Audio Book Summary

SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE directed by Denis Villeneuve, starring Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, and Charlotte Rampling.

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.

A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. Frank Herbert's death in 1986 was a tragic loss, yet the astounding legacy of his visionary fiction will live forever.

    Good book. Audio quality must have been fixed after some of these other reviews. No skipping in 2020.

    Like so many others have said before, the story is great, the narrators/actors are great, but the skipping and jumping in the audio is terrible. Poor quality oversight on this. Audio starts skipping and repeating no less than 15-20 times throughout the book. Enjoy the story, but be cautioned on the quality of the file being used.

    Great book, a masterpiece of literature. This version is filled with audio errors. It sounds as if someone ripped this book from a scratched CD. Quality, 1/5.

    The narrator and production are actually EXCELLENT, but this copy is TERRIBLE. It was clearly recorded from a CD, skips and all, and there are entire minute long sections where it just skips back on itself for a while. Dune is amazing. This audio production is amazing. But the copy of it on this app is unacceptable. Avoid It!

    Great book! Love all the voices and sound bits. Problems mentioned in other comments must have been fixed. Nothing but smooth sailing and good sound in my read trough.

    TECHNICAL ISSUES: - Data artifacts causing lots of record scratching type sounds ARTISTIC ISSUES: - They switch between the narrator doing all the voices and a series of voice actors, which I find unnecessarily confusing Otherwise, incredible book.

    I\'ve been a lover of the Dune series for decades. I found the narration a bit confusing at times. It was hard to figure out who was talking.

    Always a great read. Been a very long time since I read the book and listening this time made for a wonderful experience. I did not give a 5 star only because I encountered moments when the playback stuttered and I could understand what was said. It may be a product of my connection but I have not experienced it with my other books. Fantastic book!

    Very annoying. More than one voice actor doing the same character. You’d hear the voice change mid-scene in some cases. Awesome book but terrible narration.
