  • Excellent story, weird audiobook

    The story of Dune is excellent and quite enjoyable. What wasn't enjoyable was that this audiobook had random scenes done by voice actors. The vast majority of the book is read by a single narrator. The inclusion of these random scenes makes it a little hard to follow. It's distracting and tended to leave me scrambling to figure out who was talking, as I had gotten used to the narrator's voice for certain characters. Overall, the story is excellent and I really enjoyed it. If you get this audiobook just prepare yourself for some confusion and annoyance about the voice acted scenes.

  • It will keep you riveted!

    Wow! What an adventure! This is a brilliant read and a well laid out story, set on the desert planet 'Dune'. A place where the universe is battling to control the 'Spice' found on this wretched land. This is a story of corruption, control and universal domination between various races who will betray one another at the drop of the hat. Whoever pays the highest price get's the greatest army, or so they think. Baron Harkonnen thinks he has the new planet administrator, 'The Duke of Atreides', wrapped around his fat finger and so he does, but the Baron had not accounted for The Dukes prophesied son Paul. Paul is a long awaited production of the 'Bene-Jeseret' experiment, which has been in development for many generations. A Bene-Jeseret is born and raised through a selection process of the highest order and of the best training known. Once Paul Atreides comes of age, he is put through the terrible 'Jongebar' test which could cost him his life and he survives with unprecedented results. A brutal plot is afoot to take absolute control of 'The Spice' and The Atreides family line is destroyed, only Paul and his mother survive and go into hiding and become allied with the planets local natives. They will rise again, a most powerful army that sets the universe on its edge. It's a long trilogy and sometimes hard to follow, but certainly worth your time. I listened to the audiobook version of this (over 22 hours) and was a little disappointed with this, as the characters voices and narration changed constantly. This is the only reason I've given it a 4 star. I found that the main narrator sometimes played the individual characters, which is fine, but other times there were other people doing those same characters so there was no real consistency to the audio flow. I found this distracting because I was expecting a particular character voice to be heard and it would have been even more enjoyable if the production company got this one right. They should have stuck to either the single narrator, or the different character voices playing their parts throughout... one, or the other but definitely not both.

  • A good rendition

    The book is perhaps the pinnacle of sci-fi. Excellently narrated and well acted, but the changing from the narrator’s voices to the actors for seemingly randomly selected chapters was somewhat distracting.

  • Good

    Starts a bit slow and thin but becomes compelling. Voices good although a couple of changes ring a bit oddly (thinking voice vs speaking voice? ) Thoroughly recommended

  • Entertaining but disappointing

    The book was enjoyable, though it was trying not to be for around the first half or so. Herbert throws a lot of terminology in with no explanation, thus you have to finde a dune wiki to make sense of it if you are having troubles. The world building element was among the best i've seen in spite of that thing, but the storytelling wasn't my cup of tea. Every treachery is known by the reader the moment it's very possibility arises. There is little to surprise you in this book, because you know the thoughts of both the good guys and the baddies. Call me pampered, but after reading asoif i was expecting more out of this book, and i have to say everyone who read it spoke of it fondly.

    Thanks for your feedback!
