  • Yea I saw your name on all the packets. And Sarahngelo was nagging on me for knowing you and Phil from the internet.

    Well, I'm certainly trying. I feel like going in and trying to read Cien años de soledad is rather like learning to swim by jumping into the deep end of the pool. I have a hard time picking up on the nuances of the text sometimes, but I think that has more to do with Márquez cramming as much content as he possibly could in every one of his sentences. I am getting it, it's just a very very slow process for me. :)

    From what very little I do know, Fields does mostly Osprey books. Doesn't necessarily mean anything bad, because Osprey books are written by Real Published Academic Historians, Good Historians with Doctorates who Need Work, and Popular Historians who Might or Might Not Have a Degree in History. Never read any of his stuff myself. It's probably worth a shot. See if you can locate Goldsworthy's biography of Caesar, though, that's pretty good re: Caesar vs. Pompey.
