         I have read over 10,000 books, gotten a few useless college degrees and have to say many of the books sucked but this is not one of them.  This is by far one of the best books ever.  Ender's game is pretty good too and so is catcher in the rye.

       If you read this book and you do not like it you should never read another book and you should be shot.  It means you really are useless and have no inclination for the arts.  in other words you suck balls.

       Don Quixote goes mad from reading too many books about knights and then goes on an adventure with Sancho.  Great book.  Awesome.  a must read.  You won't be able to put it down. 

       They should make a movie of this book starring johnny depp. Read this book.

         I personally did not care for this book. I appreciate thet fact that other reviewers did, however, as we all have our own tastes. I found it to be rambling, somewhat hard to follow and the main character extremely long-winded. I could not paint a clear mental picture of the time, place, and persons described, which always makes a book less interesting. As with any book though, I recommend you give it a try if you can buy it used and cheap.

         I never thought I would read any book about knights and squires, but, from the first chapter I could not let the book go. This is not mystery book in which  I don't have to keep track of the characters.The author centres the action on the Don and his squire, Sancho Panza. Chapter by chapter, the description is vast and detailed about the setting, furthermore, how well these 2 characters are developed. While the Don is fanciful and imagines many sightings, his famous being the windmills, the squire stays very practical, insightful and realistic to human nature. There are scenes that make one cry, other scenes that make one laugh. The author carries the reader through many adventures, talks about the Don's lady-love. This is not boring reading. The squire is my favourite character, and is quite the character at that. Each chapter, titled, is an entity in itself.  This would be my 'desert island', book, most worthwhile for a second read.

       I'll start off by saying that I'm 21 years old and my joy of reading started over a year ago when I read 1984 on my own time. I started reading what I should have been reading in highschool, and I realized how great those books really are! I picked up Don Quixote because I had read that it was one of the greatest books of all time. My initial fear that it was too long and I would become invested half-way into reading it. The copy I read was wonderfully translated and I read the 900+ pages in less than a week. I was inspired by these characters and felt like I was living through them while reading. Great read, don't let your misconceptions keep you from keeping up this classis.
