Length: 448 pages
Setting: Macondo, probably starting in the 1800s
Interest: It was part of the BBC’s The Big Read
Summary: We follow the lives of the Beundia family. They founded the village of Macondo in the jungle, far from other people. They are visited only by a tribe of gypsies who bring wonders from the rest of the world.
Final thoughts: I just couldn’t get into this book. I was over 50 pages into the book, and I just didn’t care about the characters. In fact, I had a hard time telling everyone apart, mainly because I didn’t care to keep them straight in my head.
Title comes from: I don’t know because I didn’t read enough of the book.
Reading challenges fulfilled: none since I didn’t finish the book
