In this arabian night version, did it show a lot of s_x content? Am not quite happy with what i read previously.
After reading, i watched the mini series and a documentary. I learned what i read was quite edited for general readers. Not that i wanted to read about the s_x part. But i really want to read about the culture and history as well.
Am looking for a better or complete version.
I will read your blog later.
Hey memnoch, no actually i was suprised you mentioned it because there was no s_x content whatsoever, perhaps this is a children's edition. What I did find uncomfortable to read about (and let me know if you observed these in the edition you read) was how the women were usually portrayed here - except for a few characters they are usually unfaithful, and scheming. Also the fact that in most, if not all, of the stories wealth is usually discovered by CHANCE, not by HARDWORK, which probably had somethign to do with the times when the stories were told but doesn't really promote a healthy attitude towards it. Did you find both these themes in the edition you read?
Thanks in advance for reading my blog, i did mention that a fellow RP member posted about the book!
