Just to close the loop, I did finish listening to the twenty-nine CD’s which comprise Volumes I and II. Many delights. Much character development on the part of Sancho Panza.
One thing that was consistent throughout was the humor, Sancho Panza’s ass, Dapple, not at all minding having his species used as the butt of joke after joke. Like this: Dapple is briefly stolen, but Sancho Panza “immediately recognized his own ass” when they came across him again. 🙂
How clever is it to have your title character, on his deathbed, request that no writer continue his adventures after his death? (No sequel to this Gone with the Wind!)
Very fun to listen to this book. I’m moving on to “The Canterbury Tales.”
