This meme (hehehe, Meme...) pretty much sums up 100 Years to me. Personally, Marquez is probably the book that we've read so far this year that I wanted to hate the most but ended up absolutely loving in the end. Regarding things we've read in Humanities this year, what was 1) your favorite, 2) the biggest surprise (i.e. thought you'd hate it, ended up liking it), and 3) what made you think the most?
For me, it goes as follows:
1) Hamlet, because it's Shakespeare and Hamlet's level of snark reminds me of my own inner monologue
2) As I stated before, 100 Years of Solitude because, after discussing it in class, I came to see that nothing Marquez included was arbitrary but instead actually served to make the book an intricate web of symbols, themes, and history
3) Candide, because, as ridiculous as it is, it made me think about action v. thought and how to put philosophy into action
