One Hundred Years of Solitude, by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
"One Hundred Years of Solitude tells the story of the rise and fall, birth and death of the mythical town of Macondo through the history of the Buendía family. Inventive, amusing, magnetic, sad, and alive with unforgettable men and women -- brimming with truth, compassion, and a lyrical magic that strikes the soul -- this novel is a masterpiece in the art of fiction."
Beautifully written, but at the same time a difficult read. Every line is so jam packed with description that it's easy to go into overload.
