The Complete Don Quixote | Miguel de Cervantes

The irony.. ?

I've been slowly reading this graphic along with the book. It's a nice way to recap via illustrations. It is wild to me that the most memorable part of Don Quixote (based on comments and discussions I've seen so far) are the windmill "giants" in the first 10% of the book.That just tells me most people never read the whole thing, because it's completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of this tome.

Wow…just wow. I‘m proud of myself for completing this, and thanks to @TheAromaofBooks of leading us through this #RandomClassic . I feel so sad for Don Quixote and the variety of tricks played on him in his adventures. There is also quite a lot of superfluous words in the text, making it at times a bit of a bog to wade through. Yet, I liked this. Don Quixote remained a chivalrous “knight” on his many escapades, and his kindness is his strength.

Ruthiella Congratulations on finishing such a tome! 👏👏👏 I‘ve tried it but failed myself. 5mo

TheAromaofBooks Lovely review!! I completely agree - I actually ended up rather fond of DQ and admired his determination to stick to his values, even if they didn't always make a lot of sense 😂 I have two chapters left so I should finally finish tomorrow!! Thank you so much for reading along with me!! 5mo
Librarybelle @TheAromaofBooks Thank you!!! Don Quixote is such a lovely guy. This was a lot of fun! 5mo

Kiddo‘s Christmas #bookhaul (plus four yesterday for jolabokaflod, plus another six or so over the last month for the book advent calendar…). The tagged book is the blue one near the bottom. Oh, and a massive haul in B&N gift cards. What do they say about apples and trees?

#RandomClassics @TheAromaofBooks What a ride! Thank you so much for hosting this great read. I would have never finished without you. I‘m glad to have finally read this classic. I loved the sarcasm and found myself laughing out loud quite a bit. Some parts should have been cut out! The best scenes were the ones of just Don & Sancho. Hilarious. I was very surprised and saddened by the ending. It was not what I had hoped for or expected. ⭐️⭐️⭐️1/2

TheAromaofBooks Woohoo!! I'm very interested to see how this one ends - so many things going on! 6mo
