I’ve loved the stories from the beginning however the last book and this book were difficult to get through.

Not sure whether it was due to the writing or whether it was due to the narrator but Bones went from cockney to upperclass accent and it was difficult to get around.

I found myself pondering several times whether I could bare it as the book continued. If it was due to the narrator alone, I’m not sure how it got passed the studio. Unless it was something I missed in one of the other books...

That being said, the story is good, very well thought out. I probably would have enjoyed it better had I read it instead.

I really enjoyed the book, it meanders between reality and fantasy, consciousness and unconsciousness, the books present to the past.
The pacing therefore can also been good to slow however the premise of the book and the story means that it’s not overly distracting.

The characters are colourful and vividly described and the places are equally realistic.

I really enjoyed it and love the idea behind it!

Brilliant book, and really enjoyed it, my only criticism is that the characters seemed to change accents. May just be my perception as there is the narrators voice and then the actors voice and then their thinking voices. The two which were the most noticeable was the baron harkonnen and gurney, the baron started sound like James earl jones but then occasionally sounded like an elderly white English man, and gurney started off like an American trucker to occasionally sound like the same elderly white English man. Jarring at the time but didn't detract too much from the story. Might listen to it all over again!
