Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez
If you’ve never read Márquez, do yourself a favor and immerse yourself in this modern classic ASAP! A love story that’s so much more than a love story, the most memorable idea that has stayed with me from this novel is a deeply comforting feeling that our lives are beautiful and valuable at every age.
I’ve been catching up on a lot of classic novels this summer – books and authors that I feel I should have read a long time ago but haven’t gotten around to yet. I decided I should post what I’m reading here on the Book Shop blog so you can read along with me if you’d like! I just started Love in the Time of Cholera.
Gabriel García Márquez is widely considered to be one of the most notable authors of the 20th century. Though he started his career as a journalist and nonfiction writer, he is best known for several acclaimed novels and for popularizing the literary style known as magical realism.
