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 re 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 it.
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 book. First off, the magical realism that made " yrs.
I doubt that though 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 - quite frankly, like the more sex a person has, most of the time with the more people, the more normal and in some ways the more gifted they are.
I'm generalizing quite a bit, not getting into the specifics of the story and my reactions to them, however. Now this book is on Oprah's book club list and she said it's "the greatest love story" she's ever heard. 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. 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 fault.
In 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.

They exchange several love letters. However, once Fermina's father, Lorenzo Daza, finds out about the two, he forces his daughter to stop seeing Florentino immediately. When she refuses, he and his daughter move in with his deceased wife's family in another city. Regardless of the distance, Fermina and Florentino continue to communicate via telegraph.
However, upon her return, Fermina realizes that her relationship with Florentino was nothing but a dream since they are practically strangers; she breaks off her engagement to Florentino and returns all his letters.
A young and accomplished national hero, Dr. Juvenal Urbino, meets Fermina and begins to court her. Despite her initial dislike of Urbino, Fermina gives in to her father's persuasion and the security and wealth Urbino offers, and they wed. Urbino is a medical doctor devoted to science, modernity, and "order and progress".
He is committed to the eradication of cholera and to the promotion of public works. He is a rational man whose life is organized precisely and who greatly values his importance and reputation in society. He is a herald of progress and modernization. Even after Fermina's engagement and marriage, Florentino swore to stay faithful and wait for her. However, his promiscuity gets the better of him. Even with all the women he is with, he makes sure that Fermina will never find out.
Meanwhile, Fermina and Urbino grow old together, going through happy years and unhappy ones and experiencing all the reality of marriage.
At an elderly age, Urbino attempts to get his pet parrot out of his mango tree, only to fall off the ladder he was standing on and die. After the funeral, Florentino proclaims his love for Fermina once again and tells her he has stayed faithful to her all these years. Hesitant at first because of the advances he made to a newly made widow, Fermina eventually gives him a second chance.
They attempt a life together, having lived two lives separately for over five decades. Urbino's function in the novel is to contrast with Florentino Ariza and his archaic and boldly romantic love. Urbino proves in the end not to have been an entirely faithful husband, confessing one affair to Fermina many years into their marriage. Though the novel seems to suggest that Urbino's love for Fermina was never as spiritually chaste as Florentino Ariza's was, it also complicates Florentino's devotion by cataloging his many trysts as well as a few potentially genuine loves.
By the end of the book, Fermina comes to recognize Florentino's wisdom and maturity, and their love is allowed to blossom during their old age. View all 4 comments. Apr 04, Mar 21, MsAprilVincent rated it did not like it Recommends it for: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I don't like this book. I don't like the characters. This was going to be a list, but then I realized that this is the only reason I have.
Florentino Ariza is a baby. Seriously, his mom gives him whatever he wants, and she tries to make everything all right for him, and he is very, very He rationalizes his behavior in whatever way he can, so he never feels that he is doing anything wrong. Sometime during the Seduction of the , it says that Florentino Ariza thought that when a woman said no, she really meant something else that's a paraphrase. This is another thing I have no tolerance for.
So, when he persisted in his attentions to Fermina Daza, even after she'd made her own feelings quite clear TWICE , and she came around to his way of thinking, it justified his behavior.
I don't think he should be rewarded for that.
I think he should be kicked to the curb. Fermina Daza was almost likable; I was almost there with her, but then I realized that there wasn't anything really likable about her. She was efficient and organized, she was well-behaved, and she was boring.
Why did men love her? What did she have to offer? I did like Juvenal Urbino. Of course he dies in the first chapter. Even though two weeks doesn't seem like a long time, it's a long time for ME to be reading a book, particularly one that isn't a thousand pages long and written in Elizabethan English.
I didn't think this was any kind of love story. Like Wuthering Heights, it's more a love-gone-wrong story, or an obsession story; none of the characters really displayed any of the traits that I would associate with love, one which--the chief one, I would say--is selflessness. None of them were willing to put anyone else above themselves, and maybe that's why I didn't particularly care for them, or for this book.
I've written a more in-depth review here. View all 45 comments. Rawnak Totally agree! So disappointed! Apr 16, The language is beautiful but Florentino is an obsessive creepy pedophile. Nov 11, Feb 04, Riku Sayuj rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: They now have their own crowned goddess. One Hundred Years of Solitude is one of my favorite novels.
Which is why, when I started reading Love in the Time of Cholera , one of the things I noticed immediately was the lack of the subtle brand of magic that I had so enjoyed. I missed it and was on the lookout for it. I wanted it badly and went around every corner with the expectation of a cheerful reunion. But it was not to be.
As Pynchon says: Why this marginalization of the extraordinary? Why this deliberate move towards realism? Why no Magic? I kept asking myself this as I read, and beyond.
Was I to understand that it is because Love in itself is Magic? Or is it because Love in the Time of Cholera is to seen as the product of a more experienced author, who no longer needs the resources of magic realism and hyperbole to surprise the reader? One thing was sure, Love in the Time of Cholera is not only about Love, even when it pervades every page. Love in the Time of Cholera , while on a much smaller scale than One Hundred Years of Solitude , deals with the Colombian civil wars of this period and the violence left in its wake.
While One Hundred Years of Solitude disguises the political themes through the uses of myth, fantasy, hyperbole, and magic realism, Love in the Time of Cholera disguises them through its depiction of an eternal, sometimes exasperating, almost unrealistic love affair, one which flouts the conventions of every love story the reader might have come across.
Love in the Time of Cholera is often quite bleak due to this veering towards stark Realism, to this occasional historical invasion of the narrative. Much of this realism arises from Death and Decay - the central themes of the novel. In fact he is neither an Idealistic or a Realistic author - he is just a supremely eloquent voice speaking from the vantage-point of his own old age and wisdom. They are apocalyptic.
They are decadence distilled. Then why the popularity? Why do we love them? Why are we uplifted? I think it is because of the Quixotic Heroism of the people who populate these doomed worlds. It is this heroism that veils the Apocalyptic forebodings that pack so densely like storm clouds throughout the firmament his novels.
After all, Consider how during the entire time he waits to talk to Fermina again fifty-one years, nine months, and four days Florentine Ariza is dauntless and never ever gives up even the slightest sliver of hope.
Nothing could shake this man: Florentino Ariza had kept his answer ready for fifty-three years, seven months, and eleven days and nights. The Heart of Darkness: There are so many themes that could be explored. But in this review I will try to focus on the Beginning and the Ending of this intricately structured novel, and try to tease out the the thread that explains the absence of Magic.
The whole novel is too broad a canvas to be explored in a review. The Institutions of Love: Inventing Love He was aware that he did not love her. He had married her because he liked her haughtiness, her seriousness, her strength, and also because of some vanity on his part, but as she kissed him for the first time he was sure there would be no obstacle to their inventing true love.
They did not speak of it that first night, when they spoke of everything until dawn, nor would they ever speak of it. But in the long run, neither of them had made a mistake. It is quite easily the crucial conundrum the novel wants to solve - the 'other' to the novel's essence. Security, order, happiness - can these when added together in the right proportions provide an equation for Love? For the sort of Love that can stop the decay that seems to have beset the entire world? Apparently not. It is not enough.
Ultimately Love is love of Love itself, not merely the desire for its actual attainment or even the act of its fulfillment. Passion is its own object.
The ultimate goal of Love is to save the world, to create it anew. Destroying Love So why is this world so much in need of saving? The cosmic decline in Love seems to be the cause for alarm, the cause for the pervasive decay that invades the world of the novel: Everything in this novel, from the environment, to the city, to the rebels, to the civil wars, to the people, to the pets are ancient - as if they were part of this earth from the very beginning, but everybody is in the throes of love.
And everything ancient is also decaying, sliding slowly towards the final end of death - so is the sadness and the conventional love represented by Juvenal. But it is not just about the human lives. This one is also about the death of a river, of a town, of a society… or murder, rather.
The abundant nature that surrounds the town is caught in a process of irreversible decay. Alligators, manatees, monkeys, and birds disappear from the jungle; toward the end, the riverboats have difficulty finding enough wood for their boilers. While the political urgency of this topic is clear, cosmic decline in Love in the Time of Cholera has a different meaning and is linked to the theme of the interruption of love discussed before. This is the central tenet of the novel - Love in the Time of Decay.
However, there is more. The Sweet Smell of Bitter Almonds Counter to the dark theme of decay that is to be developed for most of the rest of the plot, early in the novel, an act of brave revolt against this inevitability establishes the counter-current against the steady march of decay.
This act initiates the long debate that runs throughout the novel about Love and its objective - are we to preserve Love at the expense of Life or to preserve Life through Love? By raising this question so early, by calculating his suicide long beforehand, by choosing to end the world than to let it go to rot, to see it rot, Saint-Amour stays alive through the rest of the novel, haunting it.
Being a witness to the decay of love was the most unbearable to Saint-Amour, the Saint of Love? What we see dramatized at the end of the book, however, is the possibility of genuine passion and romance in old age. Saint-Amour kills himself to preserve his body from decay, to fix its image, as it were, through death.
Love and decay, then, constitute the double focus of this novel, the former being present in countless ways throughout. Love in The Time of Cholera: The Post-Apocalyptic Paradise … his mother was terrified because his condition did not resemble the turmoil of love so much as the devastation of cholera. Every page of this novel is rammed full of love, beyond the capacity of any reader to fully comprehend.
Love is in the air like Malaria; and in the water, like Cholera - its infections are inescapable! All aspects of love are covered in exquisite detail - from teenage love to old age; from sexual to rapine to platonic; from formal courtship to marital to unconsummated; to unrequited love to the excesses of suicide and adultery; from the mundane normalcy of love to the incestuous abnormalities.
Love in the novel is not the purely romantic love -carefree, easy flowing, spontaneous, and idealized. It is Love as the Second Coming! Sailing The River of Love: This should have been the order of Life. In between lies the desert - the only time we are allowed to live - when not capable of love. It is a paradox on which the very survival of this fictional universe seems to depend on. Love and Life cannot coexist then - The solution is to give up the life they know for Love.
To take the ultimate leap of faith. Love should now destroy that earlier Life instead, just as Cholera can squeeze it out. And then be reborn, afresh. The novel ends with the central characters challenging their entire social world and the very conditions of their existence by their grand romantic gesture, by their final, and what seems like eternal, trip on the Magdalena river.
This is the necessary reaction to the decay that is fast on the route to complete extinction, to death. Love and Cholera will both go extinct otherwise, rooted out by Life.
Love is shown as the redeeming force that saves both humanity, nature, culture and history. It appears as a divine force that defies everything. As if in biblical terms, the novel seems to assert that it is not yet too late to stop the end of humanity and to reach out for grace and happiness. Most importantly, never allow the Yellow Flag to be questioned. Sustain the ardor.
The pestilence is to be maintained at all costs! Only then will the world let you sail on. Of course, the novel ends with the reader wondering if Fermina and Florentino will ever be able to come ashore and exercise their second chance. We are left to question this act for ourselves: How do we save the world? By Escape into an Unrealistic Fantasy?
Or is love more real? This final triumph is exquisitely multi-layered. Fermina and Florentino will remain isolated from the real contagion of their earlier Life by allowing their Love to be disguised as Cholera. They are not rejecting the world, they are allowing the world to reject them instead. The quarantine is really against love, the sickness that society will not, can not tolerate, the sickness that society fear as much as a deadly epidemic, the sickness that the society fears will wipe it out.
Instead it is that very sickness, which is recognized by conventional society as its biggest scourge, that saves the characters from extinction, along with the manatees, the alligators, and the monkeys. It is Love that saves all in the end - at least we are left to imagine that possibility.
Life has been reborn in the Second Coming of Love! The Will to Lyricism So, now we can come back to the question we started with - of the Absence of Magic. Unlike the death that starts off One Hundred Years of Solitude , here that death, the suicide, is ultimately sublimated into love - and decay is arrested in its unreality! In fact reality has instead been reinvented in their own terms, where previous reality was rejected outright.
The capacity for illusion is magic enough to save the world, and our souls. Only then can the Magic return. Jess Penhallow What a great review. It reads like a very well-planned literary essay.

I hate not finishing books but I cannot carry on with this any longer when I am not enjoying it and I have so many other books I could be reading instead.
The writing is tedious. Focused on a man rejected when he was young and his infatuation with this woman for years afterwards. He sleeps with numerous other women, as we are shown in detail. His first love marries another, but he still cannot move on. His obsession borders on the creepy, he never DNF at page His obsession borders on the creepy, he never really knew her that well in the beginning anyway let alone to call it true love.

Peter Am I right in assuming that this book played a central role in the film Serendipity, which starred Kate Beckinsale and I think some other people: Jul 27, Charlotte May Peter: Jan 07, Liz rated it liked it. I feel suspicious about the fact that I didn't fall for this book the way Florentino Ariza fell for Fermina Daza. I am compelled to blame my lack of appreciation on poor reader comprehension rather than GGM'S writing, because only one of us won the nobel prize and I'm pretty sure it wasn't me.
However, I'm no idiot either, so I'll at least take the liberty to explain my grievances: They look the same; I I feel suspicious about the fact that I didn't fall for this book the way Florentino Ariza fell for Fermina Daza. They look the same; I kept getting them mixed up! I think it was unecessary to pick the two most F, vowel, R, N and Z laden names ever for use in this one story.
The narrator kept making very definitive, bold claims that 3 pages later turned out to be completely untrue. For example not real quotes "This particular bed-fellow was the closest thing to love that Florentino Ariza ever experienced apart from Fermina Daza. Similar broken promises were made about various other topics. Perhaps this was done on purpose to demonstrate the fickle nature of life or love or something like that, but for me all it did was make me yell at the pages, scolding the narrator for being a big liar.
It's just not okay. She later kills herself because he ruined her life and stole her innocence, and his only reaction to it is that he has a bout of indigestion while lying in bed with the woman he left her for The whole premise of the book is the waiting FA is waiting to finally be with FD. And when the wait is over, I don't feel like there's any reward.
Nothing between them is all that magical I dunno He says he absolutely loves FD, better than the rest, into eternity The ending is the same kind of thing It's not. So why cheapen it with the gross exaggeration In summation, it wasn't a horrible book but there were a few things that made it less than perfect. The writing really redeemed it, however, and made the experience pleasurable overall. An example of this is the detail GGM throws in about Urbino drinking chamomile tea, any then rejecting it, saying that it tastes like windows.
Everyone is perplexed, thinking he must be crazy. Then they taste it themselves: View all 30 comments. One of the few writers I have read who can show sex convincingly on the page, so that it reinforces character and extends action, and doesn't become a narrative sinkhole in which entropy prevails. Depressingly great. One of those books one knows one could never write yet still one wishes -- pointlessly -- that one could do so.
Laden with vivid detail. It moves almost flawlessly, from sequence to sequence with nary a foot put wrong in terms of diction or tone. Relentless storytelling, like diamonds One of the few writers I have read who can show sex convincingly on the page, so that it reinforces character and extends action, and doesn't become a narrative sinkhole in which entropy prevails.

On the whole a shattering novel despite it conventional structure. Warmly recommended. William2 Remember who the narrator is and what his biases are. It's not Marquez himself. Now tell me, on what page did that slur occur? I'd like to read it ove Remember who the narrator is and what his biases are.
I'd like to read it over again. Great comments, Thank you This was not the book for me. I know a lot of people give it praise and it is considered a classic, but I never got into it. It rambled. I got bored. What was supposed to be a story about love seemed to be more about twisted obsession and I never found it endearing.
None of the characters were all that great and I pretty much found myself feeling sorry for everyone. I was thankful when I was done. View all 32 comments.
