One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez

One Hundred Years of Solitude is not necessarily a difficult book to read. Is it ethereal? Yes. Poetic? Absolutely. But difficult? Not so much. A better word might be "convoluted." Many of the characters have the same name and behave in similar ways, which can be confusing. Simply put, it’s a book you have to pay attention to. But it was published in the 1970s (so, relatively recently), and its brand of magical realism is as unique as it is compelling.
