One of the 20th century's enduring works, One Hundred Years of Solitude is a widely beloved and acclaimed novel known throughout the world, and the ultimate achievement in a Nobel Prize–winning career.The novel tells the story of the rise and fall of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. It is a rich and brilliant chronicle of life and death, and the tragicomedy of humankind. In the noble, ridiculous, beautiful, and tawdry story of the Buendía family, one sees all of humanity, just as in the history, myths, growth, and decay of Macondo, one sees all of Latin America.Love and lust, war and revolution, riches and poverty, youth and senility -- the variety of life, the endlessness of death, the search for peace and truth -- these universal themes dominate the novel. Whether he is describing an affair of passion or the voracity of capitalism and the corruption of government, Gabriel García Márquez always writes with the simplicity, ease, and purity that are the mark of a master.Alternately reverential and comical, One Hundred Years of Solitude weaves the political, personal, and spiritual to bring a new consciousness to storytelling. Translated into dozens of languages, this stunning work is no less than an accounting of the history of the human race.

Sto lat samotności to książka, która bardzo przypadła mi do gustu, czyli jest pełna dramatów i dodatkowo jest bardzo dobrze napisana (a może raczej nieziemsko). Przy zawiłości fabuły czytało się ją niezwykle łatwo i przyjemnie, chociaż lubiłam pomagać sobie drzewem genealogicznym, który stworzyłam. ...

Amazing. The solitude that lingered through six generations. And the ending could not have been better. Loved it, but a little gloomy, so if you are a happy go lucky person, or not that sentimental or introvertish, you might find this boring. But I would say you find that out for yourself. Definitel...

I really enjoyed this book. At first, I had a hard time getting involved, but before I knew it, I just couldn't put the book down. I was insanely confused with the characters since they all have close to the same name. I enjoyed the dynamics of the characters and how they each played a role in the g...

1.5 Sto lat samotności
Nie jest to moje pierwsze spotkanie z prozą Marqueza, kilka lat temu zachwyciła mnie lektura Miłości w czasach zarazy, niedawno także podobne wrażenie wywarła na mnie Kronika zapowiedzianej śmierci. Przyszedł czas, aby zmierzyć się z jego opus magnum. I, niestety, było to zderzenie bardzo bolesne, t...
