One Hundred Years of Solitude Read Along



I'm joining in with the "One Hundred Years of Solitude" read along, which starts on March 6th.  It's hosted by Silvia Cachia and A Great Book Study

You can find all the info HERE 

More great information plus a TED talk can be found HERE

I'm really excited to have this opportunity to read this book within a group setting.  It is on Master List of 52 Classics that I would like to read.  I got utterly far behind as I didn't read a single classic in 2019!  

From Amazon:  One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendi√° family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad and alive with unforgettable men and women—brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul—this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction.



The ladies have the read-along starting on the author's birthday and it ends on the date of his death. March 6th-April 17th! 





Here is a newspaper article about Gabriel Garcia Marquez's passing in 2014 which described him as "A giant of 20th century literature": Conjurer of Literary Magic 





"There are hits, and then there are smash hits, and then there are rocket ships to Mars—One Hundred Years of Solitude would qualify as the last."

  1. Glad to have you join us, Sherry.
    BTW, is that Master List something you came up with yourself, or is it from somewhere else?

    1. Thank you! The Master List is for the Classics Club! I made the list around 2 years ago? They are the classics that I would like to read. It's a five-year list - but I think it will take me longer unless I get a whole lot more focused! https://theclassicsclubblog.wordpress.com/
