He leído este libro no en esta edición, sino en otra de la Editorial Espasa Calpe de 1941, con el título "Cervantes" (simplemente), traducción de Paul Kleins y prólogo de Nicolás González Ruiz.
Tras haber leído el Quijote bastantes veces, todas las Novelas Ejemplares (algunas, más de una y varias veces) y varios entremeses y otras obras, no me he atrevido (aún) en el Persiles; todo se andará. No me considero, ni de lejos, un cervantista de pro, pero todo lo relacionado con Don Miguel me atrae.
The life of Cervantes is brought vividly alive in this exciting and well written novel. This is not a biography but, way more fun, is a fictionalized account that let's the author use his fantastic ability to imagine the life and thoughts of a historical figure.
Monica Bittencourt
É a biografia de Cervantes contada como um romance. Realmente a vida dele foi uma grande aventura, que por si só já daria um bom livro. Gostei do final, onde o autor mostra como Cervantes se inspira para escrever Don Quijote.

Every writer of misfortune and a life-long struggle to create his art will recognize himself in these pages, and perhaps be inspired to ignore the minor significance of accidental circumstances.
