Publisher's Summary

In the mystical land of Arabia, there is secreted a magical door that opens with the command, “Open, Sesame!” Inside lays the plunder of a century of robbers and mercenaries. When Ali Baba witnesses 40 thieves open this door with the enchanted words, endless possibilities begin to unwind before him.

    "OPEN SESAME"

    This was a delightful listen. Not a dull moment. Plenty of twists, almost a detective story at times. Serendipity takes place a couple of times, but it does not overwhelm the plot and I guess in real life, stuff happens. There are a couple of really good characters in this short story.

    B.J. Harrison does a lot of these books, because he is good, at what he does. He has never disappointed me.

    "Reliving The Classics"

    Love to listen to B. J. Harrison 's narrative., he can literally breathe life into a story. I vaguely remember this tale from my childhood; it's great to read/listen to the classics a second time around. Gives me a better understanding and appreciation of the story.

    "An Entertaining Short Story."

    Lots of excitement packed into a short story. The hero will surprise you in this one however.

    "Really well done"

    The narrator was very good. Not perfect, but sufficiently good that it didn't feel right to give less than 4 stars.

    Tale was great, of course.

    "Delightful Tales I've Heard Many Times"

    Though I've both read & heard the Arabian Nights tales numerous times during my life, they never fail to delight me, & I never grow bored with them. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing Ali Baba's story yet again. I usually prefer audio books to reading e-books or actual books these days because of health problems that make it difficult for me to read anything but short articles, emails, etc. (as long as I don't overdo it). Also, I've heard a number of books narrated by B.J. Harrison (including this one), and he is a first-rate reader. His reading is always animated, interesting, & expressive...never boring or monotonous...in all the books I've listened to in which B.J. is narrator, so far. I recommend his narrations unreservedly...and Arabian Nights tales especially!

    "Alright... I Guess "

    As far as folklore goes I guess it's alright. The story really does have a lot of stupid people behaving stupidly though. Narrator was fine.

    "so so"

    Both story and performance are of mediocre quality. However, it's a great price for an hour to kill if you are unfamiliar with the story.

    "Excellent Adventure"

    It is very refreshing to listen to the classic of long ago. The performance of the narrator is superb. I highly recommend purchasing the entire series of Classic Tales Podcast. You cannot go wrong.
