Living to Tell the Tale Free Audiobook Download by Gabriel García Márquez

Gabriel García Márquez wrote the book in 1967, shortly before he died and on the verge of his Nobel Prize. He wrote it in 1976 as a love letter to the Colombian people and as a hope for peace. Living to Tell the Tale chronicles the story of Florentino Ariza, a man born into poverty but who later manages to become one of Colombia's most prosperous businessmen. The story is told by Ariza himself as if he is living through it all again.

The author of the book, Gabriel García Márquez, was an avid reader. He used to read at least a hundred books a year in Spanish. When he became ill with throat cancer, he did not want to miss any books that could be lost due to his illness. This led him to create an audiobook of all his favorite books to listen to while he was bedridden and incapacitated by the disease. As a result, the world has been able to hear about the author's life through his own voice for many years now.

[Christopher Salazar] narrates Living to Tell the Tale. He uses a soft and steady voice that flows well and takes you into the story. Christopher's narration of Living to Tell the Tale is awesome because he makes it easy for you to follow along with the story.

The novel is a surreal but powerful journey through the darkest corners of human consciousness. It tells the story of a man who falls into madness and transforms into another person, a monstrous creature capable of wreaking havoc with his mind. The narrator is a journalist-turned-novelist who travels to Paris in search of his missing brother. After finding him he starts to lose grip on reality, living both in and out of bodies.
