One Thousand and One Nights (Arabic: كتاب ألف ليلة وليلة‎ Kitāb alf laylah wa-laylah) is a collection of West and South Asian stories and folk tales compiled in Arabic during the Islamic Golden Age.

Reviews

  • Good pleasant read

    Other translations seem to have a lot of formality and jargon. This one gets right down to storytelling for all ages. I disagree with some of the negative reviews. Yes its a classic work, but its a work of stories deigned to keep people interested. So here it is presented in a fun read! What more can you want!
  • Terrible translation

    This is a terrible "translation". It's more like the person read 1001 nights once then wrote a similar story, but made it a children's book. Highly un-recommended unless you want a bad abridged version.
