In rich imaginative prose that has come to define an entire genre known as magical realis One Hundred Years of Solitude is an absolute ground breaking book; it is intelligent creative and full of powerful anecdotal wisdom It deservedly won the noble prize for literature But how enjoyable is it? How readable is it?Gabriel García Máruez plays around with reality itself; he plays around with the limitations of fiction; he uses elements of magic of the fantastic to give voice to things that could never be said uite as effectively in normal terms he breaks through realism and establishes his own original style He did nothing short of launching a new mode of literary address magical realism He wasn’t the first writer to do such a thing though his writing was the first to attract criticism which in effect allowed for it to be defined and recognised For me the strongest element of the book resides in its inherent pessimism with its unfortunate understanding that history can and will repeat itself All good intentions go awry indeed One Hundred Years of Solitude challenges the progress or lack thereof of society It creates a self contained history in its isolated framework which arguably reflects the nature of mankind or at least it echoes Columbian history with its liberal history in the face of imperialism No matter how much we want to change the world or how much we believe in a revolution or a new political ideal these good intentions often become warped when faced with the horrors of war and bloodshed Nothing really changes There’s no denying the success of Máruez’s epic; there’s no denying its ingenuity I really enjoyed parts of the novel but it was awfully difficult to read uncomfortably so The prose is extremely loose and free flowing to the point where it feels like thought; it’s like a torrent of verbal diarrhoea that feels like it will never end Characters die eerily similar characters take their place within the story and the narrative continues until the well has completely run dry of any actual life It is pushed so terribly far one hundred years to be precise And that’s my biggest problem I’m a sentimentalist I like to feel when I read I like to be moved either to anger or excitement I want to invest in the characters I want to care about their lives and I want to be provoked by their actions Máruez’s approach meant that this was impossible to do so It’s a huge story told in just a few hundred pages It’s sweeps across the lives of the characters some exceedingly important characters in the story are introduced and die a very short time after to establish the sheer futility of human existence and effort Máruez tried to demonstrate Máruez writes against European tradition and the legacy of colonialism; he creates something totally new which is becoming increasingly hard to do Although I do appreciate this novel I did not enjoy reading it as much as I could have doneFacebook| Twitter| Insta| Academia

How many times have my children asked me that growing up with a mother who spends most of her time reading to them alone for work for pleasure or looking for new books in bookstores wherever we happen to beI can't answer that there are so many books I love and in different waysJust name one that comes to mindAnd I said without really knowing why and without thinkingOne Hundred Years Of SolitudeWhy?BecauseThis novel taught me that chaos and order are two sides of the same medal called family life It taught me that sadness and love go hand in hand and that life is easy and complicated at the same time It taught me that many wishes actually come true but never in the way we expect and most often with a catch It taught me that sun and rain follow each other even though we might have to wait for four years eleven months and two days for rain to stop falling sometimes It taught me that there are as many recipes for love as there are lovers in the world and that human beings are lazy and energetic good and bad young and old ugly and beautiful honest and dishonest happy and sad all at the same time together and lonelyIt taught me that we are forever longing for what we do not have until we get what we long for Then we start longing for what we lost when our dreams came trueThis novel opened up the world of absurdities to me and dragged me in like no other In each member of the Buendía family I recognise some relation or myself or both Macondo is the world in miniature and wherever I go it follows me like a shadow It is not rich peaceful or beautiful It is just Macondo No no lessMy favourite book? I don't know There are so many But I don't think any other could claim to be loved than this one
