Mr. Pickwick and Don Quijote

This review is from: The Pickwick Papers: Premium Edition (Unabridged, Illustrated, Table of Contents) (Kindle Edition)

While writing this I am also organizing the markings file of my first Kindle book Don Quijote, which I have perused several times. The Pickwick papers only this first time, although having been conscious of its existence forever, at least 50 years. I thought that it is just a small heap of papers to be quickly eyed through. Even starting I was not aware of its extent. But it just went on and on. Only afterwards I found out that as paper book it is in some edition 660 pages and in another even 800, that is about a half of Don Quijote. And not an only dull sentence or dead end, just like DQ! Many times I continued still another chapter beyond what I had intended. I finished it in three weeks, that is good 30-40 pages a day, which is about double of its due quota, considering that I usually read two or three books parallelly.

But what about the connection between DQ and Pickwick? Is there any above the fact that they both are huge blocs of foremost world literature? I have the itching that yes, but cannot show clear instances. Of course both main persons are in some way foolish idealists, big free minds, which we all wish we could be. A great deal of both stories takes place in travelling, but by different means and in different signs: DQ on his miserable Rosinante and Pickwick on various horse buggies, one of which is called gig and described as - in fact not described closer than that it was on several occasions 'clay colored and red wheeled', but how many wheels? no mention. Never heard before of this vehicle. Wikipedia gives a host of gigs, and mentions the vehicle as two wheeled and horse drawn.

In general, I am very pleased with my invention of collecting dictionary lookups to a vocabulary file. This is one of the finest features of Kindle, although left half way in performance. You get the dictionary definition in an instant, but after closing it vanishes into thin air. Luckily there are screen grabbers with which you can save both the word and its definition.
