For my academic purposes I only really focussed on chapter 1,2,6 and 7. I would very much like to go back to the chapters in between in the future, especially the one on Garcia Marquez. A comprehensive book that aims to clarify magical realism in its different contexts, which no doubt will help in future investigations of it.
