WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY HAROLD BLOOM. Widely regarded as the world's first modern novel, and one of the funniest and most tragic books ever written, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errant Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza, as they travel through sixteenth-century Spain. Unless you read Spanish, you've never read Don Quixote.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Don Quixote is the first modern novel, perhaps the most eternal novel ever written and certainly the fountainhead of European and American fiction" -- Carlos Fuentes
"What a unique monument is this book! How its creative genius, critical, free, and human, soars above its age!" -- Thomas Mann
"A fluent translation-has energy and clarity-and the rhythm of the telling is compelling" * Guardian *
"Indisputably the definitive translation" * Observer *
"Cervantes is the founder of the Modern Era. The novelist need answer to no one but Cervantes. Don Quixote is practically unthinkable as a living being, and yet, in our memory, what character is more alive?" -- Milan Kundera

“Surprisingly good”

I loved the way the story was written. The diary format actually made me draw my curtains in case dracula was waiting for me...
It is a lot better than the modern take on vampires. Twilight does not beat this classic.
