The audio is clear but the narration moves a bit fast, although not too bad. Otherwise, this is a very good introduction to Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
I have never been able to read Marquez's 100 Years of Solitude and this is a short biography of the writer that quotes passages from the famous book. It gives you both a lot of information about him and about 100 Years od Solitude. I don't feel that I need to read the book anymore and I have a good impression of it. This provides just enough of a picture to grasp both the content and the style of Garcia Marquez's work.
