Frank Herbert’s Dune available as an unabridged audio book on CD for the first time!

Whole Story Audio Books, exclusive publishers of unabridged audio books, are excited to announce that for the first time Dune - Frank Herbert’s science fiction classic - is available to buy as a complete unabridged audio book on CD.

Winner of the 1966 Hugo Award and the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel, Dune is widely considered to be one of the greatest science fiction novels of all time.

Dune tells the sweeping tale of a desert planet called Arrakis, which is the source of Melange: the 'spice of spices'. Melange is necessary for interstellar travel and grants psychic powers and longevity, so whoever controls it wields great influence.

The story explores the complex and multilayered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as forces of the Empire confront each other for control of Arrakis and its spice.

Narrated by a cast of 16 leading actors, complete with stunning sound effects and a dramatic soundtrack, this state-of-the-art production clocks in at a massive 21 hours across 18 CDs, and is bound to excite the legions of fans the book has generated since it’s first publication in 1965. Copies of Dune can be purchased exclusively from Whole Story Audio Books.
