Love in the Time of Cholera
Love in the Time of Cholera | Gabriel Garcia Marquez
In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs--yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

Love in the Time of Cholera | Gabriel Garcia Marquez

The word love is in the title so surely it‘s a love story right? That misconception ended quickly. It felt like what reading Wuthering Heights felt like but from a different angle.

To describe the relations in the novel the word toxic comes to mind. It‘s about the toxicity that disguises itself as love. Maybe the toxic lover truly thinks what they have is love but that type of love is love for the sake of self not love given to another.

Kaag Slight detour from the novel here but maybe all love is ultimately for the sake of self when you really get down to it, but actions that show a selfless side, while ultimately still may be about self, surely they reveal a more true love than obsessive love right?

Anyways….
(edited) 1mo
Kaag Dr. Urbino and his wife Fermina Daza have an interesting relationship where subtle antagonisms (also, maybe not so subtle) dominate (and make us chuckle). (edited) 1mo
Kaag There seems to be two different readings to this novel. It‘s either seen as a sentimental love story or something of a warning about the sinister nature of obsession. The view taken by the reader depends on how you see Florentino Ariza, whether or not he pulls you in. I personally see him as little better than Humbert Humbert. An interesting book club double read would be this and Lolita. 1mo

$20 says the dude so upset that I called “Love in the Time of Cholera“ a romance that he felt the need to comment “What a dull and uninteresting little person you are“ is also deeply upset by Black mermaids yet argued in favor of a white actress playing the Major in Ghost in the Shell.

I‘m struggling to get through this one for #FoodandLit. I started it almost two weeks ago and enjoyed the first third of the book well enough… but then it really slowed down for me. I ended up putting it down over a week ago, and have no interest in picking it back up. I still have a little over half to go.

Has anyone read it? Should I DNF it, or give it another go? Thoughts?

staci.reads I made myself finish it when I read it a few years ago, and wish I had abandoned it. It is on so many "have to read" lists that I feel I'm really missing something, but, man, I did not like anything about it. 6mo

Graywacke I enjoyed it. Ok, I loved it and still love it hindsight. I thought it was romantic and funny and ridiculous and a curious commentary on love and disease…and that stuff that causes Cholera. (💩) And I enjoy the author‘s writing. But no fun to push through any book. Abandon. 6mo
perfectsinner Hated it 😐 5mo
Zoes_Human I ask myself two things about a book to decide if I'm going to DNF it:

1) Am I enjoying it?

2) Am I learning anything/improving from it?

If the answer to both is no, then bail. Life is finite, and I can think of nothing that is worth my precious time that doesn't meet at least one of those conditions.

Sapphire It is very slow in the middle and gets really good at the end. I vote for skimming in the middle. It‘s beautiful prose but if you aren‘t feeling it you will get as much from skimming and the sense of time passing till you get very near the end. 5mo

I finally finished Love in the Time of Cholera, and throughout I needed the advice to just “keep calm and carry on.” This is not my idea of a great love story, and many times I set it down and waited a while before picking it up again. Yet, when I read the final pages today, I can‘t quite say I hated how it all came together either. I do wish the parrot had been in the whole story. 🦜

Took me a while to get through this cause the prose is thick and I picked it up during a very transitory period of my life. Glad I read it though - the characters are fascinating. The magical realism elements are interesting are sparse but beautiful.

Less a book of plot, and more a novel of ideas and emotions, and unfortunately for me these were not, most of them, ideas and emotions I was interested in.

And that‘s basically what it comes down to….

There‘s lots of long sections where nothing is happening but descriptions of stuff that happened (tons of this being all the women the protagonist sleeps with), and I could not stay engaged.

I was THRILLED when it was finally over.

SamAnne Wasn‘t a fan either. 14mo

It‘s funny how you can be reading a section, like just a long paragraph, and all of a sudden dive in and take a great liking to it, even though it could be nothing but description, for example.

It‘s interesting to me because so much of the time it‘s just based on your mood at that particular moment. Then I‘ll decide I really like it for, it seems, barely any reason.

Anyway, just thought I‘d pop in to say that.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

“To him she seemed so beautiful, so seductive, so different from ordinary people, that he could not understand why no one was as disturbed as he by the clicking of her heels on the paving stones, why no one else's heart was wild with the breeze stirred by the sighs of her veils, why everyone did not go mad with the movements of her braid, the flight of her hands, the gold of her laughter...”

Poetic storytelling! An all-time favorite.

I started to read it 4 years ago and then I paused until a few days ago. I am not sure how everyone else felt this book but for me was the beauty of the ugliness. Except one episode that made me cringe, probably those who read felt the same about the relationship between Florentino Ariza and America Vicuna. But, the rest of the book is magical. Not good or bad, only magical. The magic of other times.

I put this book down long time ago & I know now why. Florentino loved Fermina for more than 50 years, can life give them a second chance? I loved how author described life style in different generations and changes in life span using beautiful daily and funny expressions. However, Florentino‘s love for me is obsessive & pathological. Triggers: pedophilia & rape with no remorse but fear to be caught. Unhealthy love-narcissistic personality 3⭐️

Gissy This is my second novel by this author and I think it doesn‘t work for me. In two novels, pedophilia is seen as “normal” expression of love which is not. No remorse exists in those characters. I know this is an uncommon opinion about this book and about this author.

I put down this book years ago and I know why in this reading. Maybe this author is not for me. Florentino loves Fermina for more than 50 years. Can they have a second chance? I loved how author described life style in different generations and stages of life, where he used beautiful, daily & funny expressions. However, I see Florentino‘s love as obsessed & pathological. Triggers: pedophilia & rape acts with not remorse but fear to be caught.3⭐️⬇️

marleed Yea, I read this last fall and thought I should get college credit for the accomplishment. Funny that I give a pick because I feel so accomplished even though I know I‘ll never revisit the book. Florentino was a dirtbag in my view, and I was never sure if the author wanted me to have sympathy for him 2y
Gissy @marleed What surprise me about the novel is that persons that love the book, love how Florentino loved Fermina for many years😬They don‘t even think it was not normal.Maybe the problem is that I saw it from a mental health perspective and Florentino has traits of Narcissistic personality plus his behavior correspond with pedophilia.Maybe if author tried to emphasized that, I would liked it more. But everything was “normal”, with tears in his eyes 2y

I planned this as a Sept Bookspin FreeSpace, but come Oct bit by bit I was still reading. I feel college-credit-accomplished in completing this - so many words in chapters that go on forever. I liked it, but I hope I wasn‘t supposed to cheer for Florentino Arizo to get his girl. He had 622 affairs - alright - until he grooms a young girl he sponsors. Not okay, dude.

Lesliereads I first read this book about 30 years ago and was so infatuated with the writing, then. When I re-read it earlier this year I was disgusted by Florentino Ariza and wondered why I had not seen him for what he was, before. 2y
Eva_B @Lesliereads I had exactly the same experience when re reading it years later. Maybe we are both older and wiser now 😊. My favourite Garcia Marquez book is One Hundred Years of Solitude. However, I have not re read it for many years. Might be interesting to see how I feel about it now. 2y
marleed @Lesliereads @Eva2 In addition to my take on Florentino, were multiple references to elderly smelling bad. It kind of broke my heart every time I read that. I‘ve been in the company of many an elderly person and I‘ve never thought their age made them smell bad. I find it interesting when I like a book overall even though there are parts that I viscerally dislike. 2y
BeatrixNBooks To be honest, I hoped from my bottom of my heart that Fermina would find out about America Vicuna. I was a little disappointed about the "happy ending". This was my first time when I wished for not such a happy ending. 2y

This social-distancing has been tough on many of us. Fear of public gatherings has driven us indoors, but instead of relief, we‘re hounded by a news cycle powered by hysteria and greeted by the feeling of being penned in. It‘s a toxic cocktail of agoraphobia and claustrophobia chased down by an uncertainty about what tomorrow is going to bring.
