Book Review: Love in the Time of Cholera



Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

This was the selected read for our library book discussion group, and one I had no read previous to selecting it (it was chosen by one of our members).

Marquez is a well-respected author who can really turn a phrase, but wow, I struggled with this book. Pages and pages that are only one paragraph, very little dialogue and a slow, meandering story that runs hundreds of pages. I like Marquez' prose, but found myself really bogged down in the style of writing, and ended up skimming huge chunks of the book.

But at least I can say I read it!
