    "Excellent"

    This is a beautiful reading of Don Quixote by the wonderful Edward De Souza. The translation is excellent and preserves all the comic elements. The only drawback is that this is an abridged reading, but all the major comic vignettes are included. The story of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza at the inn and the bed-hopping in the middle of the night is hilarious. Please, please listen to this - you will not be disappointed if you like classic European literature.

    "I know why I never read this before"

    I know this is a classic, but I got tired of it pretty quickly. I'm glad I've "read" it now, but it wasn't as gripping and deep as all the references have led me to believe.

    "Great for Those of Us Who Wish We Had Read Quixote"

    I am glad that I listened to the abridged version of this classic. I had long heard and made references to this classic tale, but never knew the story itself. This version seems to nicely cover the gist of the story with enough elements for me to understand more clearly the ubiquitous references to Quixote in contemporary writing and dialog.
