DREAMER OF DUNE The Biography of Frank Herbert

by | Read by Scott Brick

Biography & Memoir • 19.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Famed narrator of the Dune series Scott Brick dials back his usually dramatic tone and gravelly timbre to a more conversational style as he narrates this legendary science fiction author's biography. Starting with Frank Herbert's humble beginnings in Tacoma, Washington, Brick adds extra warmth to heroic moments, such as the time Herbert saved his baby sister from parental neglect. Sadly, there are several moments throughout when the sound quality is inconsistent and it's clear that certain passages were redone. These edits pull the listener out of the flow of the narrative. But interesting facts about Herbert's inspiration for the Dune universe are sprinkled throughout, including the tidbit that the Mentats were based on his grandmother, who could easily figure complex equations in her head without the use of pen and paper.
