Editorial Reviews

Review

Penguin has produced this magnificent, unexpurgated edition of the greatest collection of folk tales in the world...The Arabian Nights is not a book to be read in a week. It is an ocean of stories to be dipped into over a lifetime. And this new Penguin edition is the one to have. Settle back, pour a glass of wine and sail away with Sinbad to the Island of Serendib -- Christopher Hart The Sunday Times

This is a must-read for anyone who has never read it. I first read it when I was 34 years old. The story telling takes you away to a wild adventure of your own. Rarely, have I had more fun reading a book.

I don't remember this book being so bawdy, but there you have it. It is a good book to have because it is a classic
