One of the stated aims of Mrquez as he said it was to tell a story just like my grandmother would have done it With the result in hand the conclusion must be that he has done it quite well Mrquez has managed to capture the vivid language of story telling as well as having the story moving both forward and sideways Togheter with the extensive use of magic realism and the life of mankind portrayed in the village Im quite sure that it will take me many years before I even start forgetting the book In the beginning of the book the reader is directly thrown into action with Colonel Aureliano facing the firing squad With his thoughts we are taken several years back in time when Macao was a village of twenty adobe houses This the beginning of the town could in a different light be seen as representing the begining of mankind clear water that ran along a bed of polished stones which were white and enormous like prehistoric eggs As the story goes on the town moves from utter igorance the world was so recent that many things lacked names and developes until we are in the modern time with the banana company telephones and the union until it towards the end of the book due to heavy rainfall turns into an uncivilized town again before its destroyed in a heavy storm The cycle of the town starts and ends on the same point just as the development of the family and all actions they all turn in cycles just as rsula thanks to her old age found out The way in which the story is written with magic realism and the story evolving both forwards and sideways is one of the more unusual characteristics when as a european reading the book The story gives the impression of moving sideways as the same incidents are retold from the view
