Crónica de una Muerte Anunciada by Gabriel García Márquez - Spanish Edition Our narrator tells the results of the research he did of the facts leading to the death of Santiago Nasar a wealthy merchant/landowner in a small river town in Colombia sometime after WWII. The tale occurs 27 years after the fact. Bayardo San Román, a very wealthy nobleman comes into town and wins the Angela Vicario's hand in marriage even though Angela does not love his future husband. There is a huge wedding and on the day after the wedding, the bride is returned to her father for not being a virgin. Her twin brothers, Pedro and Pablo Vicario must avenge the debt of honor and must kill the person who caused this stain to the family name. Angela accuses Santiago Naser, so the brothers start telling everyone who will listen that they will be killing Santiago. For some strange reason, no one believes them and the day following the wedding - the day the bishop comes to town - they do kill him. Narrated from the first person point of view this is another wonderful little tale from the Nobel laureate who brought us One Hundred Years of Solitude. The best part is the inevitability of the facts, at the same time that the narrator makes sure we never know the truth - who actually "damaged" Angela. It's a very pleasant and quick read.

The novel was confusing at the start but it was worth reading. It's a re-telling of a murder of a man which occured many years before. Everyone knew about the murder and didn't do anything to stop it. It's a novel about family, honour and reputation.

En esta corta obra Garcia Marquez mantiene al lector desesperado. Como el mismo titulo lo emplea, Cronica de Una Muerte Anunciada es sobre la muerte de Santiago Nasar en la cual en nunca tiene el conocimiento de que va a ocurrir. Con la bella tinta que Garcia Marquez escribe, se devora linea tras linea.
