One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez is an marvelous and breathtaking book. It exhibits paranormal realism and entwine it through the lives of the Buendia family and the town of Macondo. This book is so full of meaning and philosophical with such powerful language then you end up loving and obsessing over this book. I've read other reviews of this book and it seems that people either love it or hate it as you can tell I'm in the love camp. The writing is striking. My English copy included a family tree in the front that I referenced frequently due to the amount of characters.
