In Volume 2 of Arabian Nights we return to Sultan Shahriyar’s palace where Scheherezade is using her spellbinding storytelling abilities to save both her and her sister’s lives. As much as the Sultan wants to kill her, each night he is drawn in by her tales and spares them. Scheherezade weaves a long, winding and exciting tale about Sinbad the Sailor, a reckless young man who has inherited his father’s wealth and spends it foolishly. His debts eventually force him to leave Baghdad and find his way alone.

Loved it again and again. I really hope there will be volume 3. The story line and the accents are just mesmerising.

This multicast dramatisation of Arabian Nights: Volume 1 is an Audible Original reenvisioning of three iconic tales - with a twist. Adapted by the great Marty Ross, whose previous audio dramas include Romeo and Jude, Dark Shadows, Doctor Who and Blood and Stone, listeners can expect to hear Sheherezade, Ali Baba & 40 Thieves and Julnar the Sea Born as they've never done before.

To my surprise the original of Arabian night is very dark at times, very sexual, and very different to the stories I have heard when I was a child. I could not stop listening for 2 days and was really disappointed when realized that Volume 2 has not been released yet. It is so good. It almost feels like I lived in a fairy tale for 2 these 2 days. Loved it!
