Our take

This wonderful classic from one of the best-known Latin American writers is an ode to sensuality and romantic love. Following the lives of three protagonists entrapped in a love triangle, it will carry you to a remote, elusive, dreamy Caribbean coastal town. The novel advances slowly, its narrative dream-like and sumptuous. At times you may feel as if you are moving in slow motion through air heavy with humidity and the smell of camellias. This is a perfect novel for slow and thoughtful reading that will have you marvel at García Márquez’s descriptions of lush exotic nature and the protagonists’ love pangs.

Publisher's description

A poignant meditation on the nature of desire, and the enduring power of love, Gabriel García Márquez's Love in the Time of Cholera is translated from the Spanish by Edith Grossman in Penguin Modern Classics.

Florentino Ariza is a hopeless romantic who falls passionately for the beautiful Fermina Daza, but finds his love tragically rejected. Instead Fermina marriesdistinguished doctor Juvenal Urbino, while Florentino can only wait silently for her. He can never forget his first and only true love. Then, fifty-one years, nine months and four days later, Fermina's husband dies unexpectedly. At last Florentino has another chance to declare his feelings and discover if a passion that has endured for half a century will remain unrequited, in a rich, fantastical and humane celebration of love in all its many forms.
