God Emperor of Dune

Dune

Frank Herbert; Read by Simon Vance, Scott Brick, and Katherine Kellgren

Macmillan Audio

More than three thousand years have passed since the first events recorded in Frank Herbert's DUNE. Only one link survives with those tumultuous times: the grotesque figure of Leto Atreides, son of the prophet Paul Muad'Dib, and now the virtually immortal God Emperor of Dune. He alone understands the future, and he knows with a terrible certainty that the evolution of his race is at an end unless he can breed new qualities into his species. But to achieve his final victory, Leto Atreides must also bring about his own downfall . . .

REVIEWS

Praise for God Emperor of Dune

Praise for the Dune audiobook—The First Installment in the New Multi-Cast Recordings of the Six Original DUNE novels:

“How does Herbert’s text come off when read aloud? Superbly!...The listener falls under the mellow sway of these talented voices. The production values here are top-notch. The sound is crystalline...But perhaps the most impressive thing about this production is the way all the neologisms and foreign terms sound so natural and flow so easily—and consistently—off the tongues of the performers.” —SciFi Weekly

Praise for the Dune series:

“One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”
 —Chicago Tribune on Dune
“Brilliant...It is all that Dune was and maybe a little more.”  
 —Galaxy Magazine
