One Hundred Years of Solitude

One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gregory Rabassa, Gabriel García Márquez I really enjoyed this book. At first, I had a hard time getting involved, but before I knew it, I just couldn't put the book down. I was insanely confused with the characters since they all have close to the same name. I enjoyed the dynamics of the characters and how they each played a role in the growth and demise of the small town, Macondo. The feel of the writting seemed to be more like Faulkner - long-ass sentences, lots of characters, repetition, etc. The book could definitely be read more multiple times, finding something new on each read.

More to come with my blog post. When published, I will link here.
