Dune  - Frank Herbert, Simon Vance

I love deadly sci-fi/fantasy politics. Hurray for worlds that no one in their right mind would want to live in!


I know I'm missing out on some of the details by listening to it, rather than reading it, but I'm enjoying it anyway. I think I enjoy slower-paced political stuff more now than I did when I was younger.


If I could pick, I think I would prefer this to be a 100% full cast audio production. I don't agree with all of the casting choices, but I still like the experience. My favorite is whoever is voicing Jessica. Leto was also pretty good.
