The brilliant, bestselling, landmark novel that tells the story of the Buendia family, and chronicles the irreconcilable conflict between the desire for solitude and the need for love—in rich, imaginative prose that has come to define an entire genre known as "magical realism."

I swear people only like this because it’s long. If reading the history of a family with shared names is interested you might like it

It as an absolutely stunning piece of literature and magical realism. It can be a grueling read due to a complicated family tree and several characters having identical names, but if you can get passed that, absolutely worth the journey into Macando.

This is one of my favorites! I’ve reread it a couple of times. The complexity of the story is what makes it magical, but ultimately, in between the craziness, it can be very relatable.
