LA REAL ACADEMIA ESPANOLA Y LA ASOCIACION DE ACADEMIAS DE LA LENGUA ESPANOLA PRESENTAN CIEN ANOS DE SOLEDAD UNA EDICION POPULAR CONMEMORATIVA CUYO TEXTO HA REVISADO EL PROPIO GABRIEL GARCIA MARQUEZ. La Asociacion de Academias de la Lengua Espanola presentaron, en el marco del IV Congreso Internacional de la Lengua Espanola (Cartagena de Indias, 26 a 29 de marzo), una edicion de Cien anos de soledad revisada por el autor. --From the Publisher

Como con el Quijote cuando cumplio cuatro siglos, la Real Academia lanza una edicion especial de una novela ejemplar. Esta vez, le toca a Cien anos de soledad en una edicion limitada que circulara 3 anos a partir de su presentacion, a fines de marzo del 2007 en Cartagena de Indias, para festejar los 40 anos de su primera publicacion y los 80 de Garci­a Marquez. La introduccion es de Carlos Fuentes, el analisis de Mario Vargas Llosa y el perfil del autor, de Alvaro Mutis. Incluye glosario, genealogi­a de los Buendi­a, estudios de academicos de varios paises y notas de Gabo, quien autorizo las pruebas de impresion finales y las correcciones pendientes desde aquella primera edicion de Sudamericana en Buenos Aires en 1967. Un libro de lujo. --From Publisher

Esta nueva edicion conmemorativa a cargo de la Real Academia Espanola en conjuncion con la Asociacion de academias de la lengua espanola pone en manos del lector la novela de Garcia Marquez consagrada ya como un clasico de la literatura universal. Aunque esta edicion tiene el merito de compilar una serie de ensayos de escritores de la talla de Carlos Fuentes, Vargas Llosa, Alvaro Mutis, Claudio Guillen, entre otros; una extensa bibliografia y un utilisimo glosario, el lector que se inicia en esta obra deberia complementar su lectura con la insuperable edicion critica de Catedra que trae, ademas, notas a pie de paginas, ausente desgraciadamente en la presente edicion. De todas maneras esta es una edicion muy cuidada que limpia las asperezas, erratas y expresiones dudosas de previas ediciones.

I first read Cien años de soledad during my last year of high school, and I have read it several times again since then. Everytime I read it, I remember the words of my literature professor, after he asked us to buy the book: " I envy you all so much, so much - he said- because nothing compares to the feeling of reading Cien años for the first time. I wish I could feel like that again." He was right.

This is a magical book, and this anniversary edition one that deserves a place in the library of all those who love Gabo.

Format: Hardcover
Inicia la historia con la boda de Ursula Iguaran y Jose Arcadio Buendia, la busqueda de un pueblo ideal donde vivir, la angustia de la espera de los hijos, angustia debido a la supersticion ya que eran primos y les habian dicho que sus hijos podrian nacer con cola de cerdo!...

Una historia completamente llena de cultura latinoamericana, donde la supersticion, hechiceria, leyendas, herencias, costumbres y etc's no fallan. Esta edicion viene acompañada entre otras cosas de un arbol genealogico que te es de gran ayuda, ya que despues de algunas generaciones de Jose Arcadios y Aurelianos.. pues es sabio recurrir a el.

Siempre he admirado la manera tan descriptiva de Garcia Marquez, pero con este titulo desde la primera persona hasta la ultima, arboles, esquinas y lo que gusten nombrar a todo se le otorga una historia, es un maestro!

Excellent novel; good in English translation, better in this (Spanish) original. Special "Royal Institute of Spanish Literature" edition contains critical works on the novel. Good buy, good book, great story.

Format: Hardcover
In this, his magnum opus detailing the historical arc of the Buendia family in the fictional near-Caribbean town of Macondo, Marquez is stupefyingly inventive and constantly violates the basic storytelling principle of "show, don't tell." That's a good thing, because if he didn't a book where so much happens would be three thousand pages long, in which case I wouldn't have the stamina to read it in the original. Reading alternately in Spanish and English, I found that, in addition to increasing my vocabulary of fancypants literary Spanish by scads of rarely useful words that I've mostly forgotten since, I kept thinking, "Well I thought I was following what was going on pretty well, but what I think just happened is too weird to make sense, so I must be wrong." But then I'd read the English version to find out that yes, everyone in town *had* fallen ill with a variety of insomnia causing progressive amnesia, or that an orphan girl *had* shown up at the house with a bag bearing the incessant jumping and clicking bones of her parents, or whatever. That's magical realism for you.

I wasn't very good with literary Spanish when I started, but Marquez consistently rewarded my slow, dogged efforts to understand what was going on by putting something funny or amazing in almost every paragraph. At first I found it infuriating that he decided to only use two first names for all the generations of male members of the Buendia family, but I gradually got used to it. The only thing that bothered me a bit in the end was that he spent so much time on the clan's long, circling decline into the dust, and I didn't enjoy inhabiting their lingering, interminable decrepitude quite so much as some others apparently have.

This is a (seriously) great novel... one of the strongest reasons to learn Spanish.... If you don't like it, don't blame the novel... Blame the times you are living in... Times, indeed, blind to true beauty and greatness...

I love to read. I bought this book because of the author, and that called my attention the title "Cien anos de Soledad", I wanted to know what this title means and how Gabriel Garcia Marquez could write without living that long, it was amazing the way he described all the situations that make me feel that I was part of the novel.I ussually read at night and while reading this book I just wanted to go to the end and read to 4 or 5 am. I will recommend this book very hardly
