it was ok
bookshelves: did-not-finish
Recommended for: people who like long paragraphs and don't like plot
Read in February, 2004

OY, THIS book. I remember calling it things like "One Hundred Things I Hate About You" and "One Hundred Years of Reading This Book". Ultimately, I read it because Oprah told Mimi to. Mimi, Lori and I (we were all managers of Borders together) decided to book club together with this book. I enjoyed Garcia Marquez's non-chalant, casual writing style, and I loved some of the ridiculous things that happened, but OY VEY it just went on forever. The paragraphs went on for pages, all the characters had the same name, and the events had nothing to do with one another and didn't seem to be building up to anything. I gave it until page 200 and then gave up.
