9780140119909: Love in the Time of Cholera (Penguin Great Books of the 20th Century)

From the Nobel Prize-winning author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" comes a masterly evocation of an unrequited passion so strong that it binds three people's lives together for more than fifty years. In the story of Florentino Ariza, who waits more than half a century to declare his undying love to the beautiful Fermina Daza, whom he lost to Dr. Juvenal Urbino so many years before, Garcia Marquez has created a vividly absorbing fictional world, as lush and dazzling as a dream and as real and immediate as our own deepest longings.

Review:

No lover of fiction can fail to respond to the grace of Márquez's writing ( Sunday Telegraph)

A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy ( Newsweek)

An amazing celebration of the many kinds of love between men and women... among Márquez's best fiction ( The Times)

One of this century's most evocative writers ( Anne Tyler)

A delight. The interlocking of the stories, the fantastical and obsessional aspects of Márquez have never been better shown. ( Melvyn Bragg)

Few have written so passionately about the power of love ( Independent)
