From page one you can feel the humidity, smell the tropical plants, hear the sqawking of the birds and feel the fever of unrequited love. The writing style takes a little getting used to, but it soon becomes sincerely poetic and humorously human. Will Florentino Ariza ever be cured of his love for Fermina Daza?

My all time favorite quote:

“his examination revealed that he had no fever, no pain anywhere, and that his only concrete feeling was an urgent desire to die. All that was needed was shrewd questioning…to conclude once again that the symptoms of love were the same as those of cholera.”

Gabriel Garcia Marquez

“Shoot me for there is no greater glory than to die for love.”
