2004 Cervantes—Don Quixote

The book itself was very interesting and led to many great conversation with my wife over the years, but what struck us even more than the contents of the book, was that what most people read in Don Quixote was not what it said, but what they thought it said based on their preconceptions. In this particular case the entire group was reacting to the movie/musical Man of La Mancha (it was an older audience) and any thought that the book might have been about something else was dismissed with utter disbelief.
