Oh, Don Quixote! You‘re on my to read list, along with so many other #chunkster classics! I do know of his reputation...tilting at windmills, thinking he is a knight, etc. #TheSwordFight #SoaringScores

#SebastianKitty wanted in the photo too! #catsoflitsy

Cinfhen This is one book I‘m not interested in tackling #PageCountPhobia 2w
Librarybelle Totally understand, @Cinfhen ! 2w
ravenlee I‘ve tried to read this several times and never get more than a few pages in. Sigh. 2w

Tamra This past summer I enjoyed the first book mainly, but it seemed to get repetitive. Silly misunderstandings lead to shenanigans, repeat. Add in exaggerated chivalric love. 2w

Don Quixote: World Classics | Miguel Cervantes

Mehso-so

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.

Saying hello to Don Quixote and Sancho Panza on the It's A Small World Ride! Or, nerdspotting, as I now like to call it when I find bookish references out in the world 🤓
