One Hundred Years of Solitude


#1

oh my what a marvelous masterpiece
I’ve been seven days living in Macondo. I’ve felt solitude, I’ve seen generations come and go and I’ve cried during whole chapters. I don’t think I have words to express how I feel after having finished it.
If you haven’t read it, please do it, but only if you’re prepared. Really, it’s an unforgetable experience.

No, should I?


#5

Great book terrible song


#6

One of those things people insist you absolutely must investigate but which in reality is just pretty boring, like, say, Either/Or, or Paris, Texas.


#7

Maybe my favourite book – certainly up there.

If you want to stay in that world a little longer, ‘No One Writes To The Colonel’ is a collection of stories that take place in Macondo


#8

Yes, I read it some weeks ago! I really liked it, but until now I didn’t know they took place in Macondo, too.

#10

Its good but I think I prefer Love in the time of Cholera.


#11

I much preferred Love in the time of cholera.


#12

One of my faves, I love books that follow people over years, like East of Eden too.

I was amazed at how easy it was to follow, considering massive plot changes pretty much occur on each page. The only thing that was difficult was the names, Jose Arcadio/ Benduia etc

Your acts of indie contrariness are the occasions when you sound the most boring. Counter intuitive, you’d think.
