    One thought on “One Hundred Years of Solitude: critical insights”

    1. Steeped in magical realism, the saga of the Jose Arcadio Buendia and Ursula Iguarian is woven with village life through the mythical town of Macondo which they founded in a swampy, isolated area. Garcia Marquez eloquently defines the meaning of life interweaving it with cultural beliefs and the everyday life of a family. The author's writing style is based on the way his grandmother told stories of family and neighbors during his childhood. One of the most memorable characters is Colonel Aurelia [...]

    2. I this was the second or third time I started this book - never could get into it, but it is rated as wonderful literature so I was determined to read it. It took me almost 150 pages to get into it enough to want to finish it. I think it would make a lot more sense if I read it again, but I'm going to do that. A lot of characters, symbolism I clearly didn't understand, and a part of the world I do not know. Still, it turned out to be interesting, and now I have read it.

    3. what a story teller. picked up the book because of the title. cant expalin why but it drew me. this book is so packed with wonderous stories. funny, traggic, brutal, romantic, wonderous, mystic, scientific, religious, industrial, there are so many dimensions to this book. plan to try his other books.

    4. It took me until toward the end to begin to get the hang of this book. I have to admit getting lost a bit and forgetting where characters fit in this crazy family tree. Reading it made me want to know more about Mexican history, culture and the language. His language is so poetic in the English translation, I would imagine it really rocks in Spanish.

    5. A story narrated by a deadpan narrator. It makes the craziness of the story stand out even more. Such an enjoyable read if you want to blend truth with myth.
