A few days ago, I decided I’d start reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, mostly to know what the fuss was about (I mean, it was selected for Oprah’s book club!), but also because I thought it’d help me with my Spanish. I didn’t have an extensive background in Spanish, so I was worried that it would be challenging.
Today, after finally receiving the book via Amazon Tote, I just started reading the book, and to my amazement, I’m able to understand all of it! I mean, maybe not the greater meaning of it all (if there is one, lol), but I at least understand what all of the words mean. In fact, I feel as though I’m reading it as well as a 25 year old native speaker of Spanish, and because of that, I’ve decided to write this entire post in Spanish. Amazing, right? Unfortunately, for those of you who do not understand Spanish (or may have trouble with the dialect that I’ve picked up), this post may just look like gibberish to you (you know, all of the goofy accents, lol), so I’ll write this last part in English:
YO THIS BOOK IS PRETTY GOOD IMO.
