    Story

    Don Quixote, the world's first novel and by far the best-known book in Spanish literature, was originally intended by Cervantes as a satire on traditional popular ballads, yet he also parodied the romances of chivalry. By happy coincidence he produced one of the most entertaining adventure stories of all time and, in Don Quixote and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, two of the greatest characters in fiction.

    James says: "Excellent"
    "Entertaining but in archaic language"
    Overall

    The narrator does a good job presenting this classic by Cervantes but the translation is quite archaic so that at times you really have to listen closely to get what the narrator is saying. This would have been much better if they had used a modern translation. That said, this is a great novel. It is a "best seller" that has kept its reputation for centuries and is well worth the effort to read (or listen to) in its entirety.
