    " This is a classic for a reason. I'm glad I took the time to read it. Seriously read it if you haven't. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Apostolos | 2/9/2014

    " Enjoyable characters in this book, but the writing was a bit hard to get into for me. As a result, only read about 1/6 of the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gillian | 1/29/2014

    " All in all, I think I liked it. It was a long slog and the 900 pages are basically one joke but Part II was more entertaining and had more amusing scenarios with less pontificating. I am happy to have read it and equally happy to be finished. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 John Spillane | 1/25/2014

    " A scathing review can be expected; right now I'm collapsed on the finish line. What waste of air. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt Morris | 1/11/2014

    " If you never read Don Quixote, stop what you're doing & start reading. It's better than you might imagine, even if you can imagine quite a lot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lukam | 11/22/2013

    " One of the greatest renditions of human condition put into paper, a universal literary masterpiece almost unequalled. "

    " a book about a donkey named o'tee... "

    " maybe it's better in Spanish? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Justin Loke | 10/28/2013

    " Don't believe Harold Bloom about Edith Grossman's translation, Penguin's edition by John Rutherford, with intro by Roberto Gonzalez Echevarria is much better. I should have judged the translation by its book cover. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ivan Soto | 10/26/2013

    " This is one of the most fun books I've ever read and that's a lot to say for a book published in the early years of the 1600's! It's a classic and now I know why. I laughed out loud so many times! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miss.terri | 1/15/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claudia Iglesias | 11/19/2011

    " One of my all time favourite books, a definitely must read. Once you get involved in the tone and rythm of the language you will laugh and cry and live vicariously through Don Quijote, one of the greaters characters in world literature. You must definitely meet him. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 S. | 6/2/2011

    " The Smollett translation is so wonderful, like Beaudelaire's Poe, that this read is particularly good. I just love Smollett. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lee Kerr | 2/23/2010

    " I've enjoyed abridged versions and Film/TV/Play versionjs but I just couldn't get into the book and didn't finish it. I plan to try again one day "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott Beck | 9/13/2009

    " I found it a difficult read but still remember various scenes even 5 years later. Guess there's a good reason they call it a classic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wm B | 6/29/2008

    " This is a funny, enjoyed the wit and humor of the 1600's in Spain, thanks to audible books, I don't think I would have been patient enough to read through the translation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Holly | 9/16/2007

    " I just couldn't really get into this book. Most people I talk to about it loved it so much and even reference it occasionally. I'm wondering if I missed something... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean | 8/11/2007

    " A little dry at times, but generally entertaining. Once I got accustomed to the writing, I didn't want it to end. "

About the Author

Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547–1616), novelist, playwright, and poet, was born in Spain of an ancient but impoverished family. After studying in Madrid, he became a soldier and was wounded in battle. He was taken by pirates in 1575, put in prison at Algiers, and was ransomed five years later. He spent the remainder of his life struggling to earn a livelihood from literature and humble government employment. His first attempt at fiction was a pastoral novel, La Galatea (1585), which was followed by his masterpiece, The Adventures of Don Quixote de la Mancha (1605).
