For most of history Anonymous was a woman Virginia Woolf3 12 stars A Thousand Nights is almost certainly going to be compared to the other YA 1001 Nights retelling published this year The Wrath and the Dawn which is not a good thing Because even though their premises and foundations are identical these two books could not be different and they really do deserve to be viewed as completely separate creaturesThe Wrath and the Dawn is a lusty romantic drama that makes our hearts beat faster It s pure enjoyment It doesn t have a message A Thousand Nights is exactly the opposite of thatI m not going to sell A Thousand Nights as something it isn t It s a slow paced dense thoughtful and literary work that I m not sure deserves to be in the YA section Not because teens aren t smart or cannot appreciate this book and its themes but because there is a certain level of easy readability expected from YA and those of all ages who pick this up might be put off by the pace and complexityCompared to The Wrath and the Dawn the writing and atmosphere are far well suited to a 1001 Nights retelling set in the pre Islamic Middle East Demons likely djinn or ifrit though neither term is explicitly used roam this dusty desert landscape and one has possessed a king forcing him to take and kill wife after wifeBut I didn t open with that Woolf uote just to practice my feministing The original 1001 Nights story is a sexist piece of beautiful lyricism There are wonderful things about it and yet it treats women like worthless bits of garbage to be discarded at the king s will The reward for the woman who is clever enough to keep herself alive by telling the king a story every night is that she gets to marry the murdererSo Johnston takes that and subverts it She has tried something very brave here and I was surprised to discover how well it worked Everyone in this book remains nameless apart from Lo Melkhiin The effect is that this becomes a story about the overlooked the unnamed the anonymous And it is these that have the true power in the end from the unnamed narrator to her unnamed mother and sister to the unnamed women in the asrIt s a very different kind of retelling that deserves to be read It is slow paced but have patience with it I don t think you ll regret itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest Family Album A Collection of Poetry just to practice my feministing The original 1001 Nights story is a sexist piece of beautiful lyricism There are wonderful things about it and yet it treats women like worthless bits of garbage to be discarded at the king s will The reward for the woman who is clever enough to keep herself alive by telling the king a story every night is that she gets to marry the murdererSo Johnston takes that and subverts it She has tried something very brave here and I was surprised to discover how well it worked Everyone in this book remains nameless apart from Lo Melkhiin The effect is that this becomes a story about the overlooked the unnamed the anonymous And it is these that have the true power in the end from the unnamed narrator to her unnamed mother and sister to the unnamed women in the asrIt s a very different kind of retelling that deserves to be read It is slow paced but have patience with it I don t think you ll regret itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest

Watch your world burn light of my heart Tomorrow we will find another one and burn that too I just want to put this out there most of my reviews are negative because i don t know how to review books i

to leave me speechless Alright here we goRemember this book Less attractive sister of The Wrath the Dawn according to most people I read a few reviews to get some idea why everyone seems to dislike it Well what i can tell so far based on the reviews i read people aren t pleased with similarities between both books You do realize both are retellings of One Thousand and One Nights right I might be the only one who thinks A Thousand Nights was 10 times better than The Wrath the Dawn Why you ask Because unlike the other one it delivered what it promised I was so pleased with that Plot rundown Lo Melkhiin is looking for a wife he has already killed hundreds girls before he came to HER village She knew he would choose her sister since she is the prettiest girl in the entire village She vows she would never let him take her She sacrifices herself in her sister s place now she believes she will be dead soon When she finds herself still alive a day after day she starts to explore Lo Melkhiin s

REVIEW A Thousand Nights FREE DOWNLOAD ñ A Thousand Nights S mourning Through her pain she calls upon the desert winds conjuring a subtle unseen magic and something besides death stirs the airBack at the palace the words she speaks to Lo Melkhiin every night are given a strange life of their own Little things at first a dress from home a vision of her sister With each tale she spins her power grows Soon she dreams of bigger terrible magic power enough to save a king if she can put an end to the rule of a monste. So you should know that I m partial to books set in the desert or retellings of Arabian Nights so naturally I expected to LOVE this book WellDo I gotta story for you s Sit tight fam we got a wild ride ahead A v coherent list of my thoughts during this book This chick doesn t have a bloody name Or if she does she s NEVER referred by it In fact NO ONE has a name Except the freaky but hot and brooding king guy The writing is so weird you re never sure if its talking about past present or whatever the heck bc the time frames are not distinct or even slightly apparent There s literally no purpose to the entire story like whats going on I m never sure The Arabian culture in expressed in a strange way It s not necessarily wrong or false its just weird and like a lot of things were translated weirdly For example titles would be like lady bless or daughter of my heart or daughter of mine and im like bruh I know you re trying to set the scene for historic or whatever but you could literally just say my daughter Also a lot of the culture isn t explained so it just sounds strange There s a point where this unnamed girl the narrator tells a story of her father s father s father And I kid you not she literally refers to him as that for the entire length of her monologue Honey he s called your great grandfather Also in that story her father s father s father talks to an effing camel And the effing camel talks back In fluent elouent language Yeah I know It s supposed to be a retelling of A Thousand Nights Which if you didn t know is basically the story of this girl who marries a king who is known for killing his wives yikes and this girl devises a plan so every night she tells the king a story but stops in the middle of it So that he ll let her live the next day bc he s so engrossed in the story and wants to hear the ending And that continues on for a 1001 nights and then the king guy has a change of heart and yada yada they fall in love etc etc So that s the original story But in this bloody retelling THERE IS NO NIGHTLY STORY THERE S NO ENGAGING TALES THERE S NO NOTHING Its so weird the only few sentences that they exchange each night are about her bloody sister It doesn t make sense what the heck I want a refund AND LIKE HER NAMELESS big surprise there SISTER IS CONSTANTLY TALKED ABOUT YET SHE LITERALLY IS PRESENT FOR 0034 SECONDS I thought this would be like The Wrath and the Dawn But its actually like just bad The only pros I have for this book was that the font was large and the chapters were short And the only entertaining thing was the scarce chapters that were told from the anonymous speaker But even those got old after some timeNeedless to say this is exactly how I felt when I finished There is life and there is living 1 stari dont know if this specific to my copy or like the author got this done but my copy smells good and no not like book smell this thing is like actually perfumed i know i m as weirded out as you are right now The Ants Go Marching One by One just weird and like a lot of things were translated weirdly For example titles would be like lady bless or daughter of my heart or daughter of mine and im like bruh I know you re trying to set the scene for historic or whatever but you could literally 27 Groups of Exercises: Trumpet just say my daughter Also a lot of the culture isn t explained so it Dear Jane just sounds strange There s a point where this unnamed girl the narrator tells a story of her father s father s father And I kid you not she literally refers to him as that for the entire length of her
