Books

Having previously attempted to express my opinions on literature and subsequently been shouted at in one of the two comments people have left on my page, i am reluctant to try it again..
" thats rubbish he's a completely different writer to chekov or cormac, and women, although brutal in places is actually a very tender book. comparing him to chekov is like comparing the sex pistols to bach. pointless. people always diss bukowski cos he's so easy to read and you read all the books when your eighteen and somehow its not seen as proper literature. But the fact that he's so easy to read is what makes him one of the greats and being so easily accessible, and using drinking, womanising etc as the vehicle to talk about the universe is a trick few have managed with such panache. so there". I would like to know how this person is..........

I recently read " Memories of my melancholy whores" and am now reading One Hundred years of Solitude", both by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I really liked whores, its basically about a kiddy fiddler who falls in love/lust with a 14 year old girl, very well written, poignant and short. I am not so sure about 100 years of solitude as it seems a bot whimsical and at times twee (hopefully these sweeping comments will enrage someone enough to leave a comment). He seems to constantly introduce new characters half of which have the same if not very similar names ( a lot of Jose). I seem to constantly refer to the huge family tree in order to work out who is who, either that or i am not very clever.

100 years is really stretching but its really worth it. the characters have same names because thats south american tradition. just keep referring to the family tree at the front to keep you clued up. i really loved it. last page is amazing. dont skip anything...

i wanna read whores because im a bit obsessed with teenagers and youth too so to some extent i can empathise...iin a lolita sorta way...
