I thought Don Quixote was utterly, utterly, boring. I kept thinking "it must get better, surely. Every 'best books in all of history' list has it way up there", but two thirds in it still had a superficial and shallow feel to it, as if there was nothing insightful to extract and it was just a pointless series of slap-stick misadventures. I stopped reading it. It might be the only book I set out to read and never finished. I tried to read it while I was deranged in a mental hospital and doped up on antipsychotic medication though, so maybe it was me.
