Read A Thousand Nights E.K. Johnston ô 5 Read A Thousand Nights Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free LO MELKHIIN KILLED THREE HUNDRED GIRLS before he came to her village looking for a wife When she sees the dust cloud on the horizon she knows he has arrived She knows he will want the loveliest girl her sister She vows she will not let her be nextAnd so she is taken in her sister’s place and she believes death will soon follow Lo Melkhiin’s court is a dangerous palace filled with pretty things intricate statues with wretched eyes exuisite threads to. Lo Melkhiin killed three hundred girls before he came to my village looking for a wifeShe that he chose of us would be a hero She would give the others life Lo Melkhiin would not return to the same village until he had married a girl from every camp from every town and from each district inside city walls for that was the law struck in desperation though it was She that he chose would give hope of a future of love to those of us who stayed behindShe would still be dead This book is magical It entranced me I wished it would never end and it s rare that I ve been so enchanted by a book It is dare I say a subtly feministic masterpieceThis book is a reimagining of One Thousand and One Nights and far superior to that other book I say reimagining and not retelling because it is not uite a retelling There are similarities A ruler who marries a woman only to kill her soon after A young woman who sacrifices herself in order to save a beloved from that fate Survival is of the essenceBut that s where the similarities end for this book weaves a tale with much complexity and beauty It was truly truly magical The setting is a desert kingdom and it is unbelievably beautiful in how this world is woven so subtly Some books build their setting with a lesson or a few paragraphs of history This book is far far ingenious and I truly applaud the author for creating such a wondrous believable world and in integrating it so seamlessly into this fantastical taleThe king in this tale chooses a wife from every village and kills her soon after Our nameless heroine chooses to beautify herself so that the king should choose her and in doing so save her beloved sister s life Part of the reason I love this book so much is that the love that the main character has for her sister is so fierce and so real My sister finds the fire in others I said Her husband may be the uietest man at the market until he sees her Then he will burn with a flame to match her own My sister is no fool and she is not tender hearted I said My sister fights for her home and takes what risks she must That is why I put myself before her today why I would not let you have her My sister burns and she does not burn for you There is pure love between the two sisters There is no envy there is no subtle hatred There is a bond between them that remains unbroken through distance There is no jealousy and the main character s love is the only motivation I am not you I said to her I was not bitter She had never made me feel the lesser and she had only scorn for those who did That is true she said And men will lack the imagination to see us as separate beings For that I am sorry I am not I told her and I was not for I love you than I love the rain Naturally our main character is determined to live longer than just one night Indeed others have lived longer than one night but eventually they all die She is determined to stretch out her life as long as she can and though fearful she does not lack courage I do fear him I said which was close to the truth I fear him as I fear the desert sun and poisonous snakes They are all part of the life I live But the sun gives light and snakes will feed a caravan if they are caught and cooked And though outwardly submissive she knows the true power a woman can wield I am yours to command husband I said to him and met his eyesWhen my mother spoke to our father she often said that He liked it the way she put herself in his hands Until just now I had not realized that since my mother was the one who allowed it she had power than even he might have realized Lo Melkhiin thought I was less than him but his was not the only tally I love the fact that there s no whitewashing in this book Granted I m not middle eastern and I can t comment on the accuracy but again this world feels real The characters are appropriately dark skinned and there is no attempt at green or blue eyes for the sake of Mary Sue ness The main character comes from a nomadic desert tribe and she looks the part We had skin of burnt bronze a deeper brown than sand and duskier where it was exposed to the wind and sky Our hair was long enough to sit upon and dark the color around the stars when night was at its fullest This is a re imagining not a retelling that you should discover for yourself Already the story is changingWhen men tell it in the souks and in the desert they shape it to fit their understanding It passes from caravan to caravan to places where they have never heard of the one called Lo Melkhiin The words change language and meaning is lost and gained in every vowel s shift They change the monster into a man and they change her into something that can be used to teach a lesson if you are clever and if you are good the monster will not have youYou should not believe everything you hear Eliot Jones Midnight Superhero young woman who sacrifices herself in order to save a beloved from that fate Survival is of the essenceBut that s where the

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
