    Story
    (232)

    The most influential work of the entire Spanish literary canon and a founding work of modern Western literature, Don Quixote is also one of the greatest works ever written. Hugely entertaining but also moving at times, this episodic novel is built on the fantasy life of one Alonso Quixano, who lives with his niece and housekeeper in La Mancha. Quixano, obsessed by tales of knight errantry, renames himself ‘Don Quixote’ and with his faithful servant Sancho Panza, goes on a series of quests.

    Colin says: "More than funny"
    "Definitive Quixote"

    Story
    Would you listen to Don Quixote again? Why?

    I'll certainly listen again. This is the best audiobook I have ever listened to. The performance by Roy McMillan is unbeatable. I cannot recommend this enough.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's Quixote. The best novel in the world.


    What does Roy McMillan bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    McMillan's performances of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza are pitch-perfect. He understands the characters from within. The host of minor characters is also excellently done. McMillan is a versatile and wonderfully entertaining reader.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Quixote encountering his beloved Dulcinea in the shape of a village wench stinking of garlic.
