(4.8 stars; 121 reviews)

Don Quixote is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. Published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published.... The story follows the adventures of a hidalgo named Mr. Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs, and bring justice to the world, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthy wit in dealing with Don Quixote's rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood. Don Quixote, in the first part of the book, does not see the world for what it is and prefers to imagine that he is living out a knightly story. Throughout the novel, Cervantes uses such literary techniques as realism, metatheatre, and intertextuality. It had a major influence on the literary community, as evidenced by direct references in Alexandre Dumas' The Three Musketeers (1844), Mark Twain's Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1884) and Edmond Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (1897), as well as the word "quixotic" and the epithet "Lothario." Arthur Schopenhauer cited Don Quixote as one of the four greatest novels ever written, along with Tristram Shandy, La Nouvelle Héloïse and Wilhelm Meister. - Summary by Wikipedia (19 hr 34 min)

I had no idea what it was going to be about but had just seen so many references that I had to read it. Lots of fun


(5 stars)

An excellent reading of a hugely influential book. Very entertaining, despite it being a translation, which Don Quizote himself describes as 'looking at the back side of a tapestry- you can see the pattern but very little of the colour ir depth', and despite it being 350,000 words long if you count both books. A very even and clear reading throughout. Highly recommended.

Yes!

My 14-year-old listened to both entire volumes. She loved them! "One of the least read of one of the greatest classics." I'm not sure who said that, but it was very true. However, my daughter says, "While it was extremely entertaining, it is not very appropriate. There is too much talk of defacing women's honor."

Great reader
