I read this book, an excellent novella, earlier this week and I can't stop thinking about it. Did Santiago actually do it? Ambiguous endings are usually pretty lame, same with first person narratives, but you could tell from the get go you'd never get a straight answer. It was so well executed on both fronts.

I personally think he did. Seems just like every other small town where everyone is sleeping with each other surreptitiously, while they occupy a higher morality in public.

This Was my first gabo, I picked it up at a used bookstore last week. Are his longer works just as good or better? I might read it again soon because it's so short. I'll definitely be reading more of his work.

A few short stories and Cien Años de Soledad are the only things worth reading of his t b h.

>calling García Márquez "gabo"
J-just... why?

Also, if you speak spanish, 100 años de soledad, is a must read, I don't know about his other works, sorry.

I liked One Hundred Years and Memories of my Melancholy Whores a lot. Bad Marquez is better than the best from most writers so just work your way through all of his stuff.
>>
Love in the Time of Cholera is pretty good. I read it after 100YOS, which I loved

I really like the South American setting and I feel like a possible explanation for people who can't get into him is that they don't have a good basis of South American history/culture/geography.

It's easy but I wouldn't say it's short.
