Description

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. 

©1965 Frank Herbert (P)2007 Audio Renaissance, a division of Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC

Many voice actors, sometimes not used

It is a wonderful book but sometimes they dont use the voice actors and it is annoying to asign a voice to a character in your mind only to have it then read by the narrator. Don't get me wrong, the narrator is good, but then you get used tohis voice for the characters and then boom! the actors voices again. It makes you think as if there were two of the same character. Kudos on the baron's voice actor.

impressive performance

the book itself is great
it was my first audiobook and I have to admit I am impressed
I wasn't too thrilled at the idea of someone reading for me
but here it felt more to like I was listening to a theater play !
great work !

The performance is a disaster

Dune is one of my favorite books, I read it multiple times so I thought to give the audio version a go. What a disappointment. For whatever reason, and this is sadly continued throughout the series, they chose to use a lot of voice actors, some good soma bad. They also clearly didn't record them using the same quality and you can hear a disturbing echo with some voices. The main voice (I think he's Simon Vance) is great, they should have left him perform the entire book alone. But no, they added individual voices for each character... but only sparsely. For example: one chapter with the Baron would be read using different actors, another chapter using the main voice (Vance). Some chapters feature a voice actor for Paul, one for Jessica, another for Stilgar and so on... Others are Vance all alone. Clearly they cut Vance's performance and added the "theatrical" chapters after. Or vice-versa. It's a mess... and the only available version of a great book. If I hadn't read it beforehand, I wonder if I had liked it at all. Some of the voices seem fake... not believing what they're reading... I don't know. I would say avoid this version, look for something else.

Épique mais prétentieux

J'ai lu Dune ado, en reecoutant aujourd'hui je prends conscience que le souffle épique et la création d'un monde son gâchés par le ton prétentieux et les réflexions pseudo philosophiques permanentes. Mais bon, ça reste une référence. La lecture est très bien faite avec plusieurs voix différentes sur certains chapitres.

Dune - a must read for the science fiction enthusiast

There are lots of good stories out there, but through DUNE, Frank Herbert has given the world a true blend of the fantastic, sprinkled with some reality. The beauty of an audiobook, is that it takes our consciousness back to the times when stories were shared mouth to ear. A great way to enjoy these stories!

Great performance, poor Audible structure

The performance is great, and story of course is a must-hear. It is a shame that the title is not divided by chapter but by books. The navigation hinders a bit the experience. Still recommend it.

the definition of fantastic

sometimes words are difficult to understand why when you're not english native (old fashioned language and theatrical approach). Anyway fantastic story with great characters and scenery.

This is NOT a faithful recitation of the book!

A lot of the reviews listed here slam the cast for inconsistencies with voices portrayed by certain actors, but I didn't have a problem following who was supposed to be talking. Anyone who read the physical book previously should be able to follow the dialogue easily enough. What caught me off guard is that this listing takes significant liberties with what is presented to us as consumers of this product. It does not follow all the characters like the physical book does, instead focusing on Paul practically to the exclusion of the rest of the cast. This presentation leave out roughly 50% of what is presented in the physical book (that is my estimation and not an exact amount). Therefore I feel that this audio book should be re-titled to "Dune, or the Story of Paul". This is not Dune as I know and love, and should at least be tagged as an abridged version of the story.

Leaves Out Descriptive Text of Dialogue

This leaves out all of the descriptive text surrounding dialogue so that you have to rely on the acting to understand to the dialogue, including knowing which character is speaking. I want to hear all of the author's words, not some actor's interpretation of the words.

Wonderful production!

WOW!! The narration in this book is always good with segments that are GREAT. There were some complaints about the changing of accents or voices. I think of this in these terms. The normal narrator goes along telling you the story, and then at times there is an 'enhanced' scene, a scene where the voices are really acted out, usually with several different voice actors. I think of this as a picture in a book, this enhanced scene has a different set of voices because of the change in actors, but at these times you are also sucked into the story a bit more. Eventually the enhanced scene ends and the story is passed back to the standard narrator. As for the sound effects and the music, I think they all add to the richness of the story. I was never distracted from the story because of them. When I first heard the change between the 'enhanced' scenes and the standard narration, I was a little confused, but I quickly recognized the extra enjoyment I got from these enhanced scenes, and looked at them as a positive factor rather than seeing them as a negative. If I had known, going into the recording that it happened this way, I don't think I would have been confused at all. I think if you go into this thinking that the story was recorded with an excellent narrator, then the producers went back and 'enhanced' certain scenes for your enjoyment, you will be able to fully appreciate the wonderfulness of this recording.

Starts out great


Starts out great but then the narrations begins to vary, sometimes it sounds like a full cast performing, then it switches to a single narrator doing voices, then that narrator is switched with another who sounds totaly different. Then it goes back to the full cast w/ many voices. The changes are jarring and happen without warning often in the middle of a chapter so you are constantly confused as to who is speaking and what is going on. There is no consitency in the narration of voices- all very random and sporadic. A headache of a listen and considering the level of detail and involved plot elements this makes for a very confusing experience.
Not well executed.

Please. Do You Really Need Another Great Review?

Frank Herbert, I OWE you. I owe you a LOT. This was one of the very first books that truly stirred my love for science fiction. You SPOILED me. You made me demand better writing from the authors I followed, and better development, as well. From this book on, I became harder on myself, to read works that challenged me, that made me ponder well after finishing the novel. I hungered for better writing that combined story, action, flow, cadence and for God's sake, CREATIVITY. Thanks, Frank.

THAT'S what good writing demands of us, and if the author excels at his or her craft, this book is the perfect example of what can happen.

In Dune, you get galaxy-sweeping politics, messianic jihads, genetically-enhanced warriors and spacefarers, pirates hiding ruling classes, clones that psychically destroy their victims, fantastic ecologies and creatures, religions that manipulate families and bloodlines, and countless castes intertwined with ruling houses that all depend upon a drug found only on one desolate planet - A planet with its own secret and massive agenda, hidden within the howling desert plains covering its surface. And wait, it's followed by yet ADDITIONAL novels in the series, some better than others, and then yet ANOTHER series by the author's SON, done decades later, that provides tremendous PREQUELS, based on his father's notes? Finally, throw in excellent male and female narrators that fit the characters they portray, and individualize each character.

Come on. Do you really need another great review to buy this audiobook?

Please.

brought an old classic to life

I first read this book in 1980 in the back seat as my family did a two week camping road trip, and I loved this story. I must have read Dune over 20 times, it was that good to me. When I heard about the audio book I was a bit hesistant that they might ruin one of my favorite stories (like they did with the movie!!).
But the narration and characterization of the actors, were wonderful, giving the story a richness and fullness, a 3D immersive experience.
It made a great story that much better.

Good book!

Overall this was a great listen. However, I was somewhat annoyed how sometimes the voice of different characters were spoken by different actors, and sometimes they weren't. At one point even within one chapter they switched back and forth which mad it somewhat confusing. I did enjoy some of the sound effects though. Great listen!

Pretty Cool Story - Very Original

The story is fantastic.
The only reason I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the structure of this audio book.
It is theatrical with many characters (many voices) and then it changes to the main narrator who will also do his own versions of the character's voices.
It would have been better if it was either narrated by one person or a theatrical presentation with many actors, but not both.
I hope that I made this review clear.

Dune narrated anew

I read the book watched the movie and series and listened to another version of the Dune audiobook. Usually I prefer audiobooks with solely reader but this version captured me nonetheless. The voice actors were chosen very well and fitting to the characters, even changing in tone and way of speech according to the character's personal development. Apart from a few passages that should have been read by these actors but were instead performed by the main voice this audiobook is a definite recommendation.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

ACHTUNG: Halbe Audioqualität zum vollen Preis...

Die Geschichte ist großartig, ebenso die teilweise Hörspielartige Lesung mit sehr guten Sprechern überzeugt mich. Was mich dagegen sehr ärgert ist die halbierte Klangqualität die sehr an eine 70er Jahre Telefonverbindung erinnert! Ein Blick in die technischen Daten offenbart: Audio: aac, 22050 Hz, stereo, 62 kb/s - Normal wäre: 44100 Hz, stereo, 125 kb/s Halbierter Frequenzbereich und halbierte Bitrate, was auch deutlich zu hören ist - und ja, ich habe beim Download "Beste Qualität" ausgewählt. Für den vollen Preis finde ich das ziemlich unverschämt, daher nur einen Stern in der Gesamtbewertung.

Fast perfekt

Zur Handlung will ich gar nicht viel sagen - die sollte nach fast 50 Jahren eigentlich fast jedem geläufig sein.
Wer den Plot nicht kennt, kann sich umso mehr auf eine sehr untypische aber faszinierende science-fiction story mit politischen Machtkämpfen, Betrug und Verrat, mit religiösen Prophezeiungen und der Ankunft des Messias, sowie ausgeklügelten planetaren Extrembedingungen freuen.

Das Hörbuch wird von einem angenehmen Sprecher in sehr gutem british english vorgetragen und ist somit auch für den Nicht-Muttersprachler mit hinreichend Vokabelkenntnis verstehbar.

Das Hörbuch wurde zudem streckenweise durch weitere Sprecher und Hintergrundgeräusche ausgeschmückt und wird dadurch noch mitreißender. Aber leider nur streckenweise - Ich schätze etwa 70% des Hörbuches werden von einem Sprecher vorgetragen, und nur der Rest wurde etwas aufwändiger produziert. Daher mein Kommentar "Fast perfekt" mit 4,9 Sternchen.

Viel Spass auf Arrakis

Excellent production with only one small blemish

Excellent production. Excellent speakers. The story itself, one of the greatest sci fi novels of all time. But there is one blemish on this otherwise impeccable product: Whoever split the audio book in its "chapters" should be fed naked to a sand wyrm. How can you place chapter breaks so stupidly right in the middle of book chapters. The whole idea of the "stop at end of chapter" function is supposed to be that you can lay aside an audio book when the story makes a break, and pick it up later to resume listening with the beginning of the next story part. This is not the case in this audio book where the "chapter breaks" break actual chapters of the book in nonsense fashion, and will have the App end your session right in the middle of something happening, to resume the next time in confusion as you forgot what was the action that you are thrown in without introduction.

bis dato beste Dune Audio Umsetzung

Dune ... ein überwältigend gutes Buch, eine Mischung aus Mystik, politischen / geschichtlichen Thriller, Sci-Fi, Fantasy mit einem kleinem Schuss Philosophie. Diese Produktion ist einfach genial, fast schon ein Hörspiel, verschiedene Stimmen verleihen der einzelnen Personen mehr Eigenheiten und erlauben aber auch eine komplexere Persönlichkeit. Die Geschichte ist wie eine Welle die einen ergreift und mit sich reist aber dennoch nicht greifbar ist - denn genau das ist „plans, within plans, within plans" oder wie Churchill sagen würde a „a riddle inside a mystery, warped in an enigma"

Good,but,for flair, they kinda hurt the experience

Overall presentation and story is good, but what did take me personally out of the story, was the multiple voices for certain characters. Paul, the protagonist, as an example, sometimes has the main reader reading Paul's lines while other times someone else reads Paul's lines. It has a jarring effect and it takes you out if the experience. Same goes for his mother, Jessica. Why they didn't just stick to one person to tell the story, I simply don't understand.
