From Yen Press:

Everyone knows about the story of Scheherazade and her wonderful tales of the Arabian nights. For one thousand and one nights, she entertained the mad Sultan with the adventures of Aladdin, Ali Baba, Sinbad, genies, and many other mystical creatures. But what if Scheherazade was actually a boy desperate to save his sisterís life? What kind of strange things would he do to make sure that he survives to tell the tale? This new twist on one of the greatest classical folk tales just might keep you awake for another One Thousand and One Nights.

i loved the story and art. i almost skipped this one so glad i didnt biggrin when i started reading, i couldnt put it down, only took me 2 days to finish reading all 11 volumes. would of finished it in 1 day but took me a while to find the last 2 volumes.Anyway the main story and the sidestories were very great! though sometimes i get frustrated when sehara starts telling a sidestory at a very interesting part in the mainstory x.x. and i looooved the ending. it felt very complete and satisfying smile but theres a certain part i thought was too fast paced
Spoiler (highlight to view)
the part where shahyrar goes to find sehara in beijing. it felt kinda quick how he reached there

The sidestories were mostly tragedies, but were also happy...happy tragedies? x3

did u notice most BL manwha have satisfying endings that feel complete? (like totally captivated, boy princess, running on empty etc. maybe its just me ._. )

Reading some of other people comments, I find that I can't agree with some of them.

At first, I was confused when it jumped to the sidestory and the main story. But I got used to the flow and I enjoyed them both. It also made me reread the story to nail down what was really happening whenever I get confused. A good trick from the artist and author to get us to reread stuff.

The uke and seme might seem unrealistic for some commenters, but I think the character development really explains their action, even if some people don't want to believe it.

But then again, it might be the matter of taste. I got hook onto this story because I like stories that are like twisted fairytales and the sidestory in the first volume got me hooked.

I don't like angst or tragic love stories, but even with these stories that Sehara tells, each has a moral. This book is wonderfull, beautiful, enchanting... I finished 25 chapters up to around book ten in two days. I really couldn't put this series down, and I ended up readind till sunrise despite having many finals the next day... Sehara is one of the most favorite of all my favorite characters- strong yet kind with an air not of arrogance but confidence, yet humble. Intelligent and wise, I have yet to see such a brilliantly created character..
smile Oh and to Jane Doe, he was um.. fingered..? >.< it seems that it was a while after being whipped, because most of his wounds had already healed. he prob fainted and then woke up.
Some may say it is very sad.. but read on and you will not be failed. Anyway.. must every story end romantically? Its a sort of nice pace from all the happy mangas I always read. A night of a thousand dreams is just really deep. I've read the novel of the girl as the main character, it was good as well.. but I don't know why but Sehara being a guy that can actually be respected makes it so much better than the original.. although I did love the novel's stories she told better lol smile

This is really explicit but i can't get it out of my mind
in chapter 2, did Sehara got raped after being whipped?
Or was sultan just rubbing the ointment on his scars?
The conversation with his younger sister made this more suspicious.....

Shahyrar (how do you pronounce that anyway...?) said it for me when he complained that Sehara's stories were all tragic love stories... since I don't like angst, the story in this title is a bit heavy for me, but still quite well told. Volume 7 threw me for a loop with the anachronism, but otherwise I'm just willing to go with the flow and let Sehara tell his story, if only to see what Shahyrar's reaction to it will be. After all, the format is really similar to the original 1001 nights, so why should we complain?

[update] Coming back to this after quite a while... and having read Volume 9... I must add that the little we get of the main story in each volume is frustrating. It's just enough to awaken your interest, but not nearly enough to whet your appetite. The side stories do have a point to them, but right now I rather wish I could have more of the main story instead. The suspense is killing me!

i really really really like this manga. but the fact that i am very interested in myths, folklores, etc, might be a big factor on my why i love this manga. plus, i really liked the real book (1,001 Nights). the art is awesome too. My only complaint is that the stories are sort of.. um, well, i dunno, for me, the stories were kind of out of place.. like the transition to the storytelling was a bit awkward?? ANYWAYS, nevertheless, i am still giving it a 10/10

the main story is good, the side stories are good too. But mixing them together is a bit too much. Also its pretty much a bunch of tragic love stories where no one ends up happy, so if you're into that sort of thing then you're probably a masochist.

Seriously, 1/4 of the manhwa is the main story and 3/4 is side stories that the Sehara tells in between the main story. It kind of annoys me because i really want to know what happens next in the main story, but i like the side stories too. The stories are all folktales and myths that supposed to tell a moral or a lesson that Sehara tries to teach. Although, I don't really get the actual morals =.=;;, i don't think i'm smart enough. It is unbelievable that anybody just can suddenly stop and listen to Sehara's random stories. He must have amazing persuasive powers. I also like the author's writing at the end of the book. I learned many things from that; he talks about some pretty deep stuff sometimes.
