Publisher's Summary

The first book in a new young adult line that asks listeners: What if classic Disney fairy tales had happened a little bit differently?

When Jafar steals the genie's lamp, he uses his first two wishes to become sultan and the most powerful sorcerer in the world. Agrabah lives in fear, waiting for his third and final wish. To stop the power-mad ruler, Aladdin and the deposed Princess Jasmine must unite the people of Agrabah in rebellion. But soon their fight for freedom threatens to tear the kingdom apart in a costly civil war.

What happens next? A "street rat" becomes a leader. A princess becomes a revolutionary. And listeners will never look at the story of Aladdin in the same way again.

    "Loved this!!!"

    I have to start out by saying Aladdin is my favorite Disney movie of all time. When my friend bought me this book for my birthday, I was suspicious. Would I like a retelling? Or is the magic I love so much in the Disney story be lost among a new storyline?

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!!! This book was fantastic! The first bit was basically word for word of the movie but once Aladdin hits the Cave of Wonders, that's when the new storyline begins. The author does an incredible job at bringing a whole new magic to the story of Aladdin. I loved the new characters and the backstory she gave Aladdin & Genie, and the new character development she added to characters. Jasmine is a total badass. Aladdin is no longer a guilty liar. Readers get to see the madness of Jafar.

    I would highly recommend this novel to anyone who loves Aladdin or readers who enjoy novels of impoverished rebellion. This was so much better than I ever expected it to be. I don't usually reread books (because there are so many I want to read) but his book I will probably reread in a few years.

    Loved every minute of this book. Hated that it ended so soon. But as they say, all good things come to an end.

    "Loved it"

    Huge Aladdin fan so not surprising that I found it. Great narrator and the plit definitely was an intriguing way of spinning the story. Loved how real the characters came across. Jasmine was writen as she was meant to be, strong and fierce. Aladdin was happy go lucky and clever as always. Loved the addition of characters, just sad about Genie's part.

    "uninspired "

    great narrator
    not much of a "twisted" tale. the first half seemed like an exact copy of the Disney movie. the last half wasn't very exciting or intriguing. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    "I wanted to like this but it was just boring"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Just a boring, unimaginative "re-telling" that borrowed certain exact passages from the Disney film version but with a totally different plot line. I guess they figured that the characters is Aladdin are already so well known that they didn't have to do any character development on them?!!?!? Well, when you are telling a different version of the story where they are not actually the same charters, you do. Flat, boring characters. I was so bored I barely listened to this book. I really thought I would like it as I am a massive Disney fan and love Fairy tales and fantasy books. But nope. Don't waste your time or money.

    Story
    "Can you just kill Jafar already?!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Since I was in the car with nothing else to do, yes it was time well spent.


    What was most disappointing about Liz Braswell and Disney Press ’s story?

    It was way too long and too detailed. The last few chapters had me rooting against the good guys just so the book would end.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The book was too long.


    Could you see A Whole New World being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No please don't

    "Really Loved it :D"

    to be honest I was kind of reluctant to read this book after I saw so many low ratings on it .. but I decided to see my views on it since I like Aladdin so much .. and I'm so glad that I did .. the story was well written and it gave so much depth to the story to each of our beloved characters especially Genie .. oh man I love this guy and he was even more adorable in this book
    the narrator did a very good job narrating the characters but he might need some improvements .. but good job overall I liked the book and enjoyed it so much :)

    "I love Aladin"

    the narrator was very good . extremely easy to understand and had some good choices for the voices.
    the storyline followed the original very nicely and was well thought out.
    I was hoping for a different ending however, it is refreshing from time to time to have the unexpected occur. overall I enjoyed the book, but I do not think I would read it again.
