There are several references to Baghdad in these stories. Iraq was a part of ancient Persia. I fail to understand how then the book can be termed Arabian. I would think the original stories are Persian written in Farsi and then adopted in Arabic eventually due to their popularity.
This story is excellent. A creepy, Victorian gothic horror story. I'm glad there are more of these to read. Highly recommended.
I haven't read very far into the book but I already like it. It's reminiscent of The Pickwick Papers. I almost thought Dickens was writing it under a pseudonym. I hope the humor of these little anecdotes keeps up!
This book is hilarious. Don't hesitate, download it now. You won't regret it!
