  1. The story of Sindbad the sailor, but much like apparently all the other translated works in the little black classics editions, poorly translated to the point I hated one of my favourite stories from the 1001 Nights Just go and read another edition, pretty much at this point, a translation made by your crazy polytheistic neighbour that smokes way too much weed is better than this one.


  2. A couple of the stories from One Thousand and One Nights, these focus on Sindbad the Sailor recounting some of his travels to Sindbad the Porter I have found that the translated Little Black Classics always seem to be pretty poor and this one is no exception I also thought the storylines were far too similar to Greek Roman stories to be of much use to me Not written well and pretty boring, though I do actually feel bad about rating this one quite low I imagine another translation might be better [...]


  3. A little on the repetitive side but otherwise not bad.It s interesting to note that where it should say Allah it has been translated into God.


  4. 3.5 stars A great little snippet, showing 3 of the many tales that Sindbad the sailor tells Sindbad the porter This just reminds me how much I want to read the 1000 and 1 Arabian Nights in full I had an abridged version with about 20 or so tales when I was a kid, and loves the twisting story that always circled back and never seemed to end.It also reminded me of all the reasons I disliked The Wrath the Dawn, for missing the mark on the way the stories fitted together.A few people have commented [...]




  5. Taken from Arabian Nights 1001 Tales, Sindbad The Sailor adventures at sea is one of the tales told by Scheherazade to the Sultan Not one of my favourite as all 3 stories are kind of repetitive.


  6. More brutal than I expected but fun in its adventure kinda way God could ve been mentioned a little less I got it the first 2 times, Sindbad has a lot of faith.


  7. I enjoyed this little glimpse into the Thousand and One Nights Sindbad the Sailor recounts his travels and adventures to Sindbad the Porter, and although I found them somewhat far fetched, brutal, and wondered how such a level of misfortune could befall one man, they felt almost like gorgeous little fables.I m interested in the origin of these tales there is very little to go on in terms of where they ve come from, and even less on who wrote them That they ve travelled over to the West slowly, i [...]


  8. A quick, light and very enjoyable read Three tales from the adventures of Sinbad the sailor This was a very nostalgic book as when I was younger and used to watch Disney s animated film of a few of Sinbad s tales and my grandmother used to read them to me I forgot how much Sinbad fucking loves going gold Like, seriously He will do anything for that shit.



  9. The valley was full of snakes and serpents as big as palm trees, so huge that they could have swallowed any elephant that met themOverall Rating 3.6 5Sinbad the Sailor is a book that has been around for what seems like as long as time has existed Unknown when it was published, this is a book that surprisingly, not much is known about We do not know the date of publication, the author, or even what country it really hailed from, having spread around a lot of countries before coming to the West Li [...]


  10. I liked this little book to be honest wasn t the best book ever but it was quite entertaining and a bit gruesome which I love But I did not read any reviews about this book or know that it was translated So I basically went and read a book without knowing anything about it and that is fine because it was still awesome.I loved all 55 pages equally and I will eventually read it again.


  11. A great little introduction to Arabian Nights, with three stories of Sindbad the Sailor Well presented, perfect for an hour s delectation


  12. I haven t read this story before and, judging by the reviews of this edition, there are far better translations out there I enjoyed this but I cannot wait to read a different translation The Arabian Nights is a book that I have been wanting to read for quite some time now, I just need to get my hands on a decent translation So if anyone that actually reads this, if you know an excellent translation of the stories then please do not hesitate to let me know, I would be most grateful.


  13. I ve read a good chunk of the Tales of 1001 Arabian Nights Why on earth did I buy this then The answer is simple for Magi Magi is one of my all time favourite Manga series and I couldn t recall if I d read the original tale of Sindbad I didn t think I had Now reading this, I think I definitely hadn t read it before.Seeing where the influence came from for the popular character Sindbad in Magi was fun This tale is fun, although I imagine if I had no interest or motives from seeing Magi s base inf [...]


  14. ACTUAL RATING 2.5 STARSIt was simply okay Nothing special The story I liked, or rather engaged me, the most was the last one The Cannibal King



  15. Actually really enjoyed this Anyone who knows me knows I m a big fan of the power of imagination, and I really enjoyed the variety across these three short stories Very creative and vivid plenty of action and adventure Also loved that there s no messing around it s all about the crazy action and you can clearly imagine someone telling the story this way, with less description setting boring scenes and focus on daring feats and close calls.Loved it


  16. Although One Thousand and One tales is a well worn and written story made of stories, this particular addition is lacking emphasis It reads like a textbook, which on the bright side makes the comparison of similarities between books of other antiquity and this one much evident.


  17. Disappointing.There are tales here that echo Homer s Cyclops and appear in Marco Polo s valley of diamonds.As for any moral Well, he of fortitude in dire straits shipwrecked, abandoned, his crewmates dying of despicable fates can, with the mysterious aid of God the Adored find great fortune and contentment but he can murder on his way to these delights.Fireplace horrors for young minds.


  18. When Sindbad isn t thanking God, he is either looting or getting into troubleThe problem with reading books that you had loved as a child, is that you see the things you hadn t seen before Like the abject racism in this book The notion that all civilized societies are the pinnacle of goodness, while the uncivilized are barbaric and monstrous Misogyny is a big part of the third story Curious how Sindbad is misogynistic Here let me show you.Sindbad is in a kingdom where the rule is, if one marrie [...]


  19. A collection of three tall tales by Sindbad the Sailor, and on the basis of these ones, I think I m fine with the others being omitted It s a quick read, and kind of fun as well, but even with only three stories of in total less than 60 pages it already gets rather repetitive All three stories contain a minor variation of the same story Sindbad goes out to trade, ends up abandoned or shipwrecked on some island with some life threatening nemesis, but in the end escapes with great riches because h [...]


  20. As taken from the Arabian Nights, but without the western spin, so you ll find a Sindbad who is a pious merchant rather than sea captain with an eye to personal survival at any cost and profit, rather than bravery I found it interesting rather than truly engaging to be honest i like my heroes of antiquity in the mold of Odysseus of whose exploits the second narrative here seems rather derivative on reflection or Beowulf a deal smarts and bravery with the flaws, but still entertaining and well [...]


  21. It was definitely interesting to read the story of Sindbad, especially since I ve grown up listening to it being compared to the Odyssey The misogyny in it is shocking than I ve encountered in a long time, which is to be expected in a story that old, but it still made me cringe However, I do feel like I ve gained a lot from reading it, especially since towards the end I started thinking about Bilbo Baggins as a fantasy Sindbad I think there s quite a lot of material in that thought, but it s fo [...]


  22. This short story tells 3 other short stoires about a merchant called Sindbad the Sailor who travels the world and discovers all types of wondrous islands and people It tells the stories about the valley of diamonds, the black giant and the cannibal king It s a quick read and kind of a classic from the famous One Thousand and One Arabian Nights.


  23. Loved it It is not a style I would want to read often but the tales of the Sailor were imaginative and a bit crazy I loved the imagining the giant eagles and snakes and all the other crazy stuff I was pleased it was a short book and finished it one sitting.



  24. I have never read the Arabian Nights so this was a treat for me The three tales of Sindbad the Sailor s travels to distant lands and repeatedly overcoming death Great campfire read.
