Descripción del producto
It's spellbinding-a luminous novel by a master of storytelling.-- "Joseph Heller, New York Times bestselling author"
A spacious mirror image of the novel that made him famous...The constant, throbbing fascination here is the shock of recognition.-- "Time"
A rich, commodious novel whose narrative power is matched only by its generosity of vision.-- "New York Times"
A love story of astonishing power and delicious comedy...humane, richly comic, almost unbearably touching, and altogether extraordinary.-- "Newsweek"
They are interesting characters whose sometimes bizarre proceedings interact with the peculiarities of the society they inhabit to create a wonderfully vivid and convincing world...What more can be asked of a novelist?-- "Atlantic"
Armando Duran's bold performance of this much-loved novel is infused with energy and enthusiasm...Duran's pronunciations and his navigation of complex sentences are smooth and artful, offering lively characters and animated descriptions...Duran is a skilled narrator whose affection for the material seems real.-- "AudioFile"
Thoroughly engrossing on the highest artistic level. It is easily his best work since One Hundred Years of Solitude...His vision is exalting.-- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"
The greatest luxury, as in all of Garcia Marquez's books, is the eerie, entirely convincing suspension of the laws of reality...the agelessness of the human story as told by one of this century's most evocative writers.-- "Chicago Sun-Times Book Week"
Oh boy-does he write well. He writes with impassioned control, out of a maniacal serenity: the Garcimarquesian voice we have come to recognize from the other fiction has matured, found and developed new resources, been brought to a level where it can at once be classical and familiar, opalescent and pure, able to praise and curse, laugh and cry, fabulate and sing, and when called upon, take off and soar...There is nothing I have read quite like this...[A] shining and heartbreaking book.-- "Thomas Pynchon, National Book Award-winning author"
This is a beautiful story, beautifully told, and it should not be missed by any reader of literary fiction.-- "Booklist (starred review)"
Reseña del editor
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 two people's lives together for more than half a century.
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 does so again.
With humorous sagacity and consummate craft, Gabriel Garcia Marquez traces an exceptional half-century of unrequited love. Though it seems never to be conveniently contained, love flows through the novel in many wonderful guises-joyful, melancholy, enriching, and ever surprising.Ver Descripción del producto

For most of the book, I thought it was a tragedy not a love story. I disagree with many reviewers, it was not a book about unrequited love, because Florentino Ariza was never in love. Even though Florentino Ariza was successful in a worldly sense, I felt sorry for him. He never loved Fermina Daza, they were never much more than acquaintances. He wasted his entire life being in love with the idea of being in love, but never understanding what love is. Love is not a disease, it is not infatuation, it is not lust, it is not an extreme form of like. For most of his life, his love was about himself, even when he was proud to be suffering for it. Only at the very end did he realize that love is about the one being loved, it is something you do; love is a verb, not a state of being. Also, only at the end of the book did I really understand the title of the book.
