This book is a long read, and I haven't finished it yet, but I pick it up every morning and have a hard time putting in down again when it's time to do something else.

As always GGM's writing style is extremely engrossing and adicting. I would rank this book right up there with his best novels. Others have discussed the content, so I won't repeat what others have written. I will only say that GGM had a very interesting life, and he relates it in his incomparable literary style.

Un placer leerlo e identificar nombres y caracteres de sus novelas y sus cuentos. Es cierto que tiene pasajes bastante amenos e interesantes, donde el autor nos deleita con su prosa, pero por momentos se pierde el hilo de la lectura, en un sin fin de recuerdos de parientes, amigos, y conocidos del escritor que la hacen algo densa y repetitiva la historia. De todos modos es una lectura recomendable, no es lo mejor de Garcia Marquez pero vale la pena leerlo. Es un libro muy revelador, es conocer al hombre y al escritor.

I have not finished reading this book but as always I love his work. It is nice to get a glimpse on his life as a young man in Colombia and his early dreams and aspirations and seeing how it all began for him as a writer. Such funny anecdotes such as his conversation with his mother about his career choice and how she is supposed to explainte this to his father while on a boat trip to sell an old house. I really like it.

You are taken to another time and other place and definetly see the life of the great Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Go to Amazon. Back to top. Get to Know Us. Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. DPReview Digital Photography.


Vivir para contarla

Can one of the greatest storytellers of the 20th century, winner of the Nobel for literature, write about his life without confusing reality and fictional adventures? Well, yes and no. Yet as he explains in the epigraph, "Life isn't what one lived, but what one remembers and how one remembers it to tell it. The narrative becomes a journey through Colombian history, starting with the writer's childhood in Aracataca and ending in at age 29, when he traveled abroad for the first time. Snapshot passages about his life as a student and a traveler on Colombia's most important river, the Magdalena, as well as the beginnings of his journalism career, are vividly narrated.
