Fantastic! Dec 1, 2007
Only an author as talented as Gabriel Garcia Marques is able to write a novel which its name tells you the end and you still can't stop reading it. Fantastic!
Non Traditional Novel, MASTERPIECE Sep 18, 2005
First things first. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a NOBEL price winner. He is a highly recognized writer. Honestly, I might not be qualified to critique his caliber.
Some of his writings are not easy to read. This one is short, but an atypical masterpiece. It is used in College as an example of a novel that does not follows the traditional introduction - climax - resolution path. Instead the writer returns back in time in every chapter and "retell" the story from a different character point of view. The main character is killed in every one of the chapters! And the poor soul was not guilty!
By the way, do give you a little extra time to figure out what is going on. This piece is not hard to read, the Spanish used is more contemporary and concised. But if you feel a little lost at the begining, it is OK. You are not really at the beginning of the story. You are at one of its many climax-ending points.
YOU WILL LIKE IT. YOU WILL NOT FORGET IT.
Muy Bueno! Aug 13, 2005
I have been learning Spanish for 4 years now, and I have had my share at reading very boring and not very well written books in Spanish, and fortunately, some but very few good ones. One is Lazarillo de Tormes, and another is Cronica de Una Muerte Anunciada de Garcia Marquez. I have to say that even if i didn't know that Garcia Marquez was the man that made the literature of Columbia more noticed all over the world, and won the Nobel Prize for this work, and was most well known and famous for One Hundred Years of Solitude (which i hope to read in Spanish as well), i would have still been enamored into his style and what he represents in his works. Obviously, he's speaking for the culture and heritage of the people, and does it very well that from this book alone we learn a lot about it. At times i wish that in Spanish classes we could read books such as these that represent people in Spanish speaking countries in a better light. In other words, i wish we could read Spanish literature like this. I was surprised in how easily i followed this book without constantly relying on my Spanish dictionary. I highly recommend this book.
Binding is Terrible for this version Apr 27, 2005
Don't be fooled by a cute cover and cheap price. The binding for this edition of the book is terrible. I have gone through three books (and I take good care) because all the pages have fallen out just from bending the book back and forth.
I love Garcia Marquez and he is somebody you will want to read again. But this paperback edition won't allow it - the book will break first!!!
En otras palabras, este edicion del libro es de calidad terrible. Ya han roto tres copias del mismo libro en un mes de estudiarlo, que mucho que trato no romperlo.
Escoga otra edicion si quiere comprar este novela fantastica.
INCREIBLE Jun 17, 2004
Es increible conocer el final de un libro y aun así estar tan intrigado por como sucede o como se llega al final del libro. García Marquez titula claramente su obra Crónica de una Muerte Anunciada porque desde el primer par de hojas ya sabemos que Santiago Nassar va a ser asesinado. Increiblemente las dudas de como? porque? donde? y quien? empiezan a resolverse a lo largo de las páginas. Al final, armamos el rompecabezas, y todo parece caer en su lugar. Definitivamente es una de las mejores obras descriptivas de lengua española, y definitivamente una historia que se debe leer y que se va a recordar.
