One of the 20th century's enduring works, "One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize- winning career. The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendi a family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendi a family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America. Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel Garci a Ma rquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master. Alternately reverential and comical, "One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race. This P.S. edition features an extra 16 pages of insights into the book, including author interviews, recommended reading, and more.

My Favourite book
From the opening line I loved every single part of this book, right to its incredibly poetic ending that made goosebumps spring up as I desperately read the last few lines. It is of the magical surrealism genre, sort of along a similar vein as Haroun and the Sea of Stories, or The Alchemist, in the way that the plot has absolutely no boundaries in what may or may not happen. I love this book but I can understand why others may not - it is relatively long and very convoluted but I enjoyed that; I loved how it jumped back and and forth between each generation, reminiscent of the surreal tales of Ovid's Metamorphoses. (Another book I strongly recommend!) It has an array of quirky and enchanting characters all placed in the most incredible situations, although I must note that family tree that appears in most volumes is very helpful! It is a book that I recommend to almost everyone - except those that have little patience, or do not enjoy surrealism. It is a book that I often return to simply to jump in and out of certain episodes. It is beautiful and incredibly enchanting, and brimming with brilliant quotes from Marquez' many ponderings on the many aspects of life.

Never has a story been told so magically, eloquently, and with such attention to detail. Marquez transports the reader to a fantastic world which is as full of truth and emotion as it is of wonder and absurdity. If you are like me, you will read this book time and time again.
