the quest for AI.

    It has been the topic of many interesting conversations since I read this book.

    It is well read.

    Story

    Dave Barry Is from Mars and Venus is a hysterical compilation of the outrageous columnist's best pieces. Read all about Dave's unfortunate Wheel of Fortune appearance, his "non-lunch" with Hillary Rodham Clinton, and much more from a guy who knows where he's coming from.

    Thomas Cook says: "What show did these other folks hear?"
    "Very funny, poor audio"
    Overall

    The audio quality was bad, it gets real quiet and then real loud.

    But as always, Dave is hillarious! It is read well, the audio is the only problem.

    Even before the Beatles hit the big time, a myth was created. This version of the Beatles legend smoothed the rough edges and filled in the fault lines, and for more than forty years this manicured version of the Beatles story has sustained as truth, until now.

    James says: "Put Away Your, Hunter Davies"
    "Boring as a bad class"
    Overall

    The book reads like a poorly taught class on how to worship the Beatles. Too much detail!!

    I was interested in what kind of people they are and were, not who John dated when he was 10. I only made it through the first few chapters.

    But if you want the life story of John Lennon, this is your book.
