Review for "The Arabian Nights":
King Shahrayar‘s wife has had an affair with another man. In a rage of vengeance, he sets off to re-marry and put to death a new wife each day, to seek revenge on his former love.
Shahrazad, the daughter of the King's adviser, offers to marry the King in hopes that she can be the one to mend his heart and teach him to love once more. To stall her execution, she tells him a plot twisting story each night, leaving the ending untold so he will keep her alive another day. But what happens when she
runs out of story to tell? The future of the kingdom will be decided by these joyful stories of ancient folktales about love, loyalty and courage.
