S y el establecimiento del pueblo de Macondo desde el capítulo hasta el se trata el desarrollo económico político y social del pueblo y los últimos cuatro capítulos narran su decadencia i remember the day i stopped watching cartoons an episode of thundercats in which a few of the cats were trapped in some kind of superbubble thing and it hit me that being cartoons the characters could just be erased and re drawn outside the bubble or could just fly away or tunnel their way out or teleport or do whatever really they wanted afterall they were line and color in a world of line and color now this applies to any work of fiction i mean Cervantes could ve just written Don uixote out of any perilous situation but it just felt different with a lowest common denominator cartoon it felt that adherence to reality reality as defined within the world of the cartoon wasn t a top priority this ended my cartoon watching days and i ve pored over it in the years that followed was it a severe lack or an overabundence of imagination that made it so that while all my friends were digging saturday morning cartoons i alternated between tormenting my parents and attempting to use logic to disprove the fact that everyone i knew and everyone i ever would know was gonna diei had a similar experience with One Hundred Years of Solitude the first chapter is just brilliant gypsies bring items to Macondo a village hidden away from mass civilization by miles of swamp and mountains these everyday items magnets ice etc are interpreted as magic by people who have never seen them and it forces the reader to reconfigure hisher perception of much of what she formerly found ordinary amazing and then the gypsies bring a magic carpet a real one one that works and there is no distinction bt magnets and the magic carpet this i guess is magical realism and i had a Thundercats moment lemme explainthe magic carpet immediately renders all that preceded it as irrelevant are ice and magnets the same as magic carpets what is the relation between magic and science how can i trust and believe in a character who takes such pains to understand ice and magnets and who using the most primitive scientific means works day and night to discover that the earth is round but then will just accept that carpets can fly or that people can instantaneously increase their body weight sevenfold by pure will or that human blood can twist and turn through streets to find a specific person fuck the characters how can i trust the writer if the world is totally undefined if people can refuse to die and it s not explained who or how or why where are the stakes if someone can make themselves weigh 1000 pounds what can t they do how can i care about any situation if Garcia Maruez can simply make the persons involved sprout wings and fly away should the book be read as fairy tale as myth as allegory no i don t think it s meant to be read solely as any of those and i d label anyone a fraud who tried to explain away a 500 page book as mere allegory over i don t believe Garcia Maruez has as fertile an imagination as Borges or Cervantes or Mutis three chaps who perhaps could pull something like this off on storytelling power alone but three chaps who though they may dabble in this stuff clearly define the world their characters inhabit so i m at page 200 and i m gonna try and push on but it s tough do i care when someone dies when death isn t permanent and do i care about characters who have seen death reversed but don t freak the fuck out which is inconsistent with what does make them freak the fuck out and who also continue to cry when someone dies yes there are some gems along the way but i think had Solitude been structured as a large collection of interconnected short stories kinda like a magical realism Winesberg Ohio it would ve worked much better this is one of the most beloved books of all time and i m not so arrogant damn close to discount the word of all these people although I do have gothboy DFJ and Borges on my side a strong argument for or against anything and not so blind to see the joy this brings to so many people i fully understand it s a powerful piece of work but i really don t get it and i aggressively recommend The Adventures and Misadventures of Maroll to any and all who find Solitude to be the end all and be all

    One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Maruez is a tremendous piece of literature It's not an easy read You're not going to turn its pages like you would the latest John Grisham novel or The DaVinci Code You have to read each page soaking up every word immersing yourself in the imagery Mr Maruez says that he tells the story as his grandmother used to tell stories to him with a brick face That's useful to remembe
