This is the first work I have read by Marquez, but it will not be the last. A wonderful read in a beautiful landscape with excellent character development. It's a convoluted Carribean love story that does not get caught up in romanticism, but rather explores a romantic's struggle with a fifty year obsession and a life enveloped in poetry and flowery prose. A must read that will take the reader into the humid setting and the inner workings of several fascinating characters.

Product details 368 pages Vintage Books USA - English 9781400034680 Reviews:
"Review" by , "The greatest luxury, as in all of Garcia Marquez's books, is the eerie, entirely convincing suspension of the laws of reality...the agelessness of the human story as told by one of this century's most evocative writers."
"Review" by , "A rich, commodious novel whose narrative power is matched only by its generosity of vision."
"Review" by , "A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy...humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching and altogether extraordinary."
"Review" by , "Revolutionary in daring to suggest that vows of love made under a presumption of immortality — youthful idiocy, to some — may yet be honored, much later in life when we ought to know better, in the face of the undeniable....a shining and heartbreaking book"
"Review" by , "It is a fully mature novel in scope and perspective, flawlessly translated, as rich in ideas as in humanity."
"Review" by , "In substance and style not as fantastical, as mythologizing, as the previous works, this is a compelling exploration of the myths we make of love."
"Synopsis" by , Set in a country on the Caribbean coast of South America, this is a story about a woman and two men and their entwined lives. From the author of the legendary One Hundred Years of Solitude.
"Synopsis" by , 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.

With humorous sagacity and consummate craft, Garcia Marquez traces an exceptional half-century story of unrequited love. Though it seems never to be conveniently contained, love flows through the novel in many wonderful guises — joyful, melancholy, enriching, ever surprising.
