Publisher's Summary

A collection of stories about the greedy. Humorous and satirical, it is the best example of Al-Jahiz' prose style. It is an insightful study of human psychology. Jahiz ridicules schoolmasters, beggars, singers and scribes for their greedy behavior. Many of the stories continue to be reprinted in magazines throughout the Arabic-speaking world. The book is considered one of the best works of Al Jahiz.
Please note: This audiobook is in Arabic.

Good narration and content as an Arabic-learner

Would you consider the audio edition of Mukhtarat Men Ketab Al Bukhala to be better than the print version?

As a learner of the Arabic language, i found this audiobook a great way to expand my vocabulary and improve my listening ear in Arabic. I enjoyed hearing a story narrated at a conversational speed (far more natural than most listening exercises in Arabic textbooks). I hope more audiobooks will be published both in MSA and colloquial dialects so native and non-native speakers of Arabic can listen and benefit from them.
