3/7 One Hundred Years Of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez; extraordinary, magical reinvention of the Latin-American experience. @kanishktharoor      source
When I first read the book in 1986, I was mesmerized by the writing and fantastical stories. But it took working in Rwanda to understand that Garcia Marquez wrote truths, not just about Colombia but about human society. (2/6)      source

2)Marquez s “Love in the time of cholera” & “100 yrs of solitude “ are two of my top books but one still weeps reading or re- reading Tolstoy s “ War & Peace “a book bettered only by “ Anna Karenina. Not a fan of these motivational books but that “f#cked “ up book is quite funny      source
Even if you have already read One Hundred Years of Solitude, it is the rare book that offers new insights upon each rereading.      source
A good book to appreciate.      source
Remember the pleasure of recommending to someone a book that changed your life? Books are transformative but also bind people together. Share a book that changed your life. Mine is 100 Years of Solitude by Marquez which I read at age 17, 18, 30. #booksthatchangedmylife      source

If you’ve never written a book and you’re going to tell somebody you want to write a great book, read this and know what a great book is.      source
