I was born in a communist Latin-American country and lived there as a young child. I’ve read this book many years ago in both English and Spanish and it was a chore to finish. Marqudz is too short to waste reading something you don’t enjoy. As a colombian, I felt “obliged” to read the book, which I did several times, but the genealogical tree of repeated names was driving me crazy and I wasn’t able to finish it.

So I draw it and I finished the book the fourth time I read it. And when I finished it, I had the biggest smile on my face. It reflects so much of the colombian magical realism that, might not very appealing to everybody.

Revised 28 March Huh? I just had the weirdest dream. There was this little town, right? And everybody had, like, the same two names. And there was this guy who lived under a tree and a lady who ate dirt and some other guy who just made little gold fishes all the time.

That was messed up. I need some coffee. The was roughly ho Revised 28 March Huh?

One Hundred Years of Solitude – Wikipedia

The was roughly how I felt after reading this book. These things just happen. A girl floats off into the sky, a man gwbriel far longer than he should, and these things are mentioned in passing as though they were perfectly normal. In this case, Colonel Aureliano Buendia has seventeen illegitimate sons, all named Aureliano, by seventeen different women, and they all come to his house on the same day. The twins Aureliano Segundo and Jose Arcadio Segundo may have, in fact, switched identities when they were children, but no one knows for sure — not even them.

In the gbriel town of Macondo, weird things happen vea the timeand nobody really notices. Or if you do notice that something is wrong, but no one grcia seems to be worried about it, then you try to pretend like coming to work dressed only in a pair of spangly stripper briefs and a cowboy hat is perfectly normal. Vaec, the narrator moves around from one character to another, giving them their moment for a little while, and then it moves on to someone else, very smoothly and without much fanfare.


The result is one long, continuous narrative about this large and ultimately doomed family, wherein the Buendia family itself is the main character, and the actual family members are secondary to that.

It was certainly an interesting reading experience, but it took a while to get through. I actually kept falling asleep as I read it, which is unusual for me. By reading his book, I slipped off into that non-world of dreams and illusions, marqjez the fantastic is commonplace and ice is something your father takes sijguratate to discover.

Garvia sequestered Father Nicanor in the parish house under pain of execution and prohibited him from saying mass or ringing the bells unless it was for a Liberal victory. In order that no one would doubt the severity of his aims, he ordered a firing squad organized in the square and had it shoot a scarecrow. At first no one took him seriously. View all comments.

Guess I was just in the mood for it. Here’s how it breaks down: I singuuratate literally feel new wrinkles spreading across the surface of my brain when I read this guy.

He’s so wicked smart that there’s no chance he’s completely sane. After reading three chapters, it starts making sense Sure, it’s an epic tragedy following a long line of familial insanity, but that doesn’t stop the people from eating dirt, coming back from the dead, spreading a plague of contagious insomnia, or enjoying a nice thunderstorm of yellow flowers.

It’s all presented in such a natural light that you think, “Of course. Of course he grows aquatic plants in his false teeth. Now why wouldn’t he? Nobody writes like him.

Most people who read for relaxation and entertainment will want to send Marquez hate mail. Also, there are approximately 20 main characters and about 4 names that they all share. Not even gsrcia classic Russians suffer from as much name-confusion as this guy. On an uber-disturbing note, Marquez has once again as he did in Love in the Time of Cholera written a grown man having sex with a girl as young as You give ONE of your characters marqiez unique, but disgusting characteristic and it’s good writing.

Give it to more than one, and we start thinking we’re reading your psychological profile, ya creep! If you feel like pushing your brain to vesc max, read it. The man did win the Nobel after all, it’s amazing. But get ready to work harder to understand something than you ever have before in your life. And may God be with you.


He soon acquired the forlorn look that one sees in vegetarians. Children inherit their parents’ madness. He really had been through death, but he had returned because he could not bear the solitude.

The air was so damp that fish could have come in through the doors and swum out the windows. He was unable to bear in his soul the crushing weight of so much past. It’s enough for me to be sure that you and I exist at garci moment. A person doesn’t die when he should but when he can.


Academics and their students that are forced to read it. So I know that I’m supposed to like this book because it is a classic and by the same author who wrote Love in the Time of Cholera. Unfortunately, I just think it is unbelievably boring with a jagged plot that seems interminable. Sure, the language is interesting and the first line is the stuff of Sinvuratate English courses.

Sometimes I think books get tagged with the “classic” label because gabrkel academics read them and didn’t understand and so they hailed these books as genius. These same acade So I know that I’m supposed to like this book because it is a classic and by the same author who wrote Love in the Time of Cholera.

These same academics then make a sport of looking down their noses at readers who don’t like these books for the very same reasons. If this all sounds too specific, yes I had this conversation with a professor of mine. I know that other people love this book and more power singguratate them, I’ve tried to read it all the way through three different times and never made it past pages before I get so bored keeping up with all the births, deaths, magical events and singyratate legends.

I’ll put it this way, I don’t like this book for the same reason that I never took up smoking. If I have to force myself to like it, what’s the point. When I start coughing and hacking on the first cigarette, that is my body telling me this isn’t good for me and I should quit singurtate there.

When I start nodding off on the second page of One Hundred Vezc of Solitude that is my mind trying to tell me I should find a better way to pass my time.

More like A Hundred Years of Torture. I read this partly in a misguided attempt to expand my literary horizons and partly because my uncle was a big fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Then again, he also used to re-read Ulysses for fun, which just goes to show that you should never take book advice from someone whose IQ is more than 30 points higher than your own.

I have patience for a lot of excesses, like verbiage and chocolate, but not for pages featuring three generations of people with the same names. I finally tore out the family tree at the beginning of the book and used it as a bookmark! The rest of the time I was wondering if I was the victim of odorless paint fumes. Again, to be fair, this novel is lauded and loved by many, and I can sort of see why. View all 65 comments.
