Don Quijote

by Miguel de Cervantes

Uno de mis libros favoritos, Don Quijote nos hace reir a carcajadas con sus locuras, llorar con sus fracasos, y la verdad es que aunque sepamos como terminará todo, nos hace cruzar los dedos y esperar que todo salga bien para Don Quijote - que gane aunque sea una vez. Intenté leerlo en inglés y la verdad es que no pude. Este es un libro mejor leído en español, el idioma original. Pocos han podido utilizar el castellano como lo hizo Don Cervantes y para disfrutar al máximo de la lengua, el ritmo del libro, etc., mejor leerlo en su idioma original.

Paul Faber, Surgeon

by George MacDonald

Really good book. MacDonald was a Scottish 19th century writer, his books are usually about families living in Scotland. This one is a love-story, but other characters and incidents are recorded. I like his unhurried prose, and he also writes some poetry in his books, usually as songs or poems in the characters' words.

MacDonald was a Christian minister, and his books can be read by Christians without worry about content and language. He describes the growth of the spirit and spiritual experience of Paul Faber and others throughout the book.

He reproduces the Scots dialect, some readers may find it difficult if English is not their first language.

I gave it 4 out of 5 because the language is heavy going at times. This is a book which needs to be read more than once to get the most out of it.
