Thibault’s Score: 2/5
Like many people, I had heard of the tales of Don Quixote, a fictional account of an insane man who pretends to be a knight and gets into trouble.
I found the writing style to be odd, and didn’t enjoy reading Don Quixote, so I had to put the book down after the first 6 chapters. The plot itself is boring, and doesn’t work very well for modern audiences.
I suspect that, to the extent that a person like Don Quixote might have existed, he likely suffered from some form of Aspergers syndrome. The way Don Quixote LARPs reminds me somewhat of the behavior I have seen in adults with autism.
Most of my articles are book reviews, but I also write about many other topics.
