Berta Isla: A novel | Javier Maras

These are my library books due in the next week. Will I finish any or all? I have 16 more library books due in the following 2 weeks. Our library allows 25 books at a time to be checked out, for a 3 week term. I try to read in order of due dates, but for some books I read out of order if I can‘t wait.

When you trying to read for the #wintergames but your dog decides to lay on it and stare at you until you give up. Fine, pup, I just wont ever finish this book.

Embarking on a quest to revive chivalry suggests that Alonso Quixano (better known as Don Quixote de La Mancha) was #LivingForLove

Lcsmcat @jewright I don‘t read Spanish, so I‘m just hoping it‘s a good translation. 2mo
Graywacke One I need to read too. Nice edition! 2mo
Lcsmcat @Graywacke Maybe after we work our way through Cather‘s oeuvres we can tackle Cervantes! 2mo

Yes I abandoned this one and yes I have it 2 stars anyways. I actually love Don Quixote and Sancho. I loved it every time they bantered or fought giant windmills and charged at people who he thought were the “enemy” and be all
Bumbling. Those are the bits I Loved and how positive he always stayed, searching for love.

But the short stories throughout took me out of the story. So I bailed

RachelAmphlett Omg, i tried to read this years ago and bailed! Such a shame as the concept always fascinated me! 2mo
Booklover2 I wanted to love it with all my heart 2mo

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 3mo
Librarybelle Totally understand, @Cinfhen ! 3mo
ravenlee I‘ve tried to read this several times and never get more than a few pages in. Sigh. 3mo

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. 3mo

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.
