Publisher's Summary

Publicada su primera parte con el título de El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha a comienzos de 1605, es una de las obras más destacadas de la literatura española y la literatura universal, y una de las más traducidas. En 1615 aparecería la segunda parte del Quijote de Cervantes con el título de El ingenioso caballero don Quijote de la Mancha.Don Quijote fue la primera obra genuinamente desmitificadora de la tradición caballeresca y cortés, por el tratamiento burlesco que da a la misma. Representa la primera obra literaria que se puede clasificar como novela moderna y también la primera novela polifónica, y como tal, ejerció un influjo abrumador en toda la narrativa europea posterior. En el año 2002 y a petición del Norwegian Book Club se realizó una lista con las mejores obras literarias de la historia. Ésta sería realizada con las votaciones de 100 grandes escritores de 54 nacionalidades distintas, apareciendo las obras en estricto orden alfabético, para que no prevaleciese ninguna obra sobre otra, pero por unanimidad se hizo una excepción con "Don Quixote" que encabezó la lista siendo citada como "el mejor trabajo literario jamás escrito".

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

    "Mala producción"

    La historia es un clásico, la narradora excelente, sin embargo la grabación adolece de cuidado, muchas repeticiones a lo largo de la hiatoria, pero el capitulo 99 es insufrible, se insertó crudo, sin haberlo revisado ni editado

    "El audio no está editado"

    En la mayoría de los capítulos puede escucharse a la narradora repitiendo algún enunciado o equivocándose de palabra. Esto no es culpa de la narradora, por supuesto. Es culpa de quien haya tenido que revisar/editar el audio. En uno de los capítulos, la narradora lee TODO al menos nos veces e incluso se le puede escuchar aclarándose la garganta o cambiando de hoja. Esto fue muy molesto y es una pena porque la narradora es muy buena, y no se diga la historia.

    "El libro más importante y extraordinario en Español"

    Con justificada razón este es el libro fundamental de la literatura en edpañol. Es incomparable e imperdible
    El relato y lectura son buenos, pero en el capítulo 99 hay errores de edicion, repeticiones y mal trabajo de edicion que deberían corregir

    Story
    "Probablemente una lectura intuitiva del nacimiento de la modernidad"

    Siempre se ha leído en la historia de la humanidad occidental a Descartes como el iniciador de la modernidad. Pero, tal como Kundera lo expresa, puede leerse a travéz de Quijote.

    De forma magistral Cervantes narra las aventuras del Quijote (acompañado de Sancho) expresando el choque de dos temporalidades, una que inicia (el mundo moderno) y otra que se extingue (la antigüedad). Esto lo muestra Cervantes a lo largo de la obra en la aparente locura del Quijote y la comprensión habitual de los ciudadanos de la época.

    Una obra magistral!

    Story
    "Speed Reading is no way to listen to Don Q"
    What would have made Don Quijote de la Mancha better?

    A proper narration of the work would have made all the difference. The recording seems to have been compressed, using audio manipulation software. I'm not an expert in these matters, but I bet that is what they have done. The reading begins in a wonderful way, but soon the sentences begin to rush by, without pause. And, this is not a non native speaker complaining about the rapidity with which native speakers are conversing. I have listened, with delight, to many audio books in Spanish. This is one is different. It is like listening to a radio pitch-man as he/she speed-reads a phone book. The presentation is robot like. All passion, drama, emotion has been wrung out, leaving only words and story line. I found this to be so irritating that I finally tossed it, after listening to only 1/4 of the book. So sad! narrator does have a nice voice. She does speak very clearly. She could have been great, if only....


    How could the performance have been better?

    A proper reading.


    Any additional comments?

    If you really love this story and want it in audio format, this is NOT the one.

    "Su hombre lo precede."

    De buen libro no se pueden dar más opinions que las que ya se han dado desde la fecha de su publication. El audio we puede mejorar.

    "Good story not good narrated"

    I love the story but the narrator doesn't make it great. It was good and worth it

    "La mejor aventura que pluma dejo en papel!"

    Nada mejor que decir de la novela. La narrador, a mi parecer, hablaba muy rapida. La producción pudo haber sido mejor; véase capitulos 58 al 61 de la segunda parte.

    "A timeless classic!"
    Where does Don Quijote de la Mancha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved listening to Quijote as opposed to reading, the Spanish words were pronounced beautifully


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Don Quijote de la Mancha?

    I just love the character overall, viva Quijote!


    Have you listened to any of Aurora de la Iglesia del Prado’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I really loved her voice


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I found it very endearing
