With origins in Persian and Eastern Indian folklore, the stories of The Arabian Nights have been reworked, reshaped, revised, collected, and supplemented throughout the centuries by various authors and scholars - and are continually redefined by the modern translations of the Western world.

Very edited version

Could Audible not just let us know that this is a middle school appropriate version? As a adult, I prefer the full telling.

Great Story... However

This is, of course, a wonderful classic tale...however the reading here becomes a bit tedious.
