    LET ME EXPLAIN, GUYS.Okay I like Marquez I think his writing is beautiful, his settings are evocative and masterfully portrayed, and yes, his books are pretty romantic, and I always enjoy magical realism this one could have used of that last bit, though The last twenty pages of the book even manged to suck me into the romance of the story, and I found myself finally really invested in this love story instead of being vaguely creeped out we ll get there Look, I even found a really ni

    I previously read One Hundred Years of Solitude and I liked it a lot, and I was intruiged by the title Love in the Time of Cholera so I thought I d read it.Within the first few pages I had the inkling I didn t like it, but sometimes it takes books a little while to get warmed up Plus, I don t like starting a book and not finishing it, because I know I ll never go back to a book I stopped reading because I didn t like it, and if I stop reading it, I ll never know if I would have liked the re

    I don t like this book.I don t like the characters This was going to be a list, but then I realized that this is the only reason I have Florentino Ariza is a baby Seriously, his mom gives him whatever he wants, and she tries to make everything all right for him, and he is very, very if he lived today, he would be one of those emo kids with the dyed black hair and the eye liner and the journals full of bad poetry he does write bad poetry, in the book , all Nobody gets me, and just a gr

    I feel suspicious about the fact that I didn t fall for this book the way Florentino Ariza fell for Fermina Daza I am compelled to blame my lack of appreciation on poor reader comprehension rather than GGM S writing, because only one of us won the nobel prize and I m pretty sure it wasn t me However, I m no idiot either, so I ll at least take the liberty to explain my grievances 1 As a synesthete, I found Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza s names to be WAY too similar They look the same I

    I learned that I will never be a great writer, because sometimes, there are people like Marquez, who manage to write such an amazing piece of art without making it ponderous, pretentious, or difficult It s not really about the plot, is it A guy is in love with a girl, and waits for her for 50 odd years, while conducting his own affairs Here s the thing, though The way the story is told is segue free, almost conversational, but with such sumptuous detail and description, that it can only be e

    One of the few writers I have read who can show sex convincingly on the page, so that it reinforces character and extends action, and doesn t become a narrative sinkhole in which entropy prevails.Depressingly great One of those books one knows one could never write yet still one wishes pointlessly that one could do so.Laden with vivid detail It moves almost flawlessly, from sequence to sequence with nary a foot put wrong in terms of diction or tone.Relentless storytelling, like diamonds
