I agree about translations...,

This review is from: News of a Kidnapping (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century) (Paperback)
Having read a number of Garcia Marquez's works in Spanish and English, I was unprepared for the curt, almost truncated writing style of this work in the English translation. There are moments when Garcia Marquez's voice rings true, and the terrifying events kept me reading, but I plan on taking other reviewers' advice, and I will read it in Spanish to get the true "sabor".
