  3. I think the end quote wrong in this video. In my translation it says “because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth” which changes the meaning entirely. Anyone else catch this?

  4. A lot of people hate this book by how complicated it is but it’s just stunning. It’s one of my favorites. I just love it so much.

  5. So,at this particular moment when i'm writing this,I've just finished the book.
    This book is seriously entangled and full with magic,superstitions and war.Also,many other themes such as love,family,rebellion and of course solitude has been covered with so much literary beauty that you will end up wanting more of every scene.
    Reading this has been a tiresome but adventurous experience.You surely will have to go back few pages sometimes as there are so many characters and almost everyone has their own story.I might read it again after some time as it is still not all clear in my head.
    So,yes,this book deserves the respect and love it gets I personally think everyone should read this book once in a lifetime.

  6. "Where no one will be able to decide for others how they die. Where love will prove true, and happiness be possible."

    Wow. Beautifully said.
    That's exactly the kind of world I want. ❤💖❤

  7. "Coronel Aureliano Buendia promoved 32 armed rebellions and lost all."

    Man… in life i am the Coronel Buendia. Great caracter. It is not a easy book…

  8. Whenever they said Sofia Vergara and Shakira are the only famous Colombians I always felt there was this author who wrote that great book but couldn’t remember him. Finally found it

  9. I read it after this recommendation I am blown away. This book, and certainly this author, is one of a kind. His unique storytelling and storyline keeps the reader attached to the book. He makes you feel every single emotion the chacters feel- anger, happiness, sadness and of course solitude.

  10. Difficult to read and comprehend for an Anglo Saxon like me, although well worth the effort. An easier and possibly more enjoyable read of the same genre and from the same author would be ‘Of Love And Other Demons’ and/or ‘Love In The Time Of Cholera’. And a trip to the Caribbean coastal city of Cartagena will help, to give a sense of daily life in the context of magical realism.
