Though The Arabian Nights are generally known as stories for children, they were originally tales for adults full of adventure, sexuality, violence and the supernatural.

They certainly inspired the imagination of Sir Richard Burton, the 19th century explorer, linguist and erotologist who brought all his worldly experience and a superbly expressive prose style to bear on the tales of Sindbad the Seaman and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Scheherazade must keep her king entertained with stories if she is to avoid the promised sentence of death.

Philip Madoc's sonorous performance allows the tales to weave their own enchantment as they have done down the centuries.

Have you always loved reading but sometimes find it hard to find the time? Thereís nothing quite like curling up with a good book but many of us canít do that as much as weíd like. We sacrifice this special time because we have so many other things to do each day. Itís a common problem and itís the reason why people on average are not reading as much as they once did. Audio books bring the story to life just as the storytellers of the past did. They allow you to experience the book in a whole new way; in the way the writer felt and heard it in their head. You can feel the emotion when you allow audio books to let the story come to life.
