Don Quixote

by John Ormsby, Miguel de Cervantes

The Floating Press | September 26, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Don Quixote is rated 4 out of 5 by 2.
Brimming with romance and adventure, Miguel de Cervantes Don Quixote is considered by many to be the greatest work in the Spanish literary canon. Both humane and humorous, the two volume oeuvre centres on the adventures of the self-styled knight errant Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, Quixote's credulous and chubby squire. Together the unlikely pair of heroes bumble their way from one bizarre adventure to another fueled in their quests by Quixote's histrionic world view and Sancho's, who in conjunction with Quixote provides the spark for endlessly bizarre discussions in which Quixote's heightened, insane conception of the world is brought crashing to earth by Sancho's common sense.

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.
