    SO far this book is interesting. I must say however that reading 'Love in Times of Cholera' kind of prepared me for Mr Marquez's style of writing. I am on page 115 and while i cannot say the book has grabbed me neither am i prepared to write it off completely. some of the characters have similar names and while this may be a South American thing it sure can be confusing. Another thing lucking for me is emotional attachment to any of the characters. Any one of them can drop dead at any time and t SO far this book is interesting.

Another thing lucking for me is emotional attachment to any of the characters. Any one of them can drop dead at any time and to tell you the truth i could not care less. Now that, right there, is a serious problem. This book is doing something to me. I don't want to shave, i can go a whole day without food, i am having sleepless nights and i am restless. To dismiss it would surely be a mistake at this point in time. There are characters in this book who will become forever mute if their loved ones are shot, others will shut themselves from the world if they lose their lovers, and there are others still who will cause the death of their loved ones and die virgins. This book has characters that just rock!

    Helpful to a point. The Spark note Summaries are organized by chapter number. Neither edition of the book had chapter numbers. I had to put sticky notes throughout the book so I could go back and forth. Actually the book still gives me a headache.

    Gabriel Garcia Marquez´book is the second master peace in Latin America. I learned about it in High School but did not read it until my adulthood. It´s a combination of reality and fiction. His imagination was so amazing. You get so absorbed in the story that makes you laugh, cry, and identify with the characters. Every event is a surprise, tragedy, chaos, craziness, rareness.

It covers the life of a family who founded a village that lived for a period of a hundred years that had an economical, social and political development and whose people even as a result of "insest", at the begining were apparently happy and experienced prosperity but after the explosion of the of the civil war in Colombia, the innovation of trains,technology, other discoveries, foreigners, plagues, corruption, massacre, the village was destined from the begining to tragedy, suffering, solitude and dissapearance of their village and their people.

    Absolutely phenomenal. Not the most natural flow because it takes a while to grow accustomed to the cyclical flow of the story. At first you find yourself thinking, if one more member of this family makes that same goddamn mistake as his brother/father/grandfather/uncle made, I'm going to burn this book. SInce I have strong feelings about book burning, I stuck with it. There are dangers associated with taking such a grand, sweeping account of a family, a town, a country.

This book was (I think) a metaphor for the Columbian oppression by the Europeans and their subsequent revolution- a pretty intense story to take on and in such a delicate, thoughtful way.

    It was weired reading this book. i thoght i was getting it at first then I got lost in and could not figure out the real stuff from the mirage and hallucinations. But because i am a sucker for punishment i read on and to this day i cannot tell you what it is that i read in that book. As i am not a masochist i will never touch that book again.

    I can't say that I understood this book, but I find myself thinking about images from this book often (especially the ants) - and I can understand why this book won a Pulitzer Prize. I read this postpartum which wasn't very good timing because it is depressing so my interpretation may be a little skewed, but I am glad to have read it.

    Greatest. Book. Ever. Well, one of them. From the unforgettable opening when his father Jose Buendia takes him to see ice for the first time, to one of the most dramatic endings in literary history... and filled with 1,000 Aureliano Buendias in between... this one is a MUST READ.

    After the third attempt over the last 20 years I finally finished this book - and I am so happy that I did. 100 Years of Solitude turned out to be one of my favorite books.
