Publisher's Summary

One of Gabriel García Márquez’s most intricate and ambitious works, The Autumn of the Patriarch is a brilliant tale of a Caribbean tyrant and the corruption of power.

From charity to deceit, benevolence to violence, fear of God to extreme cruelty, the dictator of The Autumn of the Patriarch embodies the best and the worst of human nature. Gabriel García Márquez, the renowned master of magical realism, vividly portrays the dying tyrant caught in the prison of his own dictatorship. Employing an innovative, dreamlike style, and overflowing with symbolic descriptions, the novel transports the listener to a world that is at once fanciful and real.

The greatest work of the 20th century

Unfortunately, this is not among the popular novels or most widely read. Although it is without a doubt the greatest literary work of the 20th century. Even Marquez himself thought it to be his greatest work. I read it 3 times, and now with the audiobook, I still experience the novel/epic like it was the very first time.
Finally, the narration was excellent! Indeed such a great book deserves such a great narration, one that truly captures the spirit of the book.
