I’m sorry, but I just don’t enjoy Don Quixote. I find it repetitive and a bit silly. It’s possibly one of those works that makes more sense in context (i.e. to those familiar with the novels of chivalrous knights errant that it is satirising, and Spanish culture of the time). I’m sure someone else would enjoy it (after all, they keep making Will Ferrell movies), but not me. I’ve skimmed the remainder of the first part, and not been inspired to continue (but then, I am known to be fussy).
Lest anyone complain that I’m not giving it a chance, I did read around 150 pages worth. At least now I have a bit of background to attach various references onto.
