One Hundred Years of Solitude

by Gabriel García Márquez

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

NC-17

Yowza! This book has some hot and steamy action practically on every page. There's prostitution, incest, pedophilia, even a little bestiality. Definitely not for the young or the prudish. But the descriptions of sex are always flowery, and the language is not graphic so much as poetic, which is why we didn't go for the XXX rating on this one. But still, don't say we didn't warn you.
