You, my GR Friends and Readers must be wondering what is this cheese doing at the head of the review And I, the fictitious Kalliope, invite you to cut a slice and help yourself and savour the flavours of Manchego cheese Buts since you can t grab and eat the one displayed on your screen, then I suggest you take a substitute, some Edam, or Cheddar, or any other you have in your fridge, and then think and imagine that you are taking cheese from La Mancha, from the land of Don Quijote DQ For accordi [...]

He tenido que leer este libro para la c tedra de Literatura Cl sica y la verdad no pens que esta obra fuera tan entretenida, la he pasado tan bien que me he re do de todas las historias que ten a el Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha con su fiel escudero Sancho Panza Me re hasta llorar con la historia del ventero y la moza asturiana y como Don Quijote pensaba que era un castillo encantado, tambi n cuando Sancho Panza se olvida de la carta y empieza a recitarla de memoria Ha sido una lect [...]
Adorably old fashioned and old style baroque comedy, yet I sense traces of Modernism beneath the surface, especialy in how our hero s madness somehow isn t confining him from interacting with people I prefered to linger on the fun and on the Chivalry though, on the endless wonderful sub plots of endless characters Starting Book II imediately.
Ovo sam uvao Nekako ne elim da pro itam sve klasike ta u itati slede ih 40 godina Nadao sam se da Servantes mo e da stane uz rame Igou, Tolstoju, Dostojevskom, Andri u, kao jedan od mojih omiljenih klasi nih autora.Pro itao sam prvu knjigu Nije uspeo Jasno mi je da su pro la 4 veka od izlaska knjige, ali ta god trudili ljubitelji Servantesa, Don Kihot je ipak ostario mnogo vi e od nekih drugih klasika Humor, koji bi trebao da bude njegova ja a strana, na kraju je manje vi e situacijski humor, a [...]
It s hard to classify and to explain what this book is about In all honesty, one could describe the plot basic points, and still not get a grasp of how complete this book is in every sense It has helped me to discover a love for this kind of reality, standing in the thin line between dream in reality, and the problems of knowledge among many other things One of the first books of this style I have had the pleasure of reading was Fran ois Rabelais, Pantagruel which for sure have some points in co [...]

Duh There s something to laugh at or lament on every page of Volume I The interpolated novels require patience, and the captive s story in particular seemed sluggish, but this is mostly because they are outshined by every moment spent with Don Quixote and Sancho Beware enchanters and blankets On to Part II, which I m told is even better.
I understand that it has its place among historic literary devices and I respect it for that With that being said, it would have been better at half its length I got the point early on and at some point the theme repetition became tedious.
Primeiro volume conclu do Dei muitas risadas, mas depois fui ficando com uma certa pena das loucuras de Dom Quixotetadinho Cl ssico excelente at aqui, mas prefiro deixar para opinar melhor quando terminar o segundo volume
Don Quixote is the world s best book say the world s top authors
Don Quichotte, c est avant tout une guerre litt raire que Cervant s entreprend en faveur d une litt rature plus r aliste et originale contre les romans de chevalerie qui sont, d une part, pleins de r ve et de magie, et d autre part, une r p tition l infini autour d un m me th me jusqu la saturation L absurdit et le ridicule de l id al chevaleresque seront d abord expos s par le biais du personnage de Don Quichotte, ce petit provincial qui les romans de chevalerie ont tourn l esprit un tel point [...]
Weighing in at just over that of a VW Beetle, I took my time picking this up, but what a relevation An outstanding read, full of the most incredible characters and adventures.Absolutely loved it.
This is the original book from 1605 450 pages The GR blurb says Don Quixote has become so entranced by reading chivalric romances, that he determines to become a knight errant himself In the company of his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, his exploits blossom in all sorts of wonderful ways While Quixote s fancy often leads him astray he tilts at windmills, imagining them to be giants Sancho acquires cunning and a certain sagacity Sane madman and wise fool, they roam the world together, and togethe [...]

Don quijote de la mancha es una obra literaria clasica que nos lleva a un mundo creado por un hombre que se envolvio en sus fantasias Detras de la locura mentalmente hablando , don quijote nos lleva a la realidad de cualquier amante de la lectura en donde llegas a un punto donde ya no eres tu mismo sino las obras que has leido.Quizas De cervantes creo la obra como parodia pero tomo un significado mucho mas profundo para mi

Magical realism avant la lettre or things are how we want to see them, until we come across a Sancho Panza that does a reality check for us.
I CAN T BELIEVE I FINALLY DID IT I m so PROUD OF MYSELF granted it s only the first part but I FUCKING READ DON QUIJOTE andGASPI LIKED IT This is all the review How could I review such a book
Don Quixote the story of an average nobleman who believes, outside of sanity, that he is to become a knight at a time where Spain, all of Europe probably, no longer had knights, and his books on chivalry and legendary knights were to blame Despite the efforts of the cleric, barber, housemaid, and his niece, Alonso Quijano or Quesada, or Quijada changed his name to Don Quixote, took on his grandfather s armor, mounted his not so impressive steed Rocinante, got himself knighted in an inn which he [...]
