From the Nobel Prize-winning author of "One Hundred Years of Solitude" comes a masterly evocation of an unrequited passion so strong that it binds three people's lives together for more than fifty years. In the story of Florentino Ariza, who waits more than half a century to declare his undying love to the beautiful Fermina Daza, whom he lost to Dr. Juvenal Urbino so many years before, Garcia Marquez has created a vividly absorbing fictional world, as lush and dazzling as a dream and as real and immediate as our own deepest longings.

4.0 Love in the Time of Cholera
Not so fond of 20th century translated literature. Actually considered giving up on this around half way through. I really prefer linear stories and this was making me sea sick. However. I'm glad I stuck it out and read through to the last page. It was satisfying in the end.

4.0 Miłość w czasach zarazy
Rewelacyjnie opisana miłość, bez owijania w bawełnę, bez pudru, cukiereczków i ciasteczek. Mocna w wymowie, miejscami nawet brutalna. Warto przeczytać, oczywiście ze zrozumieniem.

4.5 Miłość w czasach zarazy
Moja ulubiona powieść Marqueza, zupełnie nie rozumiem popularności "Stu lat samotności" skoro ten sam autor napisał to arcydzieło. Uwielbiam, jak autor przeciwstawia wielką, dramatyczną miłość zwykłemu życiu, szarej, ale stabilnej i w gruncie rzeczy szczęśliwej codzienności i pozwala bohaterce wybra...
