“Don Quixote is the world's best book say the world's top authors.” The Guardian

"If there is one novel you should read before you die, it is Don Quixote" Ben Okri

“Don Quixote is a funny book. I mean laugh out loud funny. Sometimes at work I would unplug my iPod and read out a scene . . . It is funny ironic, funny slapstick, funny base, funny absurd.” Drew Gummerson

“So the best thing to say up front, perhaps, is get hold of Don Quixote and make time for it. It will be worth the television sitcoms you skip, the thirty or so quiet evenings you spend on it . . . But the book quite staggered me with its charm, beauty, and profundity. Once you enter (or re-enter) its expansive, ruminative, deeply nourishing world, the literary equivalent of eating "slow food," it's hard not to become a bit of a bore about how stupendous it is.” Terry Castle, The Atlantic

“I practically did a dance when I read this. It was wonderful. So many different characters drifted through this book and I became attached to all of them. I felt like something had been taken away from me when I finished.” 1001 Books you must read before you die

“Alonso Quixada, a retired gentleman of La Mancha, his mind addled through overconsumption of chivalric romances, dons a home-made helmet and rusty armour, saddles up his hack Rocinante, recruits a squire in the person of Sancho Panza (a local labourer lured by the promise of his own island to govern) and sets out as a knight-errant to perform feats of bravery in honour of his (supposed) lady, Dulcinea.” Adam Newey, The Guardian

DON QUIXOTE is Cervantes’s original, epic, and hilarious masterpiece in a specially produced edition. This is one of the best and most accessible English translations of the classic text. Packed full of beautiful illustrations and formatted for Kindle.
