Perfect 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 wish I had Audible in high school!

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.

Excelente libro, pero muchos errores de lectura.

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.

accent of reader does not match the story

A classic which I wanted to "listen to". However, the performance does not have a Spanish accent.

es una MUY BUENA interpretación.

tiene diferentes intonaciones para los distintos personajes. No puedo más imaginar otra voz para Sancho Panza o para el ingenioso hidalgo. El libro es de lo más recomendable. Más allá de una rica y graciosa historia podrás aprender sobre la Europa de los Moros, españa, costumbres, la lengua y relaciones sociales en general.

Sigue siendo todo un clásico

Con todo y el español antiguo en que fue escrito, así como la época en que se volvió famoso y que desde entonces probablemente sigue siendo considerado uno de los mejores libros de la lengua española, no se puede negar lo entretenido que es y seguramente seguirá siendo considerado un clásico por muchos años más.

Un Quijote sudamericano

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Si es sudamericano si, personalmente no me puedo acostumbrar al acento.

What three words best describe Alejandro Magnone’s voice?

Monotona y sin la entonación que pienso requiere la obra. Si eres español se te hace poco creíble y por lo tanto difícil meterte en la historia. Un poco como los doblajes mejicanos de películas, no tanto, pero la misma sensación.

A great book clearly read

Would you consider the audio edition of Don Quijote de la Mancha Tomo I [Don Quixote, Part I] to be better than the print version?

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.

What did you like best about this story?

The story is at times funny, philosophical, slapstick and adventurous.

What about Alejandro Magnone’s performance did you like?

Alejandro Magnone reads very clearly and I understood him easily.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

It's too long to listen to in one go, but the story lends itself to breaks quite well.

Any additional comments?

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.
