Love the Narration Speed

The first thing I noticed about this audibook was the speed that Clive Johnson narrates at. I find most narrators are super slow. I think he has a nice, pleasent speed. I can actually listen at regular speed and not lose interest.
Sinbad is a tale I was not very familiar with. I think this story is great for kids if they love adventure, pirates, Treasure Island, etc. As a kid, I would have listened to this and reenacted this story as Johnson narrates it.

Classic!!

Everyone should know the story so my review is about the narrator.

He did a great job in engaging the listener to be attentive to the retelling of a great story. My kids managed to sit there the whole time to listen and was thoroughly impressed with he story. Great job Clive.

The launch point for the Sinbad stories

Although this is the 2nd of the 7 outlandish Sinbad stories, to me the second voyage makes a better first story and it's a great starting point for anyone who wants to read them all.

Nice Children's Classic

Very nice rendition of a classic children's story. I remember reading the Arabian Nights stories when I was young. Lovely narration. A good addition to your children's library. I was gifted a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Common values tale with a classic character

I liked this audiobook and recommend it. I liked this author’s ability to convey a message that is cross-culturally common with a classic figure such as Sinbad. It was entertaining, and the narrator had an appealing, captivating voice; I enjoyed his accent.

An Adventure as Big as a Child's Imagination

This is classic Sinbad! The adventurer that put my childhood imaginings in overdrive! Sinbad's travels always lead him to distant strange lands where he must outwit or battle fantastic beasts and monsters. This short story is no exception and doesn't disappoint. If you have children with good imaginations, this is a story they will enjoy. The story is suggested for 0 - 4 year olds, but I would say it is more suited for children from 4 - 8 years old.

The narration is performed by Clive Johnson who delivers the dialog effectively in his British accented voice. While you can tell the production was not done on a sound stage with professional quality equipment, it does the job well enough for this story and it's intended audience.
