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.
Essentially a tale in the rise and the demise of a hamlet in Latin America that could easily represent a multitude of such hamlets during the 1970s. These towns not only faced oppression from their own government but by US corporate business as well. The book was worth two close readings.
