Don Quixote

by Miguel Cervantes

Penguin Books Ltd | January 30, 2003 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Don Quixote is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading romances of chivalry that he determines to become a knight errant and pursue bold adventures, accompanied by his squire, the cunning Sancho Panza. As they roam the world together, the aging Quixote's fancy leads them wildly astray. At the same time the relationship between the two men grows in fascinating subtlety. Often considered to be the first modern novel, Don Quixote is a wonderful burlesque of the popular literature its disordered protagonist is obsessed with.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A scholar's read. Because this book was rated by literary aficionados from around the world as the best novel ever, I persevered through it. Sometimes hilarious and mostly entertaining it still requires a great deal of intellectual effort to put oneself in the time and place of the author to understand the humor and mores of the day. I found the first part (book) more enjoyable than the second. The copious footnotes were just a distraction for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Don Quixote Miguel De Cervantes Saavedra's classic novel recalling the story of Don Quixote, a madman who believes he is a knight, and his servant Sancho. The two of them lead onto many adventures, including the famous attacking of the wind-mills, making this story a classic in today's literature. I'd recommend this book for anyone who likes adventure, and comedy.
