"It's obvious that no one has been in that room for at least a hundred years," the officer said to the soldiers. "There must even be snakes in there." Gabriel Garcia Marquez, who recently passed away at the age of 87, was a giant of 20th century literature and "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is his indisputable masterpiece, although I'm also very fond of "Love in the Time of Cholera." As Salman Rushdie pointed out in a recent tribute to Marquez in the NYT Book Review, "magical realism," of which this an exemplary example, is oft misunderstood, with many people just focusing on the magical aspects. But re-reading this again, I was struck by how grounded the fantastic elements were in the lives of the characters, something many of his imitators miss. An essential novel from an essential writer. "The first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race."-William Kennedy

This book goes through the history of an entire family bloodline from beginning to end. Each family member has their own unique and interesting story and each story is full of strange occurrences. The story begins as the family leaves their hometown to find new land and a new beginning. If you have read any other books by this author you will find that several of his charters from his books make appearances in this novel. This the kind of book you want to read more than once.

"Review" by , "One Hundred Years of Solitude is the first piece of literature since the Book of Genesis that should be required reading for the entire human race....Mr. García Márquez has done nothing less than to create in the reader a sense of all that is profound, meaningful, and meaningless in life."
"Review" by , "It is not easy to describe the techniques and themes of the book without making it sound absurdly complicated, labored and almost impossible to read. In fact, it is none of these things. Though concocted of quirks, ancient mysteries, family secrets and peculiar contradictions, it makes sense and gives pleasure in dozens of immediate ways."
"Review" by , "Magical realism may never have been so unmistakably exemplified as in One Hundred Years."
