Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

love_in_the_time_of_cholera

Outstanding novel this. Slow paced, melancholy, lyrical and measured it covers half a century of largely unrequited love as Florentino Ariza waits for most of his life to be with his first love, Fermina, after her husband dies. Brilliantly written and just wonderful to read. Wish I hadn’t waited so long to get round to it.
