6. The Thousand and One Nights

The Thousand and One Nights

I probably did not do this book justice.  I read it in very long spurts with no interruption between stories.  It was frighteningly derogatory towards women (although pretty much all of them have been up to this point).  I won't go into that anymore or I will sound like my mother but the point is I thought it was hard to relate to.  I feel like I did not connect to any character and some of their emotions and actions baffled me.  Just kill the son of bitch before he has a chance to rape and kill anymore people!

  2. If you space it out it can make for an interesting read.

  3. I really enjoy your blog. I just started reading it and love your take on things. You are very funny but have a mature perspective.

  4. Yeah, there are some real gender issues here and a lot of wanton violence. Mixed feelings on this one.

    1. Yeah these early movies and books are real sexist, racist nightmares, aren't they?
