One Hundred Years of Solitude was most striking on an aesthetic level. The prose is lyrical and gorgeous, and more than flowery writing, Marquez is incredible in establishing dramatic atmosphere. The elaborate history the novel is noted for is a rather interes"

Both looked back then on the wild revelry, the gaudy wealth, and the unbridled fornication as an annoyance and they "

"What is is about? It is the multi-generational story of the Buendía Family, whose patriarch, José Arcadio Buendía, founds the town of Macondo, the metaphoric Colombia. The non-linear story is narrated via different time frames, a technique derived from the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges. Personal note: A mesmerizing saga. It is quite huge and describes a family, generation after generation up to 8 generations. The writing style is great and keeps you on the edge until the end. Quote"
