Miriam B. Kahn
AudioFile, August 2011

First published in 1605 and 1615 in two volumes, DON QUIXOTE is a tale of reinvention and the romantic imagination. Roy McMillan delivers it quickly and crisply, an approach that allows the listener to focus on its humor. McMillan’s light British accent gives way to lilting Spanish phrases as he charms listeners with mistaken identities, convoluted reasoning, and melodious verses. Cervantes’s canonical tale of personal honor lives on in McMillan’s energetic performance.
