It felt like 100 years passed while reading this book. I was never really pulled in to the story and the characters' names were so similar that I started to get confused. If I wasn't reading it for a class I would've given up 30 pages in. Read at the risk of your own boredom.
I had to read 100 Years of Solitude for my 12th grade AP English class, and it was surprisingly better than I expected. I loved the way that all of the different plots intertwined into the story of the Buendia family. It's not a fast read, but it's well worth it.
