I have recently finished my first Nobel Prize for Literature book and I was amazed. This is One Hundred Years of Solitude by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. This a book interwoven with a rich tapestry of outlandish colours, outstanding imagery and interesting family dynamics. It follows several generations of the same family through the apparently never-ending cycle of life and death with sex and incest as part of the story of life. However, for me personally, I got a little confused with the family dynamics as family members were named after each other and I sometimes forgot who was who but it was not enough to put me off this or other novels.
