100 Years of Solitude- A must read

100 yearsI got a copy of this book for Mother’s day from my daughter.’ One Hundred years of solitude’ written by Nobel prize winner for literature Gabriel Marquez, is definitely one of the most interesting, and wildly engaging books I have ever read.

It is both fiction and truth as Marquez weaves history with fantasy as he relates the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendia family. Marques is a true storyteller. Events move quickly and seamlessly between what is magical and real, what is pure and honest humanity.

I would recommend anyone wanting to read a timeless, true masterpiece of literature to own a copy of this great literature and read it over and over. This is my second read and I intend to relish every page as I did the first.
