I loved this book: García Marquez is very like Faulkner in his subject matter, yet he manages not to drive me crazy. His wonderful writing style is aided by a very smooth translation, and the story he tells is fantastic in the original sense of the word. It's an elliptical, oblique foundation myth for all of Latin America, while at the same time being an engrossing, confusing, absorbing tale of a family over the course of a century.
