Falling For A Boss dMedal called family life It taught me that sadness and love go hand in hand and that life is easy and complicated at the same time It taught me that many wishes actually come true but never in the way we expect and most often with a catch It taught me that sun and rain follow each other even though we might have to wait for four years eleven months and twoays for rain to stop falling sometimes It taught me that there are as many recipes for love as there are lovers in the world and that human beings are lazy and energetic good and bad young and old ugly and beautiful honest and Basics of successful agriculture in the tropics dishonest happy and sad all at the same time together and lonelyIt taught me that we are forever longing for what weo not have until we get what we long for Then we start longing for what we lost when our Regenerating Agriculture: Policies and Practice for Sustainability and Self Reliance dreams came trueThis novel opened up the world of absurdities to me andragged me in like no other In each member of the Buend a family I recognise some relation or myself or both Macondo is the world in miniature and wherever I go it follows me like a shadow It is not rich peaceful or beautiful It is just Macondo No no lessMy favourite book I They Hear Me Crying Now! (The True Story of Child Abuse Continued) - Child Abuse True Stories don t know There are so many But Ion t think any other could claim to be loved than this one So I know that I m supposed to like this book because it is a classic and by the same author who wrote Love in the Time of Cholera Unfortunately I just think it is unbelievably boring with a jagged plot that seems interminable Sure the language is interesting and the first line is the stuff of University English courses Sometimes I think books get tagged with the classic label because some academics read them and Mobilizing Islam didn t understand and so they hailed these books as genius These same academics then make a sport of lookingown their noses at readers who BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1 (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) *1: Billionaires Secret Baby (BWWM Secret Baby Romance Contemporary Romance) don t like these books for the very same reasons If this all sounds too specific yes I had this conversation with a professor of mineI know that other people love this book and power to them I ve tried to read it all the way through threeifferent times and never made it past 250 pages before I get so bored keeping up with all the births eaths magical events and mythical legends I ll put it this way I on t like this book for the same reason that I never took up smoking If I have to force myself to like it what s the point When I start coughing and hacking on the first cigarette that is my body telling me this isn t good for me and I should uit right there When I start nodding off on the second page of One Hundred Years of Solitude that is my mind trying to tell me I should find a better way to pass my time I guarantee that 95% of you will hate this book and at least 70% of you will hate it enough to not finish it but I loved it Guess I was just in the mood for it Here s how it breaks Alien Zookeeper's Abduction downAMAZING THINGS I can literally feel new wrinkles spreading across the surface of my brain when I read this guy He s so wicked smart that there s no chance he s completely sane His adjectives andescriptions are 100% PERFECT and yet entirely nonsensical After reading three chapters it starts making sense and that s when you realize you re probably crazy too And you are We all areThe magical realism style of the book is DELICIOUS Sure it s an epic tragedy following a long line of familial insanity but that Tyral (Mated to the Alien, doesn t stop the people from eatingirt coming back from the ead spreading a plague of contagious insomnia or enjoying a nice thunderstorm of yellow flowers It s all presented in such a natural light that you think Of course Of course he grows auatic plants in his false teeth Now why wouldn t heThis guy is the epitome of uniue Give me a single sentence ANY SENTENCE the man has ever written and I will recognize it Nobody writes like him Also his sentences average about 1438 words each so pretty much it s either him or FaulknerREASONS WHY MOST OF YOU WILL HATE THIS BOOK HATE THIS BOOK have to engage every ounce of my mental ability just to understand what the is going on Most people who read for relaxation and entertainment will want to send Maruez hate mail Also there are approximately 20 main characters and about 4 names that they all share I realize that s probably realistic in Hispanic cultures of the era but SERIOUSLY by the time you get to the sixth character named Aureliano you ll have to raw yourself a iagram Not even the classic Russians suffer from as much name confusion as this guyOn an uber isturbing note Maruez has once again as he The Logic of Self-Destruction did in Love in the Time of Cholera written a grown man having sex with a girl as young as 9 which is pretty much 1 on my list of Things That Make You Go EWW He makes Lolita look like Polyanna on the virtue chart Note to authors You give ONE of your characters a

Cien años e soledadMagical realism has been one of my favorite genres of reading ever since I Living with Lynching: African American Lynching Plays, Performance, and Citizenship, 1890-1930 discovered Isabel Allende and the Latina amiga writers when I was in high school Taking events from ordinary One Hundred Years of Solitude is an absolute ground breaking book it is intelligent creative and full of powerful anecdotal wisdom Iteservedly won the noble prize for literature But how enjoyable is it How readable is itGabriel Garc a M ruez plays around with reality itself he plays around with the limitations of fiction he uses elements of magic of the fantastic to give voice to things that could never be said uite as effectively in normal terms he breaks through realism and establishes his own original style He Witch-Hunt Narrative did nothing short of launching a new mode of literary address magical realism He wasn t the first writer too such a thing though his writing was the first to attract criticism which in effect allowed for it to be My Hero Academia Series Volume 1 - 20 Books Collection Set by Kouhei Horikoshi defined and recognised For me the strongest element of the book resides in its inherent pessimism with its unfortunate understanding that history can and will repeat itself All good intentions go awry indeed One Hundred Years of Solitude challenges the progress or lack thereof of society It creates a self contained history in its isolated framework which arguably reflects the nature of mankind or at least it echoes Columbian history with its liberal history in the face of imperialism No matter how much we want to change the world or how much we believe in a revolution or a new political ideal these good intentions often become warped when faced with the horrors of war and bloodshed Nothing really changes There s noenying the success of M ruez s epic there s no Alcohol Addiction Recovery denying its ingenuity I really enjoyed parts of the novel but it was awfullyifficult to read uncomfortably so The prose is extremely loose and free flowing to the point where it feels like thought it s like a torrent of verbal Mars Journey diarrhoea that feels like it will never end Charactersie eerily similar characters take their place within the story and the narrative continues until the well has completely run Beating the Odds - From shocking childhood abuse to the embrace of a loving family, one mans true story of courage and redemption dry of any actual life It is pushed so terribly far one hundred years to be precise And that s my biggest problem I m a sentimentalist I like to feel when I read I like to be moved either to anger or excitement I want to invest in the characters I want to care about their lives and I want to be provoked by their actions M ruez s approach meant that this was impossible too so It s a huge story told in just a few hundred pages It s sweeps across the lives of the characters some exceedingly important characters in the story are introduced and Climax (Double Alchemy, die a very short time after to establish the sheer futility of human existence and effort M ruez tried toemonstrate M ruez writes against European tradition and the legacy of colonialism he creates something totally new which is becoming increasingly hard to o Although I o appreciate this novel I Roots and Blossoms did not enjoy reading it as much as I could haveoneFacebook Twitter Insta Academia One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Maruez is a tremendous piece of literature It s not an easy read You re not going to turn its pages like you would the latest John Grisham novel or The DaVinci Code You have to read each page soaking up every word immersing yourself in the imagery Mr Maruez says that he tells story his grandmother used to tell stories to him with a brick face that s useful remember brick face That s to remember reading because that is certainly the tone the book takes If you can get through the first 50 pages you will enjoy it But those 50 are a The Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom doozy It s hard to keep track of the characters at times mainly because they are all named Jose Arcadio or Aureliano but a family tree at the beginning of my edition was helpful The book follows the Buendia family from the founding of fictional Macondo to a fitting and fulfilling conclusion The family goes through wars marriages many births andeaths as well as several technological advances and invasions by gypsies and banana companies trust me the banana company is important You begin to realize as matriarch Ursula Shakespeare does that as time passes timeoes not really pass for this family but turns in a circle And as the circle closes on Macondo and the Buendias you realize that Mr Maruez has taken you on a remarkable journey in his literature Recommended but be prepared for a hard read i remember the BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) day i stopped watching cartoons an episode of thundercats in which a few of the cats were trapped in some kind of superbubble thing and it hit me that being cartoons the characters could just be erased and rerawn outside the bubble or could just fly away or tunnel their way out or teleport or Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy do whatever really they wanted afterall they were line and color in a world of line and color now this applies to any work of fiction i mean Cervantes could ve just written Don uixote out of any perilous situation but it just feltifferent with a lowest common Caveman Alien’s

think had Solitude been structured as a large collection of interconnected short stories kinda like a magical realism Winesberg Ohio it would ve worked much better this is one of the most beloved books of all time and i m not so arrogantamn close to iscount the word of all these people although I o have gothboy DFJ and Borges on my side a strong argument for or against anything and not so blind to see the joy this brings to so many people i fully understand it s a powerful piece of work but i really Talking About Trees don t get it and i aggressively recommend The Adventures and Misadventures of Maroll to any and all who find Solitude to be the end all and be all Mystical and captivatingOne Hundred Years of Solitude by Nobel laureate Gabriel Garc a M ruez first published in 1967 in his native Colombia and then first published in English in 1970 is a uniue literary experience overwhelming in its virtuosity and magnificent in scopeI recall my review of Tolstoy s War and Peace trying toescribe a book like it and realizing there are no other books like it it is practically a genre unto itself That said One Hundred Years of Solitude is a masterpiece of narrative ability and is itself uniue as a statement but reminiscent of many other great books Pasternak s Doctor Zhivago Lowry s Under the Volcano Buck s The Good Earth and Joyce s Ulysses were the works that I thought of while reading but no Alien Contact doubt this is a one of a kindUsing all of the literaryevices I have ever learned and making up many as he went along Garc a M ruez established a new epoch of The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past descriptive resonance Magic realism and hyperbole abound in his fantastic history of the mythical town of Macondo separated by mountains and a swamp road from everything else and of the Buend a family whose lifeblood was theramatic heart of the village from inception until the fateful endGarc a M ruez employs incestuous and repetitive family situations to emphasize his chronicle and a Bibliographia Aethiopica II dynamic characterization that is labyrinthine in its complexity Dark humor walks the ancient halls of the ancestral mansion home along with the ghosts of those who have come before Incredibly Garc a M ruez ties it all together into a complete and prophetically sound ending that breathes like poetry to the finishFinally I must concede that this review is wholly inadeuate This is a book that must be read 2018 I had a conversation about this book recently and I was asked what was the bigealwhy was this so special It had been a while since I had read but my response was that after turning the last page I was struck Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women dumb had to walk the earth metaphorically for a feways to gather my thoughts on what I had read really than that what I had experienced I Read Alot Of Books read alot of books a book that smacks me like that eserves some reflectionAnother indicator to Me And This Is Also Subjective Is and this is also subjective is I have thought about this book freuently since I read a book and enjoy it was entertained and escaped for a while into the writer s world and then I finish and write a review slap a 3 star on it and go to the next book There are some books years later that I have to refresh my memory who wrote that what was it about Not so with 100 years *Like so many other five star ratings this one has stayed with me and I think about Macondo sometimes *so many other five star ratings this one has stayed with me and I think about Macondo sometimes can see the weeds and vines growing up through the hardwood floors This is a special book More like A Hundred Years of Torture I read this partly in a misguided attempt to expand my literary horizons and partly because my uncle was a big fan of Gabriel Garcia Maruez Then again he also used to re read Ulysses for fun which just goes to show that you should never take book advice from someone whose I is than 30 points higher than your ownI have patience for a lot of excesses like verbiage and chocolate but not for 5000 pages featuring three generations of people with the same names I finally tore out the family tree at the beginning of the book and used it as a bookmark To be fair the book isn t actually 5000 pages but also to be fair the endlessly interwoven stories of bizarre exploits and fantastical phenomena make it seem like it is The whole time I read it I thought This must be what it s like to be stoned Well actually most of the time I was just trying to keep the characters straight The rest of the time I was wondering if I was the victim of odorless paint fumes However I think I was simply the victim of Maruez s brand of magical realism which I can take in short stories but find a bit much to swallow in a long novel Again to be fair this novel is lauded and loved by many and I can sort of see why A shimmering panoramic of a village s history would appeal to those who enjoy tragicomedy laced heavily with fantasy It s just way too heavily laced for me What is your favourite book mum How many times have my children asked me that growing up with a mother who spends most of her time reading to them alone for work for pleasure or looking for new books in bookstores wherever we happen to beI can t answer that there are so many books I love and in ifferent waysJust name one that comes to mindAnd I said without really knowing why and without thinkingOne Hundred Years Of SolitudeWhyBecauseThis novel taught me that chaos and order are two sides of the same.
