Oh my God! Noooooooooooooo!!!! Sep 27, 2010

As someone living in Castilla-La Mancha in Spain, and after our regional government bombarded us with all possible expressions and variants of praise to El Quijote during the year of celebration of the 4th century of the book, I stopped being a frequent reader of the novel. They wanted it, they got it! I am sure it will take me some 10 years to forget that all and read good old Quijote again.

It is most puzzling that our regional government chased us with praise to a book written by someone who was not from our region and clearly was mocking the region's people and character in his novel.
