One Hundred Years of Solitude

Well I have not posted in a long time.

One Hundred Years of Solitude
Gabriel Garcia Marquez

I always meant to read this earlier.  My mother was ill and I realized that I would be spending alot of time in the hospital with mom.  So I thought it would be a good time to catch up on some reading.  Besides my SO's father fitted me with some great reading glasses.  So I packed some books.  I finished the  Tribe of the Tiger quickly.  Good read.  And then I settled down on the long nights on One Hundred Years of Solitude.  Now  from my experience and hindsight being perfect I will  NEVER suggest reading  this book in a time of stress and sleep deprivation.  Sometime in the wee hours of July 11 I put the book down with one chapter to go.  About 7:00 am the nurse came to check my mom's vitals, woke me,  and every thing came crashing down.

Now the question.  Do I finish One Hundred Years of Solitude or start over?  Maybe I should learn Spanish and read it as it written?  Mariser thinks I should start over.  What's everybody's opinion?

    I think if you got a good sense of the rest of the book and remember the characters, etc., I would say, just flip back a little, and then just finish it. But, if you were reading it in fits and starts and feel like you missed out, what with sleep deprivation and everything else going on, then start over. I should have done that with Borderliners, I read too little of it at a time and I don't think I absorbed enough of it.
    This is one that I think everyone has read but me (I?). I read Love In The Time of Cholera. That was a good one, but OHYOS is supposed to be his best, isn't it?
