Audible Editor Reviews

FonoLibro, the leading Spanish-language audiobook producer in the Americas, presents a dramatization of Miguel Cervantes’ masterpiece, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha, with original music and sound effects, and featuring notable actors from Latin American radio and television. Cervantes’ romantic description of the travels and adventures of the addle-brained Alonso Quijano and his "squire" Sancho Panza is not just the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon, but continues generation after generation to be a joyful "chivalric" experience.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Publisher's Summary

FonoLibro, el líder en audiolibros en español, celebra los 400 años de la obra mas importante y universal de nuestra lengua Las Aventuras del Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quijote de La Mancha, mas conocida por el nombre abreviado de Don Quijote. Miguel de Cervantes de Saavedra, su autor, relata en esta magna novela las fabulosas aventuras de un "caballero andante" y su escudero, el bonachón y pícaro "Sancho Panza", al recorrer los caminos de España para "deshacer entuertos", creando una saga que ha sido dibujada en todas las formas y medios del arte y la narrativa de todos los tiempos. "Don Quijote", junto con La Biblia, es quizás una de las obras humanas que se ha traducido a mayor numero de idiomas. Esta historia inmortal enriqueció el lenguaje, creo personajes y arquetipos inolvidables y exalto por siempre el espíritu humano. Haciendo honor a esta herencia, FonoLibro ha dramatizado la historia con las mejores voces de nuestro idioma. Este audiolibro revive, en una fecha histórica, las peripecias y hazanas de Don Quijote y Sancho Panza de una manera entretenida y a un nivel de producción que lo hará figurar de manera destacada en su hogar, para disfrute de toda su familia.

What the Critics Say

"The well paused, highly dramatic narrations by Spain's Juan Manuel Montesinos, and by a diverse cast of qualified Latin American and Spanish readers, bring Sancho and Don Quixote's adventures to life, allowing listeners to follow the intricate and sometimes complex series of events and stories-within-stories of this amazing novel. Orlando Cuevas's rendering of Sancho stands out, as it evokes the humility, humor, and leisurely attitude of the character, just as Don Quixote's voice reflects the eloquence and lucidity amidst the folly that define this famous figure."

    "Wonderfully read!"

    This is a marvelous book, read with seductive and marvelous expression. Please, please, please make more books like this available in Spanish. It's a world of sounds, delights, and colors, that brings the intelligence, the heart and the emotions into pleasant mixture.
    As someone who spends a lot of time in Chile, this classical Spanish accent is pure music! More. More. More, Please!

    Impressive the accent and intonation are perfect

    "ABRIDGED!!!!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Having the full story


    What was most disappointing about Miguel de Cervantes’s story?

    It is a classic of Hispanic literature and for good reason. Cervantes is the Spanish equivalent of Shakespeare.

    "a veces es difícil de escuchar"

    hay algunos momentos en los que la voz de los narradores sube mucho y luego baja mucho, por lo tanto, debe moderar frecuentemente el volumen

    In fact it isn't James. It's Nancy, wife to James, who shares an Amazon account!

    "Brilliant, except if you thought it was in English"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have wanted to read this for years and was looking forward to listening. I feel like an idiot for not noticing it isn't in translation and gutted because the narrator has such a beautiful voice. I can't return it so I suppose I'm going to have to learn Spanish.
