Picked this up at today’s London evening meet up. Plan to use it to either trade or put in my Dagenham Little Free Library.

I have actually already read it. Here’s what I thought of it:
I wanted to read this book as it appears on a few lists that I am trying to read my way through (to diversify what I read).

Having also read One Hundred Years of Solitude for the same reason, left me beginning this book with dread! I didn't get One Hundred Years of Solitude and found it rather confusing and hard to follow.

I was really rather relieved to discover that was (generally) not the case with this book. I found it an interesting journey looking at peoples relationships. I think there are many accurate observations of both are contained amongst the pages of this book.

Having said all that tho, it is a pretty intense read. It took me far longer that a book of it's size normally would! I feel rather relieved to have finished it.

No takers yet, so I’ve reshuffled the Library and taken this one out for now. Plan to try again for a World Book Night event I want to try.

Journal Entry 8 by 4evagreen at Furness Vale, Derbyshire United Kingdom on Friday, May 22, 2020
The main theme of this novel is love-sickness. Garcia Marquez portrays it as a literal illness, comparable to cholera and Florentino suffers from it physically just as he might any malady. I had very low expectations before starting this novel and almost didn't start it at all but that really would have been a shame. This is a complex story which at times is a little overblown but IMHO Marquez successfully delivers a touching and at times amusing story that portrays not only the everlasting strength of 'first' love but also shines a light on the sometimes touchy topic of love in the older years particularly after a bereavement, as such this book deserves to be on the 1001 list despite finding the paedophilia element towards the end uncomfortable reading and unnecessary .

CONTROLLED RELEASE NOTES:

Going across the pond as a BookMooch. Enjoy!

Over a million people around the world give their books a unique BookCrossing IDentity number (BCID) before sending them out to find new readers. Since the start of the scheme in April 2001 more than ten million such books have been put into circulation. This is one of them!

Our hope is that we can track the progress of our books once they've left our hands - and that's possible if finders like you visit the website, key in the BCID and leave a comment, however long or short. It's fun, it doesn't have to cost anything, although the site always appreciates donations towards running costs, and you can remain anonymous if you wish. You don't have to join but if you do you'll be able to number and track your own books!
