  1. Never a reader in my young years, the desire and effort didn t arrive until I was 60 I began reading Lee Child Jack Reacher books Mindless I suppose, but somehow reading those books fueled a fire in my deep down to read Came the time I started reading the classics Books I was supposed to have read in high school, but found a way to avoid Regrets come to mind, eh Anyway, reading the classics for the first time at this age has been a wonderful experience, one I m not capable of putting words to Th [...]


  2. What a gem I had never read Don Quixote and I have been surprised and delighted It is long, for sure, but the evolution of the characters and the subtlety of Cervantes ploys are so intriguing, so illuminating, that the length seemed almost welcome I was sad when I finished, as I would no longer have this companion to visit Don Quixote is actually two books When I completed the first book, I thought I was done The second book was written later and I thought there was little reason to read a secon [...]


  3. Before purchasing I checked internet reviews for the various translations of Don Quixote before selecting this one After reading some other books translated into English I decided which one you choose can make or break your enjoyment of the book This translation met my expectations.


  4. I first read the Don Quixote in college for an honors seminar Immediately, I was enraptured and enchanted by the adventures of the Knight of the Mournful Countenance and his companion Sancho Panza So much can be said, so perhaps a brief recollection will do the trick Years later, I taught the novel in its entirety, save for about 100 pages, to a group of public school 7th and 8th graders in Virginia It was a semester long elective I introduced it as a story about their lives, as it is a story ab [...]


  5. I m 350 pages in, and feel like I ve hit a wall The first 200 pages or so are amusing and fun, but now there are so many plot diversions, and the main character isn t even much part of the story now There are dozens of pages spent with one of the characters reading a story Maybe it will all tie together in the end, but based on reviews I ve read I m not expecting it It s almost like a book of short stories where one story isn t related to the other It s like hearing your grandpa intending to tel [...]


  6. I ve known of Don Quixote since elementary school but never read the full story When I came across a list of the greatest books ever written and found that it appeared on judges list than, I believe, any other, I decided to do my duty and read it I m glad I did At first not sure if I thought it deserved its place in history I stayed with the two on their journey And before long the depth of Quixote s character became clearer and the bizarre wanderings seemed to me to be the stage settings for hi [...]


  7. At almost a thousand pages of small type, this book is no lightweight undertaking literally This book was my end of year bridge, spanning three months of fairly consistent and persistent effort.However, despite its heft it is a romp a tender exploration of sanity, happiness, and all that makes one human loyalty, respectfulness, truthfulness, compassion Senor Quixote s exploits are famous, and rightly so But what the cartoonish depictions fail to capture is the gentlemanly gentle ness of his char [...]


  8. Just getting back into Quixote which I ve tried to delve into numerous times then just somehow vegged out Couldn t sustain it This translation has kept my interest which is an odd statement to make given the book s perpetual rating as the world s great novel Must be me


  9. So what is there to say about the first modern novel Well, like most people, I had a rough idea of the character of Quixote and of his relationship to Panza before having set eyes on a copy of the book Picasso s silhouette drawing on the cover is recognisable before the title.From conversations with Spaniards I also have a grasp of their relaxed familiarity with this book, a staple of the Iberian vernacular, contemporary with Shakespeare when he laid the foundations of modern English It s notewo [...]


  10. Excellent translation of this novel It s taken 35 years and many false starts, plus a pandemic, for me to read Don Quixote from start to finish, and I haven t been disappointed Despite being over 400 years old, this history still raises a smile, inspires empathy and affection, particularly for Sancho Panza, and is an incredible work, well worth the effort This translation is superb, a true Labour of love.
