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?
