I've been listening to audiobooks for over 3 years now, over 35 books, 2 hours a day in my commute. Of all the books I've listened to, this is easily the best. It's the first that had me laughing so hard I was worried about the effect on my driving. George Guidall's unparalleled narration took me completely into the drama of the story, brought out the characters as if they were alive in another country - not some un-relatable figures from the 14th century.
I can't fully put in words how much I enjoyed this listen and I have to make this review short as I am at work.

Your highness Don Sancho Panza,
I wish to submit to you a review of the grand tale of Don Quixote of which you are the central figure. Of course your lordship knows that the book is named for your master but your wit, proverbs, and wise counsel make this story a joy to read. As the wise Miguel de Cervantes tells your history, he increases the enjoyment by really starting the second book of your adventures with extreme sarcasm and a bite of which the meanest of giants would be jealous. The constant reminder that the pseudo history written by an inferior author has no place in your noble adventures.
This audio version of your story is well casted by a great reader and impressionist for when he spoke I could not tell if I were listening or standing in your presence. Oh wise governor, may your story live in the hearts of your people and bring awe and fear to the hearts of those who dare besmudge the name of the great Don Sancho Panza.
Your humble servant,
