“This is the story of what a Woman‘s patience can endure, and what a Man‘s resolution can achieve.” My husband‘s in Italy, my children are in their rooms, me, wine, fire, a Victorian Gothic novel and my dogs - bliss

I ordered this book and now I have it in my possession. So...I guess there aren‘t any more excuses. I just need to get on with it. Gosh, look at all of those pages! I‘m filled with apprehension and possibly dread! I‘m trying desperately to hold on to the encouragement given from you, my dearest Littens, but those words are fading fast in the presence of this phenomenal encounter.

CogsOfEncouragement I had this on my kindle for about 3 years. I kept putting it off because of the length. I finally read it in February. I enjoyed it thoroughly and gave it 5 stars on goodreads. Enjoy! 3h
diovival That one's been on my list for a while. I've heard so many good things! 2h

Our book club read a #GhostStory collection a couple of Chritmasses ago, and this was the first story in the book; coincidentally, a TV adaption from the 70s was broadcast over that same Christmas.

Don Quixote: World Classics | Miguel Cervantes

I‘m stuck in the 20th century as far as literary critique of this one goes; critics in that era came to view the story as a tragedy, where Don Quixote‘s simple idealism is rendered useless by a harsh reality. Sure, there are plenty of quick quips and slapstick encounters, but really, the truth at the heart of the story is terribly sad.
