    Modern literature at its best!

    Magic realism is Marquez's is his personal domain. His experience as a journalist is manifested in this particular novella of his. The term 'Magic realism' is coined by Westerners, but for him its just retelling of a reality. Its based on a real murder transpired in Columbia in 1950s.Can also be looked at as a parody of detective novels. Read it and get amazed by the sheer brilliance of story telling!

    Those of you who like a linear narration, predictable story line please get a best seller, ...

    A Chronicles to Life.

    The novel starts with the line, "On the day they were going to kill Santiago Nasar..." and it instantly catches our attention. Based on a true story, this novel is captivating and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It uses Magical Realism and has several violent imagery. A very gripping tale and should be read at least once..

    A big let down

    This was my first Marquez read. After coming across his literature for years, finally picked this one. I was highly disappointed. When so much is being talked about this author, you come to expect a lot.
    Brilliant idea of highlighting different facets of one murder. If critics are to be believed then this is supposed to be Marquez's master piece. At the end of the read was left with a gnawing feeling that perhaps it is a very poor translation and did no justice to Gabo's original Spanish pie...

    Does the job

    I loved the stepping back narration technique but the story is bit disappointing, I don't know what's the message the whole novella carries than the worst side of people ignorance and lies. I wanted to with whom Angela Vicario had the actual affair and how living in such narrow minded society.
