did not like it
Read in June, 2009

This book was really confusing and really hard. There are so many characters and about half of them have three names, like Bayardo Son Ramon. The book starts with the person dying and then it explains how he dies. He dies because he gets stabbed. Overall I didn't really like this book because it was so confusing and had too many metaphors. Marquez used a lot of magical realism and then I couldn't tell because he made it seem like everything he wrote was real even though half of it might have been fake.
