10. Don Quixote

Don Quixote
Miguel de Cervantes  

First of all, to save yourself embarrassment it is pronounced "key-oh-tee."  I had someone ask me what I thought of Don "quiz-ox" and they sounded like a freaking moron.  
I practically did a dance when I read this.  It was wonderful.  So many different characters drifted through this book and I became attached to all of them.  I felt like something had been taken away from me when I finished.  It was very sad. 
RATING: ***** 


  1. I am eager to read this book---as soon as I finish my current book, the last Spenser novel by Robert Parker, I will read this. It is waiting for me on my desk.

  2. I have never read Spenser but I do know that Don Quixote might be one of my favorite books so get cracking!

  3. I thought it was charming!

  4. Loved it as well. Best book on the List so far. It is indeed sad to finish it.
    Favorite joke: Quixote pleading Sancho to get on with his self-lashing. Priceless.

    1. I'm farther now, but still might be the best book on The List so far. I have a print of Picasso's Don Quixote hanging above my bookshelves, as a shrine.
