Summary

This multicast dramatisation of Arabian Nights: Volume 2 is an Audible Original re-envisioning of the iconic tale of Sinbad the Sailor - with a twist.

Adapted by Marty Ross, whose previous audio dramas include Romeo and Jude, Doctor Who, Treasure Island and Arabian Nights Volume 1 listeners can expect to hear Sinbad the Sailor as they've never done before.

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. However, his journey quickly takes a turn when he is led to sea by a mysterious woman dressed in blue, which begins his long and dramatic adventures at sea.

Starring Abraham Popoola, Adam Sina, Akin Gazi, Alyssa Kyria, Anoushka Rava, Aso Sherabayani, Bamshad Abedi-Amin, Daniel Naddafy, David Ahmad, Firdous Bamji, Gisele Payvandi, Hakan Silahsiz Hemi Yeroham, Ian Abeysekera Jonathan Morrison, Josh Zare Karim Kronfli, Mandana Jones Nezar Alderazi, Raghad Chaar Richard Reed, Sammy Broly, Tara Jaffar and Walles Hamonde.

Enjoyable

The performances are great and I love the mix of humour and seriousness. But some of the fight scenes went on a bit too long for my taste!

Doesn't Live up to Volume 1

Volume 2 encompasses the tales of Sinbad the Sailor. There is much adventure but these adventures are accompanied by a great deal of shouting and screaming which was not terribly appealing. There was also no advancement of the relationship between Scherezade and her Sultan which was disappointing.

I Love and Hate this audiobooks

It's a really interesting story, and the voice actors are really good. However, it is too short and seems more like a movie with just sound rather than actually a book that has been voiced over. There's also a lot of huffing and puffing noises, which gets quite vexing and at times there is some bad sound quality with voices being too quiet, loud or distorted.

Since I was a child, I love Arabians Night Tales.

Alladin and Abu are my favorite characters. I always love kind hearted heros fighting for justice.

It was good, but where is my ending!

I loved the story but I would really like to know what happens with Scheherazade and the Sultan! Is there going to be a last part?

Vol. II

Nice story for long, cross country trips. Timing for each epic spans an entire night.
