On a serious note, Mulgrew makes an outstanding performance on this recording. It’s astonishing how each book in this series is bettering on the story.

Read this, get past the first couple if it’s a struggle as this saga is has all come together beautifully.

I think I am going to need to listen again...

This book has inspired works and research that I admire, that's why I decided to listed to it.

It's written in a language that is a little inaccessible (perhaps because it's older).

The different narrators are good in of themselves but the devision between them confuses me. What I mean is that it is not intuitively clear to me why one voice is narrating at any specific point.

I gave it the rating I did because although it confused me a little I think that a second listen might clarify the message in the work. It may be that this text needs to be read with a purpose as opposed to an 'easy' listening book.

I've seen the film, played the computer games and even read the book before. So much is compacted into this tale and the audiobook allowed me to concentrate on events because it is (finally) clear which character is saying what!

I've spoken with many others who have either attempted to read or actually read Dune, they all describe it as a mission – this version makes accessible the epic.

A lovely continuation for TBTCI

Where does The Brain's Way of Healing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably up there with the most facinating. It's probably very good to read as a stand alone book and having read 'the brain that changes itself' it makes for reaffirming what I thought I understood regarding the brain's way of changing. It's also a rather optimistic book that let me feel like I am more in control of my body than I realise.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are a few case studies with touching endings so yes there were some tears.
