Love in the Time of Cholera (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.220

Love in the Time of Cholera is a tale of limitless passion and strong love that’s based in the rustic setting of Columbia. The book narrates the story of three people whose lives will be bound together for fifty years. It covers the lives and times of Fermina Daza, Florentino Ariza and Dr. Juvenal Urbino, the three key characters.

Will a lack of passion in her marriage drive a woman towards her old flame?

What defines commitment in a relationship?

These are the questions that Gabriel Garcia Marquez tries to answer through his book, Love in the Time of Cholera. This is a fascinating love story that’s weaved around the lives of its three main protagonists Florentino, Fermina and Juvenal. Fermina is charmed by the romantic ways of Florentino in her youth, but their relationship is cut short by her father.

She eventually gets married, when she is 21, to Juvenal Urbino, a man who offers her love and security. Urbino is a rational man and a doctor who is devoted to eradicating cholera. Their lives are intertwined for a long period of time and Marquez slowly lets the bond between Florentino and Fermina grow from immature romance to a very mature relationship.

Does Fermina go back to Florentino?

Is Juvenal’s practical portrayal of love stained with dark shades?

Love in the Time of Cholera is a stark amalgam of the two contrasting faces of love, purity and practicality. The book was initially published in the year 1985 in Spanish, and was translated to English in 1988.

of loveless love.

the haunting sounds of the cicadas, the orange-ness of the oranges, the whiteness of the walls, the caribbean heat remains with the reader long after. ambiguity and uncertainty once attributed to the 'history of the novel' by kundera is explored through the kaleidoscope of love. such epidemics will always be welcome.

Fail to see why it is so popular!

Firstly, let me clarify that Flipkart delivery was impeccable as usual. I received the book within 3 days, in good condition.

Coming to the book itself, this one has been on my to-read list for a long time. The book is so popular, it is referenced in many movies, especially soppy romantic ones. And being a soppy romantic myself, I was really looking forward to enjoying this one. And was I disappointed! The story has no beginning, no middle, no end. It just goes on. The author goes on describing events, incidents in the lives of the 3 main characters, spanning half a century, that just drag...

The author goes on describing events, incidents in the lives of the 3 main characters, spanning half a century, that just drag on. The ending was so insipid, it is like the author just got bored of writing, gave up and sent the book for publishing.

I read a lot of classics and have enjoyed most of them, but this one has left me disappointed.

BAD PRINTING QUALITY!!!!!!!!

This book has made up to the top of my favorites and i would recommend this to everyone..........very meaningful and sweet......the best part is that the author has not taken help of the sexual side of love (like sideny sheldon etc.) but has shown how love can have so many forms even without any physical relations..but as far as the printing is concerned its lacks quality.....there are many grammatical mistakes and at many places you have to use your instincts to read out words....so read this BUT BUY A DIFFERENT EDITION

wonderful read

If one wishes to understand how beautiful language can get, one needs to read this book. The story revolves around the lives of three persons - Fermina, Florentino and Dr.Urbino. Without serving spoilers, I will say that the story is about the various ways in which relationships can happen. The beauty of sentence construction is what blew me away. As I was reading the book, I could not help but keep appreciating the writer's skill of describing everyday events and people. The scenery just comes to life as you read and you find yourself among the characters. Great read that makes me go for s... ()
