I would rate the story of Don Quixote a solid 3 out of 5 stars.  I found it an enjoyable read, yet I didn’t find it groundbreaking or revolutionary.  It seemed to a comical tale following the adventures of Don Quixote and his sidekick Sancho Panza and barely anything more.  I’d recommend the book to those wanting an easy, yet long read that is full of cheap thrills.  The book was overly repetitive in that there’s only so many misshaped adventures that the readers can take.  From a literary standpoint, I find that it narrowed in on focalization well and flipped between the internal and external narrator quite often.  I’m not quite sure this book is considered a literary classic, although I can see the literary creativity of Miguel de Cervantes in his writings.  I found “She Lived in a Story” to be more edgy and daring, unlike many things I’ve read before.  There were twists within the plot and a deeper storyline.
