Love in the time of choleraGabriel Garcia Marquez
García Márquez traces the history of a love that has not been reciprocated for half a century. Love flows through the novel in a thousand ways: happy, melancholic, enriching, always surprising… It is the one between Fermina Daza and Florentino Ariza, who appears on the stage of a small Caribbean port town. It might seem like a melodrama about disgruntled lovers, but it is a tropical mixture of plants and clay with which the author fantasizes at his own pleasure to, in the end, end up in the territories of myth and legend. The juices, smells and flavors of the tropics feed a hallucinatory prose that, on this occasion, reaches the oscillating port of the happy ending.
