A very strong, profound book. The message is clear, and although this book is older than "Don Quixote", it is still very modern.

I would highly recommend looking past the antiquated language used and into the great literature that can be found here. The satire and symbolism are impecable.

Edited to add: The more I read this book the more I like it! The main character is lovable, on the contrary of everybody else, and I hugely enjoyed the fun way the book seems to go like a roller-coaster ride; slowly, slow, faster, faster, faster, finish. I like my amusement parks both in real life and ink life, making Lazarillo de Tormes well-worth the last star!
