5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny, 29 Aug 2010
This review is from: Don Quixote (Penguin Classics) (Paperback)
I bought this book a few years ago as I thought I OUGHT to read it. It sat on the bookshelf gathering dust for a long time and every few months I'd look at it, decide I wasn't in the mood for wading through dry, dull 16th century Spanish literature and I'd read something else. Then I booked a holiday to Spain so decided I HAD to read it and...what a pleasant surprise!

The book is laugh out loud funny! I'm sure everyone knows the story so I won't go into that but the absurd situations that our Don gets himself and Sancho into as a result of his unerring belief that knight errantry is needed in the world are hilarious. I can't stress enough that this book is not difficult to read, dry or dull in any way and the writing is so fresh that it's hard to believe it was written 400 years ago.

Definitely one to put on your wish list.
