REVIEWS

Praise for The Winds of Dune

"Scott Brick delivers an impressive one-man show. Brick's voice is ideally suited to this sprawling story, the second book in the Heroes of Dune trilogy. In many scenes Brick must handle differentiating between the speech and thoughts of the various characters, and he does so with aplomb...Listeners will be glued to the high drama." - AudioFile
 
"This is actually a very good story, easy to listen to and becomes more involved as the metaphorically speaking pages are turned...Once again, Macmillan has produced a polished product and with Scott Brick narrating, you can be sure the story is well delivered." —SFcrowsnest
