Review: Don Quixote by Cervantes

This week’s throwback Thursday has apparently sold more copies than any other book in history – it’s Cervantes’s Don Quixote.

The plot is pretty thin here to say the least: A Spanish hidalgo reads too many books about knights and chivalry, goes a bit crazy, believes himself to be some kind of knight errant in the mould of Sir Lancelot, ropes in the naive Sancho Panza to be his squire, and tours the countryside looking for adventures. 139 more words
