Genre = Novel
Told in a reminiscent manner, in the solitude of remembrance, sprinkled with magical realism. A fictional reflection on historical events. Portrays the cycles of war and love and the different ways and reasons that each person contributes to those events. The different ways people react to technology and other aspects of life. The way the community reacts to various situations. Set primarily in a small town of Macondo which was very difficult to find until a government official placed in on a map. Follows a family through the generations to see how each contributes to their society. Change is risky as sometimes it can help, sometimes it can hurt. Each handles change differently.
The book is sometimes really eloquent and other times a bit difficult to decipher. Hard to follow the flow of events and too many characters going across various times prevents appropriate transitions. Each era is a reflection of its own. The diversity of responses highlights differences, but the way it is written, prevents an immersive experience.
