here's my short and painfully unreliable review of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's long titled novel. all his novel titles are long, now that i think of it. why is that.
this is such a masterpiece. The plot itself and the unfolding events may not be impressive at times, but Gabriel Garcia Marquez's method of storytelling is beautiful, nonetheless. You can feel his wisdom passing through the lines and i can imagine him telling this story while painting, or in a dull morning whilst drinking coffee. He is fantastic.
|anfd then this is the book i am currently reading. it has short stories. those, however, fail to mount up to the beauty of the book cover. sorry.|
