Publisher's Summary

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

Jack Nolan's narration of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves was fabulous. He had a warm tone and his voice inflections were just right. With audio, he brought an old classic that I haven't read since childhood to life. This was a fun listening experience very well performed.

A Classic still Worth its Weight in Gold or Sesame

What other book might you compare Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves to and why?

This was an original and still stands the test of time.


Any additional comments?

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.
