Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic status #plumreview Anytime a main character from any for of art can worm it's way into official word-hood (definitely not a word, oh the irony) with word quixotic having it's obvious connection to the titular hero. All within the creation of the modern novel. Hilarious and insightful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Graphic Adaptation Reason for Reading: I am quickly becoming a fan of this publisher, and I love well-done graphic retellings of classics. I have never read the original Don Quixote, though I intend to one day. I have, however, read a very old children's retelling from the late 1880s by, I believe, Alfred J. Church. The story I read here in the graphic novel was identical to the one I had previously read before. From these adaptations I presume I am just missing some of the more bawdy aspects of the story, which are certainly hinted at in this adaptation. A wonderful, funny story that would make a fantastic introduction to the story of Don Quixote. As seems the pattern with Campfire's Classic series the book starts with a brief biography of Cervantes then gives us a main character's page before staring in with the story. The illustration is very nicely done showing us the 1500s way of life and when Quixote, in his madness, imagines he is in the grand old days of chivalry, there is a wavy line and a lightening in the colour to show us Quixote's distorted view of the same scenes as he imagines "common" women as ladies and windmills as giants. I really enjoyed this one! Am also looking forward to my next Campfire graphic read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasant Surprise! I had heard of this book many, many years ago but never considered it a read for myself. i recently found an old student copy in some boxes during a move and just started reading. i found myself captivated! i immediately ordered this large, hardcover edition (I prefer hardcover for my library display) and have been enjoying it immensely. This a very witty, comedic story of adventure. this particular translation is very readable with good footnotes where required. don quixote is so, so funny and he has a wonderful support character in sancho, his loyal sidekick who has his fair share of witty interjections. all of the characters, and there are many, add their own personal flavor as they relate their own stories of adventure..the characters are all quite serious quixote is quite serious while trying to live out his life as a knight errant, striving to follow the rules of chivalry. i highly recommend this book, this translation in particular, if you are one who likes wit and humor and doesn`t mind a long, long read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Translation! Don Quixote de la Mancha is a great stroy in itself but many cannot read the original story because it is in Spanish. But this translation by Edith Grossman really captures the essence of the original. Love this book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the time! This book may be intimidating, but you'd be surprised how accessible it is! This is a wonderful translation that's very easy to read. Hilarious, and completely worth the time you put into reading it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the time The casual reader might be intimidated by a) Don Quixote's reputation as a classic and b) its sheer size. Both of these translage as boring to most people. But Don Quixote is worth the effort. Far from a stuffy old work, the novel creates many of the modern conventions of self-conscious narrative and the ironic anti-hero. This translation makes the prose sound fresh without taking away from Cervantes' style. Anyone who likes novels that envelope the reader in their world will appreciate Don Quixotte.
