A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings

Oh Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I think I was the only one in my high school literature class who liked One Hundred Years of Solitude. Everyone else hated it, I think. What other explanation could there be for their robotic reading of it in class? I had to keep myself from yelling at them to read with more feeling, or at least to read faster. The last thing I needed was to get in trouble for my big mouth. They read every book that way though. Even No Exit, which was about people in hell! You can't read that so robotically, come on now! Then again, I was in the class because I liked reading, and because I was looking for book recommendations or at least to get to read I book I hadn't read before. I think they were just in that class to fill a space on their class schedule because the guidance counselor made them.
