Want to read one of the best love stories ever written?
Read ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’ by Gabriel Garcia Marquez!
It is such a fascinating, such a neatly tied, such a tragically beautiful novel that one can’t forget the tale that is ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’.
Those who doubt love and consider it as a calculation; addition, subtraction, division and multiplication can find enough reason to change their stand and develop faith in love which make this world beautiful and worthy of living.
While reading ‘The Love in the Time of Cholera’ some lines from Rumi was poking into my mind.
‘Choose love, choose love
Without this beautiful love
Life is nothing but a burden.’
What make a great lover and great love stories? I think persistence, consistency and unconditional devotion to the beloved which is immovable in time, unchangeable and pure all the way.
If some of you doubt whither it is possible to have a pure love can take a challenge of visiting the mind blowing story of ‘Love in the Time of Cholera’.
The journey of reading these pages will fill up the mind of a reader with sighs and sorrows.
Some emotional reader may find it hard to control his/her tears and wet the pages! Such a touchy story!
The story of Fermina Daza, Dr Juvenal Urbino and Florentino Ariza begins ‘in medias res’ (from the middle). Then it starts unfolding across the pages till the end.
Ah! Fermina Daza! Ah! Florentino Ariza! Ah! Dr. Juvenal Urbino! How much it takes to build such an enticing story! Ah! Gabbo, the maestro!
