it was ok

Have had this book on my shelf for over 6 years and have only ever been able to get through a couple of pages. However, as it is one of the 1001 Books (WHY?) I decided to try and plow through it. What a plow it was. Stylistically, it was difficult. Sentences were very long, verbose and the allusions were often elusive. Translation? I don't think so. Just not my cup of tea. Maybe I've outgrown the wonders of magic realism -- although I did love "Love in the Time of Cholera" and "100 Years of Solitude."
