    Description

    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.

    ''This book arrived, so thus the love of my life''

    Written not with ink but love, 'Love in the time of cholera' is a story set in the epidemic of cholera and tells about the disease of love, irremediable and painful.

    Picturesque and filled with bubbles of seduction and lovemaking, 'Love in the time of cholera' beautifully explores the various lovely relationships of Mother-Son, Husband-Wife, Man-Mistress, Lover-Goddess, all together knitted with magic called love.

    This immense story is like a love song playing in the heart.

    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 describ...

    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 com...

    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 th...

    quite a disappointing text

    I ordered this book after being thoroughly impressed by Marquez's masterpiece One Hundred Years of Solitude. But what a damp squib this text was.
    Looked like it was a forced writing; like Marquez just wanted to go on and on at first and the hurriedly finish the novel. the male protagonist never finds himself guilty of any sexual misadventure that he does knowingly or unknowingly.
    What i wonder is where was love at all?
    So all those readers who think that this text will be another marvelous ...

    Love as a festival? Sounds good

    The lives of the three protagonists - Fermino Daza, Florentino Ariza, and Dr. Juvenal Urbino are the core of this book. It shows love in it's various avatars, the various shapes and kinds it can take, what happens in a fight of love between a rational person, and a so-called "Hopeless Romantic", and it's various refraction. Marquez in his book shows the various forms and states of human love and in effect educates and typifies the human mind and true love.

    Love of my life..

    Can't say much about the book as of now. Recieved the book just the day before tomorrow. AS usual, Flipkart's service was absolutely swift and user-friendly. Can say this much though, Its gonna be a tale of limitless passion and joyful love, love which is as pure as a newborn's mind. I would recommend this book to anyone. Specially to those readers who like to read literature, and relish its meaning at the same time.
