More than just tilting at windmills,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Don Quixote (Kindle Edition)
I read this because I was fed up with not knowing anything about this book other than the tilting at windmills bit. The reason is that this is pretty much all there is for quite some time into the book, so apart from the Novel within a novel" there is very little to say for much of the first book. The second book is much more involved, although you feel that Cervantes is laughing at himself and his contemporaries a lot more than previously. Sancho Panza also comes to the fore much more in the second book, and he has some excellent adventures of his own which added to the fun.
OK, it is long and the humour is both Spanish and four hundred years old, but you can see that there is much that was funnier then and there than it is here and now. If you are discouraged by the length and the material, persevere, because you will be rewarded in the end.
