Book Description

Feb. 23 2011
Bawdy and exotic, Tales from the Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night features the wily, seductive Scheherazade, who saves her own life by telling tales of magical transformation, genies and wishes, flying carpets and fantastical journeys, terror and passion to entertain and appease the brutal King Shahryar.

First introduced in the West in 1704, the stories of "The Thousand and One Nights" are most familiar to American readers in sanitized children's versions. This modern edition, culled from the first three volumes of Richard F. Burton's famous ten-volume translation, restores the sensuality and lushness of the original Arabic. Intricate and imaginative, these stories continue to captivate audiences as they have for centuries.

The following stories can be found in this audiobook:

"Tale of the Bull and the Ass"

"Tale of the Trader and the Jinni"

"The First Shaykh's Story"

This is not what I was hoping for, very boring and the narrators voice is not comfortable to listen to. Still looking for a good audio book about the thousand and one nights.
