Took me back to my youth watching Harryhausen

If you could sum up Sinbad - The New Voyages, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, entertaining and nostalgic

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the stories overall. 3 separate tales all part of the new Sinbad mythology. Pulp fiction is not what I have been reading so much these days, but this was a wonderful nostalgic trip to my youth.

It was the perfect blend of fantasy and adventure to wet my appetite complete with fantastic beasts, loyal companions and swashbuckling adventures. Sinbad is truly presented as a larger than life trickster hero just as he was intended.

Which scene was your favorite?

I really enjoyed “Sinbad and the Sapphire of the Djinn” the best of the three tales. Starting off with his crew angry at his foolishly made bet and ending in a way only Sinbad could deliver, it was great.The twist with the princess was my favorite part though I refuse to spoil it!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Return to a time of fabulous adventures.

Classic Sinbad revisited.

"This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast."

The stories in this book are a delight and a fine continuity to the old Ray Harryhausen movies of Sinbad the sailor. The characters and stories are faithful to what I had expected as a fan. Of course it couldn't have been a real Sinbad book without cool monsters galore and the author(s) have given us a generous helping of classic creatures. I absolutely loved listening to this and am hopeful to see a volume two soon. You have captured the imagination of that little kid in me who spent so many hours hypnotized by the old Sinbad movies. Well done.

Cheesy narrative with cheesier performance

Sinbad teams up with a crew of multicultural stereotypes, a quiet enigmatic female samurai, a blonde and bearded heavily muscled axe wielding Viking, and a sophisticated womanizing French archer.
The writing and performance reminds me more of a Saturday morning cartoon than a swashbuckling adventure in line with the Three Musketeers or Captain Blood. I was hoping for a lighthearted sword and sails adventure but this borders on laughable. The crew are probably the worst part. The cliches abound! Jem's performance shifts from bad Arnold Shwarzenegger impression for the Viking to bad Gerard Depardieu impression for the Frenchman.

The good? I enjoyed Jem Maztan's portrayal of Sinbad! It was a little over the top, but fun. Otherwise, It's a really tough listen.

SinBad

I was looking forward to this read, and a trip back to my youth and love of this storyline, and those like it... I was very disappointed... The writing has little flair or imagination. The characters are a entirely 2 dimensional, and the plots ephemeral at best... The performance was ok, if a bit caricatured at times... Overall an uninspiring work...
