chronicle of a death foretold - gabriel garcia marquezSay his name and we tend to think One Hundred Years of Solitude. Why not? It is INCREDIBLE. Chronicle of a Death Foretold (English title), published nearly two decades after that 1962 masterpiece may be lesser in notoriety and in length but it is definitely not lacking in intrigue. The opening line drags you into a labyrinthine murder investigation. It goes without saying…but I will anyway…If you’re looking for a challenge, pick up a Márquez original – I often wonder how he keeps track of his own writing from one chapter to the next!

Set in Colombia.
