This novel is a retelling of the famous story of Shahrazad - the woman who saved a kingdom by telling stories to its sultan for 1001 nights. The main character in this novel, however, is Marjan, a crippled 13-year-old with a knack - and a love - for remembering and telling stories. An elegantly written, fast-paced tale that teaches about the power of story; a must-read.

A really good book! Got tedious at the end though.

A different look at Arabian Nights. Fascinating. And that wasn't even sarcasm.
