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.

Fell in love with the stories

The stories told by Sehara were much more interesting than the original story. Although, I still prefer this over the original story where the King killed 1000 girls before he stopped. (Based on wiki, I haven't actually read the original book). My favourite one is probably the very first story Sehara told the Sultan.

I'd rate it higher but I just don't feel the connection between the two main characters. I felt like they were lumped together and forced to form a kindred spirit with each other.

This was an enjoyable book with good characters, not great, but good. I still haven't forgiven the main guy for just killing all those innocent girls the beginning. I found all the 'folk tales' to be enjoyable and connect well with the actually storyline. I also liked how the author added their own twist to the tales. Overall, it was a little messy but very entertaining. Loved the drawings towards the end.

I like this version of One Thousand and one nights better... This manwha not only has beautiful art, but also nicely woven stories. Although the stories themselves are not historically accurate, each tale adds a new aspect to the central story surrounding the tyrannical ruler and the story teller (who is a bishounen in this story).

Either way, I love how this manwha turned out and i wasn't disappointed.

[spoiler]This is my first and only boys love manga that have read; so I'm not 100% sure how to grasp my head around it. Artistry very beautiful. Although I can understand the feelings towards the characters.. Not being a man it's hard to understand the pleasure they feel in the smut scenes. I love the lengthy tales.. It's what keeps the story fresh and exciting. I wish the smith scenes were better detailed.
[a king goes mad from heartbreak and starts killing woman after sleeping with them.. One ends up being a man. He saves his own life by the stories he told and also gained the heart of the king. They go to war against the Christians.. They are separated by the sultans brothers betrayal. It was fixed in the end.. The sultan loses his title by a false word of his death. He then goes on an adventure to find the man he loves.. [/spoiler]

This was a really good story. I didn't know what to expect when I started reading it but it was well worth reading. The characters were interesting and the character development you see is well done. The main love story is slow and a bit angsty but that's what made it great. The events that build are sequenced well and the pacing fits. I couldn't put it down and I have a hard time finishing long mangas. Just keep three things in mind:
1) It is a manhwa so the reading direction and style are different but you figure it out pretty fast.
2) It's long. 11 volumes long so it might take some time to read it.
3) No, the stories aren't realistic or historically accurate.They're romanticized and changed to make a point. So if you're looking for a textbook or non-fiction book to read, look elsewhere. Just like the main story, they're fictional stories with fictional characters, plot, and settings. They are read and told for fun, not to be politically correct.

History (not a very accurate one at that), fairy tales (distorted) or shonen-ai? The main story would be down to around 3-4 volumes if it were not for the misrepresented side stories. One or two at the beginning were ok, but then I got started getting annoyed having to read all the other stuff. I would have preferred that more detail would have been added to the real plot-line instead of the stories, which were supposedly "lessons" for the listeners. Even in the final volume, almost as if to fill space to make it to a full volume, there was a story.
Credit, where it's due; the main plot was interesting, the characters engaging, the art good.

First off: The art of this Manhwa was very good, I always have to appreciate that. The overall storyline also entwined nicely with the stories told by the slightly altered Sheherazade. I was actually quite sceptical at first, since 1001 nights is one of thouse stories, that I have just had enough of. It was wrapped up really nicely in this case though, so i can definitely recommend it.

One snowy night, when I was sick with desperation and starvation after something to read, I stumbled into this wonderful manhwa with very high ratings and so-so coverart. Me, being the gullible person I am, decided to read this purely basing it on the ratings. I thought "Oh come on, bakas ratings isn't always non-accurrate and exaggerated. Let's give it a shot". Well...and so I did.

I've been disappointed before, but this one, it takes the price. Not because the story is bad, but because of all the ignorance I had to read in 11 (?) volumes.

First and foremost, I can't believe that an author/mangaka/whatever decides to write or do something, without getting her facts straight? Half of the things that is written in this manhwa is NOT true and some of it gives a wrong impression about muslims, greeks, and basically the whole world. I sincerley hope, for everybodys good, that no one use this as a Historical wikipedia. Because if he/she/it did, it would probably be the end of the World. Not exaggerating.

The potratition of the story is so-so, unfortunatly not my cup of tea because I felt that it lacked something essential to make it good. Read it if you like, but don't expect much.

i liked the stories alright until i reached the "ancient Greece arc". The only accurate thing about this was the guys' names. Socrates was married and had a wife, Xanthippe, that bit him because he didn't go to work and they were penniless. Alciviades was a seme and a bi at that, he was friends with Socrates but not his lover. The mangaka shouldn't have picked that era to portay homosexuality in her manga. Not all ancient Greeks were homosexual, otherwise I don't know how my nation survived and is still here 2500 years since that time...
The art is ok but when you know history, european mythology and the like, it bothers you to read all that trash... I hope people don't read mangas to educate themselves on global history, all these stories are just fiction. What she wrote at the end, that she made a research and found out that Socrates was gay is wrong, this is so frustrating, I can't even... (ノಠ益ಠ)ノ彡┻━┻

If you did not know the original story then i could tell you a little. I will not put this into a spoiler as it's a part of my review.

The story begins with a persian king whose brother's wife is being unfaithful with his brother. He is even more shocked when he knows his bride is just the same and has her executed. He then assumes that all women are the same. From that point, every night he sleep with a virgin just to kill her in the next morning. He rather executes them before they try to cheat him. Scheherazade, daughter of a minister who provides virgin to the king, offers herself to the sultan. In that night she tells the sultan a story and does not finish it. Being curious, the king delays her execution to hear the end of the story. The next night, she finishes her previous story and tells a bit of a new story. Wanting to know the whole story, the sultan postpones her execution one more night. It keeps going like that to 1001 nights.

That's the original one. Now let me ask do you feel curious and want to finish this manhwa? The origin not only influence the sultan but also the readers now did you feel that strong excitement from this manhwa? If you do then that's my point and if you don't then that will be your problem.
