This book was such a fun read. Mr. Diamond has perfectly channeled the Arabian Nights in this entertaining tale of Sinbad the Sailor. Everything is well done about this book - fast-moving plot, interesting characters, exotic settings, along with a lot of swashbuckling adventure.
If you want to be transported to an exotic and exciting world, read this book. A great read - reading this book is well worth your time!!!
Unlike the 1001 Nights' tales, there are no supernatural creatures (apart from a talking bullfrog!), but there is a wide mixture of human participants - including a Norse king and a Pirate Queen. Sinbad's episodic trials flow neatly, one to the other, and, while not strongly engaging the emotions, provide the reader with a relaxing entertainment. If you liked the original stories, then you'll like this book; that pretty much sums it up!
I have few few references for Sinbad from my childhood but I have always been aware of the archetype of this character.
This tale was like reading one of the classics. Something I knew had meaning and reference in popular culture, but haven't had the chance to read. I enjoyed the vivid word building. I loved feeling as if I was there experiencing all the adventure with Sinbad for the first time.
The writing style itself was something I had not experienced much before. I generally lean towards YA, Fantasy and Sci-Fi books. This story was definitely out of my wheelhouse, but in a very good way. I loved the satirical prose that Diamond wove through this book.
To be honest, while there are, of course, elements I may have liked less than others (considering what I normally read) I enjoyed branching out of my comfort zone. And, who doesn't love an adventure tale?
I know pretty much everyone has heard of Sinbad and his many adventures. Why don't you try out this tale and see what you think? You may just find yourself on a whirlwind adventure you never want to leave. I am giving this book a rating of 4/5.
