Love in the Time of Cholera


“He allowed himself to be swayed by his conviction that human beings are not born once and for all on the day their mothers give birth to them, but that life obliges them over and over again to give birth to themselves.” — Gabriel García Márquez, Love in the Time of Cholera

  1. If one wishes to understand how beautiful language can get, one needs to read this book. The story revolves around the lives of three persons – Fermina, Florentino and Dr.Urbino. Without serving spoilers, I will say that the story is about the various ways in which relationships can happen. The beauty of sentence construction is what blew me away. As I was reading the book, I could not help but keep appreciating the writer’s skill of describing everyday events and people. The scenery just comes to life as you read and you find yourself among the characters. Great read that makes me go for some other masterworks of the same author.

  2. I couldn’t agree more. Gabriel García Márquez is a master of his craft and one of my favorite authors ~ and what you wrote is beautiful – thank you. Love in the Time of Cholera is an enchanting, powerful read, but One Hundred Years of Solitude will always be my favorite book of all time! Thank you for your comment!
