Oh the layers upon layers of text in a Garcia Marquez novel! This story about machismo and honor and duty and love is told in the form of a mystery although the reader already knows the outcome. This form allows us to stay intrigued, reading as if on the edge of a seat, but in reality we are learning about the characters, their opinions and motivations, the town and it's culture, the customs and their pitfalls. Loved it.
