Would recommend: no
I read it only for the sake of practicing my Spanish - I chose it because it's written by a Mexican writer, it's rather short and is available in my public library.
I found it very silly and not in my taste at all. What I hated in particular is just how quickly major events (like deaths of major characters) are described, compared to the emotions and thoughts, etc. The whole magical realism is not for me, either.
