    1. This is without question one of the most amazing and memorable books I've ever read. An utterly extraordinary piece of writing. I'm gutted that not every reviewer has given it the full five stars, because anyone who likes reading and getting utterly lost in a book should take this challenge on. I won't deny, it's not a 'page turner' in the traditional sense of the phrase, indeed quite the opposite. It took me a long time to read because I could usually only take on half a dozen pages at a time; [...]

    2. One of the great Australian authors, O'Neill's Scherazade is a tour de force of imagination and literary pyrotechniques. Reminiscent of Umberto Eco's Name of the Rose, it combines the same serious literary consciousness with a rollicking good yarn populated with a delightfully diverse group of characters. Few other books do as fine a job of evoking another place and time so vividly. I has no equal in that regard, except, perhaps, Patrick Suskind's brilliant Perfume: my other favourite historical [...]

    3. This is an extremely vividly written tale which brings to life the exotic richness of the Arabian Nights in an historical tale which takes the fictional character of Scheherazade, beauty and raconteur, and images her life some years after the events in the famous classic. A terrific cast of characters and a thoroughly engaging plot ensure that this tome entertains from beginning to surprising end. Superb prose, masterful storytelling, one of my favorite books and O'Neil's best (with perhaps the [...]

    4. I really enjoyed reading this book but found the ending a bit fantastical in a disappointing way. Perhaps I missed some larger meaning? Don't know. Up until the end section, however, I thought it was a great read! Really interesting setting/story, set in ninth-century Baghdad. I'd still recommend it.

    5. this book perplexed me - some of it is very beautiful, witty and amazing. There is quite a bit of irony in some of it - maybe the authors intention. Not really what i expected.
