Este gran libro fue publicado por primera vez hace más de 400 años, y Oyelo.com lo invita a disfrutar de la obra más grande de Miguel de Cervantes. Es una obra que sigue cautivando a la gente con las proezas de Don Quijote y las sinrazones de Sancho Panza. Ésta obra ha inspirado a grandes personajes como al Che Guevara por la gran búsqueda de ideales a los que nuestro héroe, Don Quijote, se esfuerza por alcanzar.
Esta obra lo hará reír con Sancho Panza, soñar con Dulcinea, y tratar de desfacer los entuertos de Don Quijote.

This is a wonderful recording of Don Quijote. The reader has a beautiful voice that makes the narrative come alive. I can easily grasp what Cervantes intended in the way of comedy, satire, and pathos. I recommend this recording for Spanish speakers and for those whose grasp of Spanish is good enough to understand Cervantes' written word. In fact, this recording would work perfectly for those wishing to follow along with the text.
I first read this book more than 20 years ago and unfortunately, I wasn't ready for it. I rarely read any fiction these days and found myself looking for some leisure reading for a change, and in my native language (also for a change). I decided to give the Quijote a try. Before I knew it, I found myself hooked to the story and, oh my, do I love this book! I enjoyed the narration, the story, the characters, everything. In between listening sessions, I was catching up on the historical Cervantes and the history of Spain in the 16th and 17th Centuries. This book is truly a must-read for all. There are minor errors that should have been corrected in editing but I am just nitpicking. I wish Audible brings in more Spanish classics.
Essential, unmissable and comic
I love this book because, first of all, it's a classic. The book has comic moments and serious moments. Allows the reader to make an analysis on the boundaries between sanity and madness.
Everthing. I think he gave "life" to the story, and speak spanish very clear, what allows to me understand the most part of the story.
I don't know.
I thought this book should be in audible's essencial list.
Me hubiera gustado que los diez errores de lectura del tipo "repito" hubieran sido eliminados con un buen trabajo de edición; también escuché muchos errores de entonación durante la lectura.
I work a lot. I can listen to books while I work. My new hobby. Thank God I can multi-task!
How witty the story really is. And the narrator has a great domain of our language and I loved his pronunciation
His time at the Sierra
How well he sounded.
Well, him of course, but greatly enjoyed the story of the two friends and their love game with a tragic result
It seemed as if the story ended in this volume. Not sure what volume II contains so I am a bit apprehensive until I checked in print first

If you really want to listen take 5 cups of coffee before start... Don Quijote is a very good book, but it's already difficult by reading it, listening it I thought it would be better, well, I was wrong, took me a long time to finish and I slept through a lot of times...
"A great book clearly read"
This reading of Don Quijote de la Mancha is helpful to those who don't have time to sit down and read the print version but who can listen while doing other things.
The story is at times funny, philosophical, slapstick and adventurous.
Alejandro Magnone reads very clearly and I understood him easily.
It's too long to listen to in one go, but the story lends itself to breaks quite well.
I will be downloading volume two.
"An essential, not so well read"
Great book, average production. A bit of editing wouldn't hurt to remove things like, I'll repeat... Clear and quite neutral spanish (Argentinean I presume) for me, a native castellan spanish speaker.
