The Book of the Thousand Nights and One Night, Volume II

By Anonymous

Rating: 3 stars

This second volume of the collection of Arabian mythology was a bit of a mixed bag. Some of the stories were familiar (such as the tales of Sindbad the Sailor) but most weren’t. I was rather surprised by the amount and variety of sex involved, I guess I’m used to the Disney-fied versions. Towards the end of the volume I started to find the stories getting somewhat repetitive and a bit dull so I’m not sure that I wouldn’t have cut off Shahrazad’s head (the person telling the stories) before the thousand and first night
