It s difficult for me to collect the reasons why I felt so underwhelmed and disappointed by this story If Marquez handed me this story to critique, I d say something like, Great outline I m excited to see what you do with this and that Similarly, if someone else would ve handed me this story asking for a critique, I d say, Don t be unfair There s no way I d critique an incomplete story However, neither of those are the case A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings is all tight, telling exposition a lot of this happened, the Gabriel Garcia Marquez s A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings takes by in an unknown town by the sea During a gloomy day, Pelayo comes across a weak old man who could hardly walk because of his wings The wings brought curiosity to Pelayo and his wife, Elisenda After bringing a women who knew everything, they found out that had come to take their ill son Upon hearing the news, they began to be careful with the angel This was until their son was better and fame had come to them People around the village filled their house as they heard of the mysterious old man with wings They no longer cared if he had come for their son or that he had brought fortune upon them, he had become a burden for them Once they had money to spare and the attention the angel once brought was gone, they did not really care what happened to the angel As he disappea He had to go very close to see that it was an old man, a very old man, lying face down in the mud, who, in spite of his tremendous efforts, couldn t get up, impeded by his enormous wings A interesting and subtle book about a family who finds an old man with very large wings, and how the adventures of the old man follows out in the story There isn t a detailed review I could write for this, so keeping it simple I would say, a calm and gentle scenario with a steady pace for storytelling, and I really enjoyed this one even though its shortness, I recommend it for everyone who would enjoy a book by the salty seashore Three stars for the old, old man The world had been sad since Tuesday Sea and sky were a single ash gray thing and the sands of the beach, which on March nights glimmered like powdered light, had become a stew of mud and rotten shellfish.
WOW, this very short story is about an unfortunate couple whos first born baby is extremely sick Down on there luck, they can t tell how it might get any worst until their cries are called in a way A supposed angel falls from the sky and lands in a chicken hen This isn t any normal angel though becuase he s old and all ugly looking Any how, these couples take advantage of this angel and treats it like crap This makes you question the couples faith because they re suppose to be religious and an angel is something to be crapping your pants about Any way, the couple decides to make a profit off the angel and charges people to see it With all this, they eventually make a mansion and their child eventually gets better with time In the end, the angel flys away though and the baby gets better.
