Can unreuited love last a lifetime That s the premise of this book A 76 year old man pines for a woman all his life Now her husband has died Does he still have a chance Actually they were in love as teenagers but they mostly exchanged secret notes She was guarded by her nanny and when her father discovered the relationship he took his daughter away for three years It worked When they returned the young girl no longer loved the boy and she married a man who became a prominent and wealthy doctor The doctor s claim to fame was cleaning up the Colombian city of the open sewers that led to the disease In 1900 we re told the man is 40 so you can figure out the time frame He has an uncle who runs the local steamboat river shipping company He starts out sweeping the docks becomes a clerk and over the years eventually rises to manager As he does so he attends various cultural events in the city and occasionally sees his beloved She and her husband are the most socially prominent people in the city Sometimes he gets a smile or a nod from her sometimes not Meanwhile he visits prostitutes and has long standing affairs with several women Some aren t sexual He even has an affair with his 14 year old niece ending in tragedyThe story alternates between his story and hers The constant civil wars of Colombia are a background to the story Finally her husband dies and having not talked with her for 51 years he makes his move There is excellent writing as we would expect Some passages I liked He was still too young to know that the heart s memory eliminates the bad and magnifies the good and thanks to this artifice we manage to endure the burden of the past At one point the woman learns her husband has been unfaithful and he admits it and weeps She is disappointed because he did not do what she had hoped he would do deny everything and swear on his life it was not true and grow indignant at the false accusationeven when confronted with crushing proofs of his disloyalty She was a ghost in a strange house that overnight had become immense and solitary and through which she wandered without purpose asking herself in anguish which of them was deader the man who had died or the woman he had left behind Always remember that the most important thing in a marriage is not happiness but stability No I m not rich he said I am a poor man with money which is not the same thing An excellent book I had read this years ago and I should have re read it sooner A classic from the master of Latin American literature that I will add to my favorites Photos from top A street in Cartagena from cartagenaexplorercom Steam ships on the Magdalena river around 1873 from mediaistockphotocomillustrationsThe author from okdiariocom

read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB Î Gabriel García Márquez Gabriel García Márquez Î 3 summary review El amor en los tiempos del cólera Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB 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 he. I previously read One Hundred Years of Solitude and I liked it a lot and I was intruiged by the title Love in the Time of Cholera so I thought I d read itWithin the first few pages I had the inkling I didn t like it but sometimes it takes books a little while to get warmed up Plus I don t like starting a book and not finishing it because I know I ll never go back to a book I stopped reading because I didn t like it and if I stop reading it I ll never know if I would have liked the rest of it So I forged ahead and completed the whole bookFirst off the magical realism that made 100 yrs of Solitude so gripping was not as prevalent in Cholera I actually only saw it a few times in the entire novel unless it was so well done that it was just perfectly woven into the book and I didn t notice I doubt that thoughbut this was easy to get over I mean it s a different book so it was bound to be well different from 100Solitude But I guess my conservative religious side was riled up by the rest of the book It portrays everyone as being incredibly sex oriented Men women everyone And not morally so if you know what I mean Everyone sleeps around while married and while unmarried And the tone of the book seemed to be saying that that s expected uite frankly like the sex a person has most of the time with the people the normal and in some ways the gifted they are I m generalizing uite a bit not getting into the specifics of the story and my reactions to them howeverNow this book is on Oprah s book club list and she said it s the greatest love story she s ever heard Alrightif a good love story euals someone waiting for their true love where waiting means having sex with everything that moves And now they re making a movie The tag says Florentino rejected by the beautiful Fermina at a young age devotes much of his adult life to carnal affairs as a desperate attempt to heal his broken heart I guess I can see how you can read the book that way I guess I just don t prefer books where carnal affairs are the center And I didn t read it that way It didn t seem to me that the carnal affairs were a desperate attempt to heal his broken heart They seemed like he just wanted to have sex in the meantime SOMEWHAT SPOILER ALERT BUT NOT REALLYyou cannot declare yourself a virgin just bc you didn t love the hundreds of people you had sex with before your one true loveWhat bothered me I think was that in the end I couldn t tell if the novel was condoning a life of promiscuity as long as it leads to one true love or if it was condemning its character s behavior in some ways I tend to lean towards thinking it wasn t really condemning it though I probably missed something I m sure Because not being sure what a book was saying is not usually the book s faultIn some ways it should have been titled Sex in the Time of Cholera because the term love was used instead of sex almost constantly and obviously those are two very different things
