Quixotic is a word that the dictionary defines as extravagantly chivalrous or romantic; visionary.... and that is a fitting definition, indeed, for this charming retelling of Don Quixote, the 17th-century Spanish classic by Miguel de Cervantes, now updated for the modern listener. The gallant and fragile Quixote will touch listeners, as will his faithful squire Sancho Panza and the tragically beautiful heroine of the gentle Don's chivalries, the fair Dulcinea.

Don Quixote is rightfully noted to ....move to pity rather than ridicule, and to tears as well as laughter. And herein lies its chief claim to greatness - that it seems to have been written not for one country nor for one age alone, but to give delight to all humankind.

    " I had to read this in Spanish years ago, so maybe my struggles took too much away, but I remeber not much happening. "

    " I read this to help prepare for my next trip to Spain. There were many quite funny parts, some slow parts, and lots of cool Spanish names. Overall I was entertained. The ending was interesting and worth the wait. "

    " This dude is nuts. he relentlessly jumps into fights and almost always gets his ass kicked. he doesn't even meet the lady he's so worried about. except for the beatings it sounds like a fun ride. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Owen | 4/23/2011

    " The world's first great satire, hundreds of years old, and still today most people are too ignorant to understand it, or to even bother trying. Make room on the literature shelves Cervantes, the Twilight Anniversary collectors hardcover needs more space. "

    " Yes, it's a classic, no I didn't like it. Perhaps TOO picaresque? "
