Editorial Reviews 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.


“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

Customer Reviews

One of the best books written originally in Spanish by Nobel Prize Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
I read this book about 40 years ago and I could not remember the details so I read it again (both times in Spanish).
I had this book in english paperback, but I thought I read the book in its original tongue.

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.

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 ›

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.

Format: Paperback
I've had this book in my collection for the last 5 years. I tried to pick it up when I was 20 but I'm glad I waited. A couple of nights ago I couldn't sleep and went to my study to pick it up. I haven't slept since.

Cien años de soledad is a literary triumph. It tells us the story of the Buendías, the founders of Macondo, a small village somewhere in South America (my guess being Colombia, of course). García Márquez takes the reader into the lives and deaths and everything in between of this singular family and how their lives, though so magical and tragic at times, relate to yours and mine. The language and diction are just perfect (though I recommend a good Spanish dictionary because some words can be tricky), making you travel to this very remote place and experience ice, magnets, telegraphs, trains and bananas for the very first time.

This is without a doubt, one of the best books you'll ever read. Get a piece of paper, write down the family tree (because it will get confusing) and enjoy the ride.

"...porque las estirpes condenadas a cien años de soledad no tienen una segunda oportunidad sobre la tierra."

This is a wonderful book that I have read in book form several times. After I downloaded it in ebook form I was appalled at the frequent uncorrected scanning errors. An "o" frequently scans as an "a", an "i" with an accent mark as an l, etc. It's obvious that no one proofread this book after it was scanned. Amazon might tell you it's the fault of the publisher but they are still selling a defective product. This is one of the best books ever written in Spanish. Doesn't it deserve better treatment than this? Not to mention the readers. The one star is for the scanning errors, not the narrative.
