I read the first half; the second part was kind of draggy so I never finished. Now, the story of Cervantes' life was fascinating.
Sadly, I have never read the book.....
An interesting update.
During the first trimester of 2005, "Don Quijote" was the #2 best-seller in Mexico and Argentina, and #3 in Spain.
Who says classics are dead?
Well, this is the 400th anniversary of the writing!
