Started One Hundred Years of Solitude

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Marquez.

One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Marquez.


Reading author Gabriel Marquez was recommended to me by an agent I had met at a recent writing show. For future reference, when sending out query letters, I had asked her about what terms to use to best capture the genre of my novel. For example, paranormal versus magical realism? (I’m thinking the latter, if either.) The book One Hundred Years of Solitude came up as a possible answer. I have not heard of the novel, despite it having won the Nobel prize, but certainly look forward to reading it.

(I need to read faster as the pile of to-read books grows every month.)

    For some reason I didn’t expect to enjoy this book when I sat down to read it (as can sometimes happen when you’ve been told to read it by too many people), but it completely blew me away. I hope you enjoy!

      Wonderful to hear from you. 🙂 I’m too slow a reader, but so far it’s absorbing. Will post thoughts when I finish.
