Book Review: One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, my classic novel number 13, rarely ever felt … solitary. Marquez weaves together this amazing story of the mythical town Macondo through the lives of the Buendia family, a family full of stories; a family built on them it seems.

I greatly enjoyed reading this novel. I got to read about this great family, about their low points, their high points, the sadness and the happiness all while learning about this small town.

The only thing that I didn’t love was the ending, but I’m an avid reader and I think my strong feeling speak about just how great of a storyteller Marquez is and show just how strong of a story this is.

I already know that I will probably seek out some of his other works, like Love in The Time of Cholera.

Have you read this one or any of his others?

Happy Reading!

  1. I love this book. It’s diffiult to read because it’s like poetry and you really have to concentrate but it means you get all the benefits of reading poetry from it! Love in the Time of Cholera is next up on my list!
