If, like me, you are an angloparlante, I suggest perhaps reading the English version first before deciding on buying it in Spanish.
However, there is no doubt that it is a super tale (although Ursula's longevity is a bit hard to believe)and undoubtedly represents the best of the Nobel Literature Laureate.
I thought I was fluent in Spanish until I decided to read this book in Spanish. I was proved so wrong! The book is brilliant, amazingly written and an incredible story line but it is written in a regional rather that standard Spanish.. Luckily enough, Amazon dictionary in my Kindle is helping me most of the time to make sense of a few words. I would like to say that I found quite lots of words unknown to me and felt pretty bad until I noticed that the Kindle's Spanish Royal Academy dictionary was experiencing similar problems in recognising some words - not as many as I but quite a few nevertheless.
Thanks Amazon for making dictionaries available free of charge on Kindle devices.
I have yet to finish reading this book but already planning to read the English version. Actually, I was planning and looking forward to read the English version until I found that the Kindle version is £28.46!
I know that a faithful translation must be a nightmare but £28+ for an ebook? I think I will go for the paperback edition for around £6
So far this book gets 4 stars out of 5 only because of the use of a Spanish dialect. I will update my review as soon as I finish reading it
This is the some of the magic that is One Hundred Years of Solitude, the socio-political realism that of the stark horrors of the Spanish Civil War.
Marquez's creativity, imagination and descriptive prose is wonderful. He is surely one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century, certainly the greatest in the genre of magic realism, and 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' one of the greatest books.
Marquez is one of the few authors whose prose is so beautifully written that I have had to read passages over and over again. 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' is easily my favourite book.
I have even named my cats after his characters.

Not my favorite of Gabriel Garcia. He has other books that are more inspiring. But it was good and entertaining.Published 8 months ago by Felipe

Very rich in words, images, philosophical ideas and altogether it is quite fascinating for anyone who is not looking for action. Well worth it!Published 9 months ago by bob
