The Arabian Nights 3.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 12 reviews.
Daniel McCormick More than 1 year ago
This is a heavily-edited, heavily-censored, public domain version for "young readers" from the 1800s or something. The Barnes and Noble website falsely calls it a translation by Haddawy. Please don?t bother reading Arabian Nights in a bad translation. Stick with either Haddawy (best) or early Burton editions (note that his widow heavily censored them after his death, look for early editions). If you need a childrens version, look for a modern one that is at least readable.

$16.00 for the paperback and $34.00 for the Nook version and $13.75 for the Kindle version. Wow, I'm buying a Kindle!

These tales are simply stunning and so important given how far their influence has spread. This first volume certainly has the pick of the bunch though, as they do get slightly repetitive by the third volume (although even this adds charm to the tales as the repetitions spread out as if in a hall of indefatigable mirrors).

Readable collection of stories, drawn mostly from the primary story arc (that is, the actual Scherezade framing story) and a number of the most familiar stories. The language does not interfere with the tales in the way that Burton's does.

I bought this book to continue reading the rest of the stories available from the 'Arabian Nights' set. I really enjoyed reading the first book and I am enjoying this second book.
