This was my first Gabriel Garcia Marquez book and it didn't take me long to see why he's a Nobel winner. I can see why readers fall in love with his books. He instantly grabs your attention. The first sentence is "I've seen a corpse for the first time." Who wouldn't want to read more after reading that awesome opening line? I'm looking forward to reading more of his work, especially One Hundred Years of Solitude and Love in the Time of Cholera.
