An acknowledged masterpiece, this is the story of seven generations of the Buendia family and of Macondo, the town they have built. Though little more than a settlement surrounded by mountains, Macondo has its wars and disasters, even its wonders and miracles.

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.
