Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential literary works of our time, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a dazzling and original achievement by the masterful Gabriel García Márquez, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature.

One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, and alive with unforgettable men and women — brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul — this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.

About the Author

Gabriel García Márquez was born in Colombia in 1927. His many books include The Autumn of the Patriarch; No One Writes to the Colonel; Love in the Time of Cholera; a memoir, Living to Tell the Tale; and, most recently, a novel, Memories of My Melancholy Whores. Gabriel García Márquez was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1982.

Difficult, challenging at times to follow the characters many of whom have very similar names; well worth the effort, he was deserving of the Nobel in Literature. A good introduction to his work would be “Love in the Time of Cholera”, not nearly as depressing as it sounds, the very epitome of magical realism.

This is a beautiful book. Wonderfully written, I felt fully involved with the characters, the time, and the town. I didn’t want the book to end.
