Revised 28 March 2012 Huh Oh Oh man WowI just had the weirdest dreamThere was this little town right And everybody had like the same two names And there was this guy who lived under a tree and a lady who ate dirt and some other guy who just made little gold fishes all the time And sometimes it rained and sometimes it didn t and and there were fire ants everywhere and some girl got carried off into the sky by her laundryWow That was messed upI need some coffeeThe was roughly how I felt after reading this book This is really the only time I ve ever read a book and thought You know this book would be awesome if I were stoned And I don t even know if being stoned works on books that wayGabriel Garcia Maruez which is such a fun name to say is one of those Writers You Should Read You know the type they re the ones that everyone claims to have read but no one really has The ones you put in your online dating profile so that people will think you re smarter than you really are You get some kind of intellectual bonus points or something the kind of highbrow cachet that you just don t get from reading someone like Stephen King or Clive BarkerMaruez was one of the first writers to use magical realism a style of fantasy wherein the fantastic and the unbelievable are treated as everyday occurrences While I m sure it contributed to the modern genre of urban fantasy which also mixes the fantastic with the real magical realism doesn t really go out of its way to point out the weirdness and the bizarrity These things just happen A girl floats off into the sky a man lives far longer than he should and these things are mentioned in passing as though they were perfectly normalIn this case Colonel Aureliano Buendia has seventeen illegitimate sons all named Aureliano by seventeen different women and they all come to his house on the same day Remedios the Beauty is a girl so beautiful that men just waste away in front of her but she doesn t even notice The twins Aureliano Segundo and Jose Arcadio Segundo may have in fact switched identities when they were children but no one knows for sure not even them In the small town of Macondo weird things happen all the time and nobody really notices Or if they do notice that for example the town s patriarch has been living for the last twenty years tied to a chestnut tree nobody thinks anything is at all unusual about itThis of course is a great example of Dream Logic the weird seems normal to a dreamer and you have no reason to uestion anything that s happening around you Or if you do notice that something is wrong but no one else seems to be worried about it then you try to pretend like coming to work dressed only in a pair of spangly stripper briefs and a cowboy hat is perfectly normalAnother element of dreaminess that pervades this book is that there s really no story here at least not in the way that we have come to expect Reading this book is kind of like a really weird game of The Sims it s about a family that keeps getting bigger and bigger and something happens to everybody So the narrator moves around from one character to another giving them their moment for a little while and then it moves on to someone else very smoothly and without much fanfare There s very little dialogue so the story can shift very easily and it often doesEach character has their story to tell but you re not allowed to linger for very long on any one of them before Garcia shows you what s happening to someone else The result is one long continuous narrative about this large and ultimately doomed family wherein the Buendia family itself is the main character and the actual family members are secondary to thatIt was certainly an interesting reading experience but it took a while to get through I actually kept falling asleep as I read it which is unusual for me But perhaps that s what Garcia would have wanted to happen By reading his book I slipped off into that non world of dreams and illusions where the fantastic is commonplace and ice is something your father takes you to discover Arcadio imposed obligatory military service for men over eighteen declared to be public property any animals walking the streets after six in the evening and made men who were overage wear red armbands He seuestered Father Nicanor in the parish house under pain of execution and prohibited him from saying mass or ringing the bells unless it was for a Liberal victory In order that no one would doubt the severity of his aims he ordered a firing suad organized in the suare and had it shoot a scarecrow At first no one

One Hundred Years of Solitude is an absolute ground breaking book it is intelligent creative and full of powerful anecdotal wisdom It deservedly won the noble prize for literature But how enjoyable is it How readable is itGabriel Garc a M ruez plays around with reality itself he plays around with the limitations of fiction he uses elements of magic of the fantastic to give voice to things that could never be said uite as effectively in normal terms he breaks through realism and establishes his own original style He did nothing short of launching a new mode of literary address magical realism He wasn t the first writer to do such a thing though his writing was the first to attract criticism which in effect allowed for it to be defined and recognised For me the strongest element of the book resides in its inherent pessimism with its unfortunate understanding that history can and will repeat itself All good intentions go awry indeed One Hundred Years of Solitude challenges the progress or lack thereof of society It creates a self contained history in its isolated framework which arguably reflects the nature of mankind or at least it echoes Columbian history with its liberal history in the face of imperialism No matter how much we want to change the world or how much we believe in a revolution or a new political ideal these good intentions often become warped when faced with the horrors of war and bloodshed Nothing really changes There s no denying the success of M ruez s epic there s no denying its ingenuity I really enjoyed parts of the novel but it was awfully difficult to read uncomfortably so The prose is extremely loose and free flowing to the point where it feels like thought it s like a torrent of verbal diarrhoea that feels like it will never end Characters die eerily similar characters take their place within the story and the narrative continues until the well has completely run dry of any actual life It is pushed so terribly far one hundred years to be precise And that s my biggest problem I m a sentimentalist I like to feel when I read I like to be moved either to anger or excitement I want to invest in the characters I want to care about their lives and I want to be provoked by their actions M ruez s approach meant that this was impossible to do so It s a huge story told in just a few hundred pages It s sweeps across the lives of the characters some exceedingly important characters in the story are introduced and die a very short time after to establish the sheer futility of human existence and effort M ruez tried to demonstrate M ruez writes against European tradition and the legacy of colonialism he creates something totally new which is becoming increasingly hard to do Although I do appreciate this novel I did not enjoy reading it as much as I could have doneFacebook Twitter Insta Academia

More like A Hundred Years of Torture I read this partly in a misguided attempt to expand my literary horizons and partly because my uncle was a big fan of Gabriel Garcia Maruez Then again he also used to re read Ulysses for fun which just goes to show that you should never take book advice from someone whose I is than 30 points higher than your ownI have patience for a lot of excesses like verbiage and chocolate but not for 5000 pages featuring three generations of people with the same names I finally tore out the family tree at the beginning of the book and used it as a bookmark To be fair the book isn t actually 5000 pages but also to be fair the endlessly interwoven stories of bizarre exploits and fantastical phenomena make it seem like it is The whole time I read it I thought This must be what it s like to be stoned Well actually most of the time I was just trying to keep the characters straight The rest of the time I was wondering if I was the victim of odorless paint fumes However I think I was simply the victim of Maruez s brand of magical realism which I can take in short stories but find a bit much to swallow in a long novel Again to be fair this novel is lauded and loved by many and I can sort of see why A shimmering panoramic of a village s history would appeal to those who enjoy tragicomedy laced heavily with fantasy It s just way too heavily laced for me
