Miguel de Cervantes’ Don Quixote
Considered by many literary experts and nerds to be one of the greatest novels ever, Don Quixote is a genuinely hilarious novel despite the fact that it is about 400 years old. It tells the story of a man who loves reading about heroes so much that he decides he will go out and become a hero himself. Think of it as a super old school Kick Ass. The story is clever, funny, and would work in just about any time frame, so, why not now?
