The International Bestseller and modern literary classic by Nobel Prize-winning author Gabriel Garcia Marquez

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

yeah; ,

Gabriel Marquez demonstrates his genius once more

This novel not only tells a compelling narrative chalked full of historical references and political undertones but it explores the nature of love. Western culture is polluted by superficial, half hearted narratives about love, it is refreshing to read about love with the lucidity or Marquez's writing.

Haautsauce ,
