This book belongs in the genre of junior graphic novels.

This graphic novel is a contemporary "introduction" to the classic "Don Quixote".

The area for critique is plot. While the illustrations in this graphic novel are wonderfully expressive, the plot falls flat. This book is marketed as "an introduction" to the classic novel, but because of the underdevelopment of the plot and characters,due to the condensing of a very extensive classic, leaves the readers wanting.

Though it is incredibly short, I will give Eisner credit where it's due. This is an introduction to Don Quixote, and I got an introduction. A short, simple story with a little commentary on Don Quixote, his books, and his deeds. Decently written, well-drawn (as always), and enjoyable, to say the least.

It's a nice little introduction to Don Quixote, and Eisner's drawings of faces are very expressive.

Probably the coolest part was reading the book from an archival collection of Eisner material at Ohio State University.

Why I Read This Book: It looked interesting on the library shelf.

This was a fun read, but a bit unsatisfying. I guess that's what you get when you condense a long book (about 945 pages in the Oxford World's Classics edition) to a short comic (32 pages). The art and storytelling are very nice, though.

I suppose you can see this as an introduction to Cervantes book, if you want to be generous. I already loved Cervantes before I read this graphic novel, so it really had little chance of impressing me. It seems an ill-conceived project. Eisner's talent comes through, but does the world need this book? It may be more impressive to those who have not read Don Quixote.

this is the story of Don Quixote retold by Sancho Panza. How Don Quixote becomes a knight and all his adventures. This is a good book to introduce reluctant readers to the original work by Cervantes.

I did not like Eisner's interpretation of The Adventure of Don Quixote. He turned him into a person who could not accept reality for the sake of not being able to accept reality.

It is an okay short version of Don Quixote, but changing the end (compared to the novel) ruins Eisner's interpretation. It is a good book for children and good to get a overview of the novel.
