The Arabian Nights (or One Thousand and One Nights) is a collection of stories compiled by various authors, translators and scholars from countries across the Middle East and South Asia. The tales trace their roots back to ancient Arabia and Yemen, ancient Indian literature and Persian literature, ancient Egyptian literature and Mesopotamian mythology, ancient Syria and Asia Minor, and medieval Arabic folk stories from the Caliphate era. Though the oldest Arabic manuscript dates from the fourteenth century, scholarship generally dates the collection's genesis to somewhere between AD 800-900.

    The stories themselves are entertaining and easy to read. The language used isn't particularly archaic or stilted; it doesn't quite have modern characteristics, but it's close. The main problem with this version (Lang) is mostly that it contains notable omissions. This seems to be a heavily abridged version of the Arabian Nights. Even the ending has been cut completely, which is a grevious error. There are also odd choices of words from time to time which other translations have handled better.

    Great stories, poor print quality. The layout of many of the pages is awkward, illustrations in the middle of pages, stray letters or words. This just doesn't appear to be a "premium" copy.

    It was good but I would've liked the full version. It's an easy read. Sometimes the stories didn't flow into each other which confused me.

    Very interesting. It wasn't what I expected it to be, but it was very good. Nice and easy to follow and filled with lots of odd and interesting short stories.
