Macondo and the Colonel Aureliano Buendía and Amaranta Úrsula and Granmother Úrsula and the fellow followed by the butterflies. Wonderful!
BTW, García Márquez is the acknowledged father of the "magical realism".
"...because the houses sentenced to a hundred years of solitude do not have a second opportunity in this earth" or however the quote goes!
I don't know what the point is. Gabo's point usually goes very very deep (I had to made a monography on Erendira when I was at High School and had to read the story nine times before I got the point :-)). But even if you don't get it, the book is a wonderful study of Latinamerican's story.
