One Hundred Years of Solitude (International Writers)

One Hundred Years of Solitude - Gregory Rabassa, Gabriel García Márquez I found this a bit of a struggle to be honest. I was initially daunted by the perplexing family tree in the front and 400 pages of small, close-set type later I'm not much wiser. It got better towards the end but this wasn't as "magically real" as Love In The Time of Cholera or any of the other Gabriel García Márquez novels I've read.
