One hundred years of solitude 

"Cien anyos de soledad," by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, is considered by some to be a highlight of twentieth-century literature. (In English, the title is "One hundred years of solitude." Comic book fans may know of Marquez from his reported influence on Los Bros. Hernandez of "Love and Rockets" fame.)

I'm currently reading it in Spanish. My Spanish isn't that good, but I am really enjoying it, with a little help from my Spanish-English dictionary and helpful Internet study guides. (From which I discovered that Rebeca really is carrying the bones of her parents in a bag, and she really does eat dirt when she gets upset.)

But this movie trailer makes me wonder if I'm really getting it.
