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.

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!

    "Not so Great"
    What disappointed you about Don Quijote de la Mancha [Don Quixote]?

    I don't speak spanish....it's not overly clear that it was in a different language.


    Has Don Quijote de la Mancha [Don Quixote] turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, but I will be more careful.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Full Cast’s performances?

    Yes I do enjoy a full cast performance.

    "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.

    "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.
