hstapp's review against another edition

Go to review page


This volume is full of a lot of shorter tales, which makes it a bit easier to read than some other volumes. There are two longer tales in the book. The first is quite boring, but does give you an interesting insight into the religion and culture of the period. The second is fantastic. Definitely up there with Sinbad. For the most part the stories are interesting, but sometimes the brevity of the stories is so severe that they don't really feel like stories.
