I'm sure we're not the only ones to have this lingering unread on our shelves. Feel free to join in!
Not crazy about Marquez style, though. It's been many years since I read him, and now it feels just a little ornate and flowery for my taste. Sooo, enjoying it well enough, but not really drawn in yet.
Is anyone else reading?
No regrets on reading it - the writing and the descriptions of South America of the time period were worth the read - but it is not something that I will be retaining in my personal library for a re-read down the road.
We could check it out by researching the use of telegrams and telephones in Columbia.
