Gabriel Garcia Marquez creates stories and characters full of life and fantasy. His novels challenge your reading experience as time has a different way of existing in his universe.

However, if you are open to lots of characters with the same name, with moving forwards and backwards and all around in time and finding realism tinged with fantasy then you are at the right place.

This novel is the story of the fictional town of Macondo from the beginning to the end. It is also the story of the rise and fall of a family from founding Macondo, to being involved in the wars and new developments of their time to the end.

I have enjoyed every minute of it even though I needed to be in the mood to read it. It certainly is worth a try.
