The book in its entirety is a brilliant piece of work. I finally started understanding why the characters had the same names, why the book was written the way it was written. I kept reading it because of the way it made me feel. Bcuz I understood what it was like to stay in Macondo and to be one of the Buendias.

The author’s love for comic books gripped me even more tightly as I could relate to his fascination with heroes saving the world. But what made me read with awe is his tiny 12-year-old head calculating business plans. His passion was evident and had started to drive him right from a very young age.
