One Hundred Years of Solitude

Gabriel García Márquez, Gregory Rabassa

A long and winding work covering several generations of an egotistically-founded, isolationist town.

I understand the book is canonical to a subgenre of magical realist literature in Spanish, with massive political connotations that would be hard otherwise to miss, but I was unaware of the specifics at the time of my reading.

For my summary, it had a great start, better early half, lulls in the middle, somewhat meandering towards the finish, but wrapped up very well in the last moments.
