Love in the Time of Cholera
Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholerais a brilliantly crafted, beautifully written story of love and the love-sick. Spurned as a young man, Florentino Ariza has a half century of waiting to fill before a chance to redeclare his love for Fermina Daze comes, when her husband is killed retrieving a parrot from a mango tree. Funny, poignant and heartfelt - enduring and unrequited love have rarely been more movingly expressed.

3.5 A solid story throughout. I ended up enjoying the first third more than the rest of the book but near the ending the story took hold and brought me to a notable conclusion. Read full review
