Summary

The first European novel, and one of the greatest, is a marvelously comic study of delusion and its consequences: Don Quixote, the old gentleman of La Mancha, takes to the road in search of adventure and remains undaunted in the face of repeated disaster.

Excellent

This is a beautiful reading of Don Quixote by the wonderful Edward De Souza. The translation is excellent and preserves all the comic elements. The only drawback is that this is an abridged reading, but all the major comic vignettes are included. The story of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza at the inn and the bed-hopping in the middle of the night is hilarious. Please, please listen to this - you will not be disappointed if you like classic European literature.

I know why I never read this before

I know this is a classic, but I got tired of it pretty quickly. I'm glad I've "read" it now, but it wasn't as gripping and deep as all the references have led me to believe.
