by Topbookreviews@aol.com on 10/17/2007

It spans two entire lifetimes. It takes place between the end of the 19th Century and ends in the beginning of the 20th Century. Like all Marquez novels, this one is well written and a joy to read. Marquez's use of fantasy realism is legendary and keeps the somewhat morose plot fun and moving. The main character stalks his lover in parks pretending to read on a bench as she passes by. His love becomes an obsession. Marquez shows that love and the sadness it can bring is not for youth alone. It celebrates the powerful hold that true love can have on a man his entire life. This is a book that a man would enjoy as much as a woman. Also, if you missed reading Tino Georgiou's masterpiece--The Fates, go and read it. While I'm near the end, I'm reading it at a rapid pace because it's so addictive. There is something about his books that bring you in and get you hooked. and I'm loving this one. Read More

Product Overview

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermino Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

Praise
"...Oh boy--does he write well. [This] is a faithful and beautiful piece of work."
"This is one of my favorite novels. It's so dense that no matter how many times I dip into it, I manage to find something startling that I have totally forgotten."
From the Publisher
Annotation Gabriel Garcia Marquez's fanciful and lush novel is a romantic epic about love in its many guises, the clash of romanticism and rationalism, and the terrible agony of love sickness. At the apex of the novel's love triangle is Fermina Daza, who rejects her young lover Florentino Ariza, and marries the practical doctor Juvenal Urbino. While she lives a respectable and moral married life, Arize's passion for her is undiminished--despite his conquest of 622 other women. After 53 years, Urbino dies, and their love and life together begins again. The novel was adapted into a film in 2007 starring Javier Bardem as the love-smitten Ariza.
