Fiction • 14 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1964

Narrator John Lee pulls listeners into this enchanting and mystical tale, often described as the quintessential Latin American novel. Simultaneously wretched and comic, it is the convoluted account of 100 years of the Buendia family, who live in a remote tropical village. Lee’s steady narration is helpful as the listener wades through a web of multigenerational family members who share the same few names. With story lines not always in chronological order, one might suffer from the absence of a printed family tree. Instead, listeners will enjoy Lee’s enticing images of gypsies’ flying carpets and conversational ghosts, and embrace Lee’s solemnity as he describes the soldier patriarch who lost 32 consecutive wars and the children born with pigs’ tails. Soon, one is entwined in García Márquez’s magical world. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2014]
