I must confess that I have really bad reading habits. if a book doesn't grab my interest in the first few pages, it gets relegated to the "finish later" list unless I have read at least one good in my opinion book, by the same author. This is why whenever I lend or recommend books by an author who has written more than one, I select one of the better ones.
I usually leave stop reading & try to re-read when I am bored.
Started this a few years ... got very confusing ... book mark is @pages 242/243.
My friend who read it in Spanish told me I should start reading back from the beginning.
It is a great book, part of the genre called magical realism we see from post colonial writers like Rushdie, Toni Morrison, Arundhati Roy, and Kafka. They are meant to be confusing because they are actually cues for self analysis and questioning of reality, common beliefs and in short every experience.
Thanks D2. I have few more books to read, before I go back "one hundred years of solitude."
