One Hundred Years of Solitude vs. Tin Drum
I personally liked the Tin Drum more than One Hundred Years of Solitude. Though both were decent enough novels, I enjoyed Grass's writing style more than I enjoyed Marquez's. It was hard to decide which I liked more though because they were rather similar. Both mixed magic and reality, both showed events from history from a unique perspective. Overall, I liked the Tin Drum better, but One Hundred Years of Solitude wasn't bad either.
