Reviews - What do customers think about One Thousand and One Nights, Vol. 1 (v. 1)?

Great beginning thus far  Mar 27, 2008
From reading the first volume of this manhwa series, I see the making of a beautiful friendship with this series and myself. It has all my essentials: gorgeous artwork, an interesting storyline twist, and it plays around with multiple genres (fantasy, historical, action, shoujo, and light shounen-ai). It also creates engaging characters who are human in their nature and emotions. There is tragedy behind the sultan's insanity and compassion for Sehara situation in trying to protect his sister. I like where this is going and I look foward to seeing new volumes of this series.
 
Wonderful twist to a classic  Jan 27, 2007
I am so glad I bought this manga. ::big grin:: I haven't had a chance (yet) to read the original translated version of "The Book Of A Thousand Nights And A Night", but this manga had piqued my interest. The art is nice, and the characters are interesting.
 
Very Surprising  Aug 13, 2006
I am not normally one to read shôjo or yaoi manga/manhwa, preferring books like "Lone Wolf and Cub", but when I saw a preview for this in a friend's Ice Kunion collection I thought the twist looked interesting and the art was very good. So I bought a copy, and was pleasantly surprised that the story held up to my expectations, too. The characacters are three dimensional wiithout being overly dramatic, the stopry flows beautifully, and as another reviewer mentioned, it is not all cute and silly, which is a good thing. There are some very adult themes going on (especially in volume 2) which may make some readers uncomfortable, but the pain of the charachters makes their plights more moving in my opinion. I await future volumes.
 
Better than the first one.  Jul 25, 2006
The second one actually gets the rest of the story rolling, so if you found the first manhwa boring, do give this one a try. Also, there are elements of boy love in it, so if that offends you it's best to steer clear of this.

That said, Sehara is an awesome character, and I can't wait to see how the entire cast grows.
 
Interesting New Take  Feb 5, 2006
This manga is an interesting new take on 1001 Arabian Nights. I like that all of the characters are fleshed-out and human. The sultan's bitter actions are motivated; the storyteller's choices seem reasonable; the sultan's best friend is the voice of reason. The stage is set for many new stories to be told. There is a sufficient amount of mystery about the sultan and the storyteller to keep readers interested in their fate, and the stories told by the storyteller are interesting and well-balanced, as well as complex and bittersweet. The art is also gorgeous. I'd love to read the second volume, when it comes out. I hope that the authors will let us see the sultan and the storyteller change over time; although I enjoy the stories that are told by the young storyteller, I do want to know how the main characters are going to be affected by the stories.
