100 Years Of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
I'm normally too lazy or have little patience for complicated stories with too many characters, but I read it when I was a teen, and I remember being
completely absorbed by it.
The 'epic' tale of 6 generations of the Buendia Family, in the imaginary village of Macondo.
He manages to add in a little bit of 'magic' here and there in the story, (although it's not really a fantasy novel) along with a little social
commentary on the late19th / early 20th century.
Never have I felt so much for a literary fictional family, with all their adventures, funny moments and misfortunes. Love, betrayal, births, deaths,
etc... I can't describe it and do it justice really, it's so much more than that!
It's also the book that helped Marquez win the Nobel prize of literature, in 82.
I just feel like buying it and reading it again!
