Living in a reality that is slipping away

Yesterday I finally finished One Hundred Years of Solitude. I am embarrassed to admit that I have been reading this book on and off for the past four years. But yesterday was a Sunday and I was determined to get through the last quarter. I don't want to say that it was worth the wait but it definitely was satisfying to linger on this last sentence:

'...everything written on them was unrepeatable since time immemorial and forever more, because races condemned to one hundred years of solitude did not have a second opportunity on earth.'
