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.

I loved this book!

Though it took sometime to read, I loved the ending of this book. Marquez’s writing is so descriptive I was transported to Columbia with the oppressive heat, humidity and animals. It is a book to savor not gulp. (as if one could). In the time of our pandemic, there are so many parallels.

Boring

This is the most boring book I’ve ever read. Little dialogue, all about an obsession, and a creepy one at that. The whole book is just boring and lengthy description.
