Florencia Like most 'obligatory' reading, I was forced to read a couple of chapters of Don Quijote in High School, much like one would be forced to read Shakespeare in the English-speaking world. I did not enjoy it ... at all. In college once again I came upon it, and read all of it. I was amazed, it made me laugh so hard in certain parts I could not believe it had been written so many hundred years before (believing in that myth that humor does not travel well). It was funny, it was sad, it was absurd, it was all a novel should be. Cervantes does travel well through time.
