Read Chronicle of a Death Foretold by Gabrel Garcia Marques and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison.  Read each novel closely, thoughtfully, and well.  I will be testing you on these two novels during the first two to three days of class.  The exams will be short answer essay and long essay format, and there may also be fill-in type tests.  
    If you really put in the effort to read and comprehend each novel, you should be well prepared for the exam.
