Miguel de Cervantes began to write this literary classic after serving in the Spanish militia, surviving a gunshot wound, being captured by Barbary pirates, forced into slavery, and being ransomed by his parents. He knows intimately the joys and tragedies of life, love, and loss, and his literary masterpiece is considered one of the most influential works of literature.

A very long and suprisingly funny read. Full of gems, in regards to quotes and phrases. Speaks to philosophy of life.

Widely regarded as the wqorld's first modern novel, Don Quixote chronicles the famous picaresque adventures of the noble knight-errand Don Quixote de La Mancha and his faithful squire, Sancho Panza as they travel through sixteenth century Spain.

Short and sweet version -- believe me, when compared to the original!
