The life of every individual seems different yet similar in some aspects. From generation to generation, a mother to a daughter, grandmother to a granddaughter - they live in a different era yet the history repeats itself and their lives translate trough time.
"One Hundred Years of Solitude" by Gabriel García Márquez paints a story of the inevitable and inescapable repetition of history through seven generations of the Buendía family. Even with the family tree clearly presented in the book, the reader is confused by several characters named Aureliano and Jose Arcadio throughout the seven generations. The genre of the novel is Magic Realism which means that the story portrays a realistic view of the modern world while adding magical elements.
Small and big events repeat themselves throughout generations without us realizing. Within our life or outside of it, the wheels turn.
