Was pretty enjoyable

I enjoyed listening to this piece of Spanish literature. Being a picaresque novella, Its pretty light. Plus, the narrator is of excellence.

One of literature's gems. Definitely a classic.

If you like Voltare and Swift you'll love this. The writing style is very similar to Candide.
