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)
