Publisher's Summary

Here is a selection of some of the best-known and best-loved tales of The Arabian Nights, including "Sinbad", "Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves", "Aladdin", "The Talking Bird", and the "Fisherman and the Genie". In this "treasure house of pleasant things" you will find golden palaces, gem studded caves, and breathtaking gardens; you will sit by mysterious fountains, hear the crash of gleaming waterfalls, unearth magic lamps, take a long voyage to exotic shores, and meet flying men and mythical beasts.Nowhere else will you find such marvels, nowhere else will you find the impossible so real and convincing. For centuries The Arabian Nights has enchanted readers. These stories are presented here in a clear and direct style that renders them as fresh and as exciting as when they were first told.

Lively Nights

A lively delivery of the timeless classic. Holds your interest throughout. Good audio quality. The only disappointment is this unabridged audiobook is of a book that is itself abridged. I would love a full version of the 1,001 Arabian Nights. The imaginative, twisting tales are worth repeated listening.

The Arabian Nights

Prior to listening to "The Arabian Nights", my only knowledge of the literary tales was poorly made movies. I had no idea of the depth to the tales of Aladdin, Sinbad and Ali Babba and the Forty thieves.
These Middle Eastern classics were expertly translated and excitedly read.
