About the Author

Miguel de Cervantes was born in 1547. At the age of twenty-one, he joined the army. While fighting at sea, Cervantes was wounded, and while returning from this service, was kidnapped by Barbary pirates and enslaved in Algiers for fiveyears. Eventually ransomed, he returned to Spain in 1580. Literary success eluded Cervantes until the publication of Don Quixote in 1605. The success of this novel was such that within a few years, an unauthorised sequel appeared forcing Cervantes to write his own second part, published one year prior to his death in 1615.

Reviews

"I "highly recommend" Campfire's comics. They do what they are intended to do and do it in a way that excites kids about classic literature."

Spending 36 hours in the company of a 400-year-old novel sounds intimidating, but it needn't be-not when the book is as constantly amusing, inventive, and moving as Don Quixote. Cervantes's classic mock-heroic tale chronicles the adventures of a self-styled knight-errant whose efforts to restore medieval chivalry are a series of comic disasters. Considered the first modern novel, Don Quixote is one of the most entertaining stories ever told. Although John Ormsby's English translation is now 125 years old, it seems remarkably fresh. The novel's linear narrative is ideal for listening and combined with Roy McMillan's pitch-perfect narration makes those 36 hours nonstop pleasure for literature fans and general readers. Highly recommended.-R. Kent Rasmussen, Thousand Oaks, CA (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
