In a town in Persia, there lived two brothers, one named Cassim, the other Ali Baba. Their father left them scarcely anything; but as he had divided his little property equally between them, it would seem that their fortune ought to have been equal; but chance determined otherwise. Cassim married a wife, who soon after became heiress to a large sum, and to a warehouse full of rich goods; so that he all at once became one of the richest and most considerable merchants, and lived at his ease. Ali Baba, on the other hand, who had married a woman as poor as himself, lived in a very wretched habitation, and had no other means to maintain his wife and children but his daily labor of cutting wood, and bringing it to town to sell, upon three asses, which were his only possessions.

A Wonderful Classic Beautifully Told
A Classic still Worth its Weight in Gold or Sesame
This was an original and still stands the test of time.
We all know this story, most commonly, for its "Open, sesame!" that is still used today in literature or cultural tv when a character wants to pass through a closed entrance.
This narrator was easy to listen to and a marvelous storyteller.
I review all ebooks and audiobooks, whether it is gained by purchase or gifted.
