Of Love and Other Demons
Of Love and Other Demons is set in a South American seaport in the colonial era, a time of viceroys and bishops, enlightened men and Inquisitors, saints and lepers and pirates. Sierva Maria, only child of a decaying noble family, has been raised in the slaves' courtyard of her father's cobwebbed mansion while her mother succumbs to fermented honey and cacao on a faraway plantation. On her twelfth birthday the girl is bitten by a rabid dog, and even as the wound is healing she is made to endure therapies indistinguishable from tortures. Believed, finally, to be possessed, she is brought to a convent for observation. And into her cell stumbles Father Cayetano Delaura, the Bishop's protege, who has already dreamed about a girl with hair trailing after her like a bridal train; who is already moved by this kicking, spitting, emaciated creature strapped to a stone bed.

This book was too scatter-brained and often is difficult to follow. Though Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a talented writer, I feel this is his weakest book. The characters are never described enough or allowed to develop enough for the reader to establish any type of connection or favoritism. There is also a lack of environmental explanation that diminishes a reader's ability to comprehend the circumstances, unless one has had recent and extensive background of the period after the Bourbons come to the Spanish monarchy and the long-relationship between the Catholic Church and the Spanish state. Such research that is required for this book's full comprehension is far too extensive for such a short book. I did not like this book in the very least.
