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 Buendiá 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!
