Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A dense jungle of magic and literary gusto, this book pulls you in and engulfs you with its richness and beauty. Saying it is a story of a family is like saying the New Testament is a book about a carpenter. Following the family here reveals the history of several generations, and the passions, thoughts, and myths of a labyrinth of people, related and not. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a gifted writer, and nowhere does he write with the fervor that he does in One Hundred Years of Solitude, a pleasurable ride unmatched in modern literature. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Más lucidez, ingenio, sabiduría y poesía de lo que se espera de cien años de novelistas, y mucho más de un solo hombre”. 
Washington Post Book World

When I started to read this book with 20 years, I simply flabbergasted.

Para ser franco, en realidad no soy muy buen crítico de libros ni mucho menos. Simplemente estoy de acuerdo con muchas de las personas que catalogan a esta novela como una obra cumbre de la literatura hispana. He leído tres veces este libro y debo confesar que cada vez me ha interesado más, me ha atrapado más. En conclusión: esta obra se ha convertido en mi biblia. La recomiendo para todos aquellos lectores que se consideren dignos de leer un libro que es más que una novela; es una gran historia que yo considero muy real y explico el porque: analizando muchas notas periodísticas realizadas a su autor e investigando sobre la vida del mismo, uno puede notar las "coincidencias" que hay entre las historias de cada personaje y la historia del mismo García Márquez y todo su entorno (su pueblo, su familia). Además, realizando estas investigaciones, me encontré con la siguiente declaración de la esposa de "Gabo": "cuando estaba escribiendo 'Cien años de soledad', y llegado el momento de la muerte del Coronel Aureliano Buendía, para poder escribirla pasó una semana de muy mal humor, encerrado en su escritorio. Sólo bajaba para cenar. Hasta que un día me enfrentó y con profunda tristeza me dijo 'ya lo maté'". Se nota en esta declaración que es tan profunda la relación entre el escritor y los personajes que para aquella persona que conoce esta historia, les puedo asegurar que le apasiona mucho más la lectura de este libro.

Format: Paperback
I'm not the smartest man on the block, but I consider myself to be fairly well-read. Usually, when I finish a novel I think about it for a brief while and then look for my next book to read.
CIEN ANOS DE SOLEDAD was a novel that when I finished reading it (I read it in Spanish) I automatically began with page one.
It is one of the most enthralling, awe-inspiring novels that I've ever read. Garcia Márquez es un genio.
READ THIS NOVEL! (You may even want to read it twice).
(Leete esta novela, que bien vale la pena. Es impresionante e inolvidable.)

Format: Paperback
Este es un libro fascinante, lleno de realismo mágico, aventuras, drama y pasión. Un libro con el que se puede identificar cualquier latinoamericano por todo lo que tiene de cotidiano y de supersticioso. La historia tiene ciertas similitudes con la Biblia (Génesis, Exodo, Evangelios) , con las Mil y Una Noches y otras literaturas; lo que hacen que leerla le parezca a uno muy familiar aparte de que el lenguaje que utiliza García Márquez es muy sencillo y cotidiano. Nadie que la lea olvidará jamás a Ursula, o a Fernanda del Carpio, a Remedios la Bella o a cualquiera de los Aurelianos o José Arcadios. Es un libro adictivo para aquellos que dan sus primeros pasos en la buena literatura.

Después del Quijote, la mejor novela escrita en español, pero también la mejor novela contemporanea de nuestros tiempos. Es por eso, impresindible leerla.

15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Fernanda Acosta on December 27, 1999
Format: Paperback
No cabe duda que en Cien años de Soledad, nuestra imaginacion se pone a jugar con el tiempo, los colores, olores, sensaciones, personajes y lugares, pero leyendo entre lineas, escudriñando entre las palabras, no solo se encuentra la magia caracteristica de la cultura latinoamericana, sino tambien su tragedia social y politica: la tirania, la dictadura, el liderazgo populista, la alienacion y perdida de lo nuestro a traves del tiempo, la soledad. Si se mantiene la mente alerta y se tiene una intensa suspicacia, Cien años de Soledad ofrece mas de lo que aparenta ofrecer. Se descubra lo que se descubra en ella, esta es una obra que una vez leida dificilmente se olvida.

Format: Paperback
Quien dice que Cien años de soledad no es más que realismo mágico, tiene una visión muy restringida de la literatura. Es una épica, la historia de la humanidad, una historia que atrapa al lector desde la primer línea. La novela que terminó con el regionalismo y refleja siempre a la sociedad latinoamericana como un todo, influida por el mundo capitalista estadounidense. Un libro en el que un inventor fracasado, un coronel antiheroico, una madre de familia resignada y demás personajes estereotipados del mundo actual forman parte de la realidad de la que el autor hace burla, a tal grado de sentir compasión por sus propios personajes, por la suma de esfuerzos siempre inútlies por hacer bien las cosas, a causa de la falta de amor, a la que se hace referencia durante toda la novela. El personaje principal es Macondo, el pueblo mismo, que sobrevive al olvido por cien años de fracasos personales y acontecimientos fantásticos, para finalmente desaparecer sin rastro alguno, al igual que toda su historia. Excelente novela, es EL libro, narrado con el excelente lenguage poético tan propio de GGM.

Having a soft corner for classification, one can classify everything. The books also can be classified. For example, into good and bad ones. In this case "100 Years of Solitude" is a good book. Or they can be classifies into great and good. Therefore "100 Years of Solitude" is considered a great book. Or into those, which got a Nobel Prize and those, which did not. Marques got Nobel Prize for his book "100 Years of Solitude". But to classify the contents of this book and to tell what is this book about...? it's next to impossible. It is about small town Macondo on the bank of the river, which runs its clear water in the white-stone polished bed. It's about the world of Latin America, quite a new world, that some things even do not have a name, and have to be pointed with the finger... About six generations of Buandia family... About love, loneliness and death. About endless cyclic recurrence and reiteration of love, loneliness and death. Reiteration, but already in other people, other characters, words and other life. In the life, which is impossible without love, loneliness and death. What amazes most in the book - is the great number of people, destinies and plots. Just imagine - the talented Shakespeare specialist made up his mind to summarize each Shakespeare play in one page. He has to carefully preserve grandeur, language, tragedy and humor. He selects two-three best quotations, unites the characters of all plays together as relatives or citizens of one town. He replaces castles and palaces by streets, where simple white houses sink in the heat under almond-trees for half a year, and for the rest of the year they sail in the rain like ships in an autumn sea. Replaces swords and man's sleeveless jackets by simple homemade clothes.Read more ›
