    I don t know how this version serves as a Children s classics, but it was a bit of a burden to finish through I ve never read the Arabian night version of Aladdin before so it was interesting to read this perspective.If you re looking for a light read over a prolonged period of time, this is the way to go.

    What is a grown man doing reading Aladdin or the other tales of the Arabian Nights Well, though these stories have been annexed by children s literature, they are quite good in their own right Unfortunately, however, what makes the Arabian Nights tales truly great is the frame story Scheherazade telling stories to save her life The frame story then adds quality to all the other tales because of the stories told within the tales It s quite clever This edition of the Arabian Nights, as well What is a grown man doing reading Aladdin or the other tales of the Arabian Nights Well, though these stories have been annexed by children s literature, they are quite good in their own right Unfortunately, however, what makes the Arabian Nights tales truly great is the frame story Scheherazade telling stories to save her life The frame story then adds quality to all the other tales because of the stories told within the tales It s quite clever This edition of the Arabian Nights, as well as most editions of the Arabian Nights, don t include or even reference that frame story and it s a shame.As I said, the stories are rather good on their own Aladdin, in particular, is hardly anything like the version we are familiar with

    I m not sure if it was just this edition I was reading or what but I really didn t enjoy most of these stories I didn t like the way women were treated or portrayed, and it seemed like a lot of the time people cheated, stole, and lied their way to riches and never had any consequences for it or at least not permanent ones Besides that they just didn t hold my interest.

    What a painful read a loud to me Aladdin takes up half of the book with tales of Ali Baba and Sinbad filling in the rest My boys can read the rest on their own if they like We need to read something else.

  5. Jim Jim says:

    It was decent I honestly found the story to be a little dull as far as its plot I might revisit this book another day.

    It s just interesting to read these stories that were written so many years ago They really are from a different time.
