Hello. I read the book about two years back but I still have it floating in the back of my mind. I'm Colombian and I would like to explore how the book relates to Colombian culture. Essentially, after reading this book, which is part of the magical realism genre, I felt like I understood so many aspects of my culture better than ever. I would like to know the reactions of fellow Colombians and non-Colombians alike when it comes to culture and spirituality as well.

I've read it and thought its magical realism style was pretty amazing, but I don't know enough about its relationship to actual Columbian history (seeing as I'm born/raised/live in Canada). I expect there's something in the feelings it generates that made it speak to Columbians like yourself in a way the rest of us probably miss when we read it.
