    Not worth the hassle. Too many typos

    This is unacceptable. If B&N is going to make some books available in its ebookstore, it ought to have some quality control. Don't just scan a book, run it through the character recognition software and then post the file. At least have someone try reading through it and correct the words that the software misread.
    Sure, B&N is "giving it away." But that does not make it free. I wasted time downloading it and trying to begin reading it before realizing that this was crap. B&N would be better off not posting stuff like this at all than posting something like this.

    Poor machine translation

    This book was translated by a google project to digitize books; as this is a difficult task, there are rampant errors in the body of the text. I reccomend going to the project gutenberg web site for a far superior copy.

    A knight born out of his time

    Don Quixote is the unique story of a great knight born five hundred years behind his time. The story starts out when Don Quejada, the lord of his manor in Spain, losses his grip between reality and the fantasy world in his books. Don Quejada spends all of his time reading books and, when he finally looses it, he decides that to become a knight he must embark on a great adventure to protect the world from tyranny with his great knightly skills. Along the way, he changes his name to Don Quixote de la Mancha and convinces a Spanish farmer, Sancho Panza, that he must be Quixote's squire and follow his along his many knightly escapades. The adventures that Don Quixote and Sancho encounter all have comical overtone to them beacause of the time that they live in but one has to feel sorry for the knight because he makes such a fool of himself and is clearly mad with no one to help him back to a state sanity. <P> Setting makes this story unique. The fact that he is a knight living in the 1600's points to that fact that Quixote is born 500 years too late. While this makes for many hilarious adventures, it also makes the reader feel sorry for the character because many people are down on him. This story is also unique in the sense that it basically tells the story of man who lets his imagination run away with him, he loses any sigh on reality and sees only what he has read in his stories. Setting in this story is so important because had Don Quixote been born in a different era he might have been revered for his knightly intentions instead of being beaten and ridiculed.

    READ THIS BOOK!

    I loved this book. even if it took me three months to read it. i finally got done. I know that Cervantes knew what he was talking about. He did a great job on this book and i'm happy that they made a few movies about it. I am writing my review for my 9th grade English II class.

    DON QUIXOTE TRIUMPHS

    this book marvels in the relms of true artistic writing. Cervantes is a man who loves to get to the end of his tunnel.

    One of the Greatest Books Ever!

    I thought that Don Quixote was a great book! I love how Don Quixote is always going on some new adventure that almost always ends up funny. I love the words Don Quixote uses because he thinks he's a knight. When I finished reading this book it made me want to turn knight errant myself. I thought that though Don Quixote is ridiculed and beaten, he is a true knight and gentleman. This book shows a person who has the courage to pursue his dream no matter what the odds are. Don Quixote is now my personal hero.

    Original 'Pinky and Brain'? One of the Best in 400yrs.

    I knew the name of Don Quixote, but I had never read it until this year. When I open first page of this book, I couldn't stop reading until the end. Wow, this is the greatest novel I've ever read in my life. I think all the basic elements of comedy is origianally started from Cervantes. Amongst many translated versions of 'Don Quixote', I think Mr.Cohen's one is the best.
