Review: Don Quixote

Posted on Updated on

Don QuixoteBook Review
4 out of 5 stars to Don Quixote, written around 1605 by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra. A few interesting facts: (1) The book was originally written in Spanish, (2) I read an English translation as when I attempted to read the Spanish, between the changes in language over 400 years and my own limitations of the language at the time I read it, (3) this is considered one of the first “modern” novels and (4) all the great writers in the 19th century looked to this novel and author as the person whose footsteps they should be following in… that’s how good it was and how famous it was years ago. So many forget about it now, think of it as just some non-American book, a romance story or a play or film they watched. WRONG! It started as a great Spanish novel — I’m only being funny with my little attitude here — that influenced the entire world. If you haven’t read it, you should definitely give it a chance. From romance to solid friendships, to travels and cultural experiences, this book tells of life’s greatest pleasures and all the emotions that come with it.

    I love this book, I intend to read the Spanish version, but I’m improving the language before I take the risk.

    Great text, congratulations!
