In an attempt to win the heart of her king and a nightly stay of execution, the beautiful and wise Scheherazade spares her life and enchants her husband with exotic tales of jinn, magic lamps, daring heroics and true love. First dated as early as the 9th century, this collection of stories-within-a-story, also called The Thousand and One Nights, is colorfully narrated and will charm listeners with the classic tales of Aladdin, Ali Baba, Sinbad and more.

    " Foundational text, of course. Found the archaic language interesting from a linguistic standpoint, and it added a bit of atmosphere. A lot of interesting stories in my abridged version, and a handful of boring tales: Sindbad and Aladdin were huge letdowns, probably the most boring sets in the book. Ali Baba still rules, though. "

    " We read this when we were studying ancient Arabia. We enjoyed most of the stories. "

    " Entertaining, but it's hard to put aside my feminism and ignore some of the attitudes towards women in these stories. "

    " I've been reading this on and off for a few months now. I wanted to learn some fairy tale stories from a different culture then the one I grew up with...besides having to battle through some pretty sexist passages, it has been enjoyable. Throughout the stories told, the role of women improves, which makes the stories more and more barable. "
