The Book of A Thousand Nights and a Night (Arabian Nights), Volume 01

Excruciating is the best word to describe my experience listening to this. The librivox recording of the Burton translation was fairly well performed. There were some really good sections and no all-out-bad sections. However, the content seemed to meander through nowhere. There are a few stories that stick out. But, a lot of it seems like the work of a junior high student with a thesaurus. I think I'm going to skip the remainder of the volumes of this and opt for another translation.
