One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Written in a magical realist and somewhat non- linear style, this Latin American classic tells the story of the fictional town of Macondo through the history of the Buendia family. Universal themes such as life and death, wealth and poverty, and love and desire are central to the novel. It was somewhat difficult for me to follow, as there was a wide range of events, from unusual calamities to more fortunate experiences, involving many characters throughout the history of the family, but overall it was an enjoyable novel and my first time reading Garcia Marquez.
