The short story itself is quite typical of Marquez - wonderful writing and evoking in great detail, the atmosphere of a faraway culture in times past. However, this is a short story which is sold at the price of a novel, albeit padded out with pages of descriptions of all Marquez's other writings. I would have been happier if there had been more than one short story, but as it stands, it seems to be cashing in on the passing of a great writer.

The part that made me the most happy was how "One-Hundred years of Solitude" got referenced. This is a collection of short stories that is an easy read. The writing style is such that you can "see" what the author is saying. This may also be one of the most strange banterings between man and wife I have seen.

Even though Marquez considered it as his best novel, I do not think it can be compared with his 100 Years of Solitude or Love in the Time of Cholera. No matter what Marquez's works are "magical".

A very sad story that is also frequently funny written in the unique Marquez style but without magic realism. Totally rooted in reality, exposing the injustice and ingratitude of states, the dignity of individuals even under deep deprivation and the power of hope, often foolish hope, this book is a masterpiece.

Excellent short stories - highly entertaining.......unique Latin characters who enrich simple cultural settings. A few stories share background with his masterpiece "100 Years Of Solitude".

These stories open slowly like flowers and stay with you like dreams. A wonderful experience.
