Giving up a bit shy of halfway. It aches to leave books unfinished, but I've decided that I have too many books queueing up to be bothering with books that can't hold my interest. I'd like to say I'll pick up where I left when I have some extra extra time to spare, but I doubt it.

I enjoyed One Hundred Years Of Solitude, I think it was 2009. It was weird and wonderous. But this just struck me as a soap opera, but then written more fancifully. I don't know if it's the translation (it is not very modern, but as I recall, neither was the other one, and in that novel (100y) the old fashionedness of the language worked), or the fact that I'm not used to reading Dutch translations anymore or the lack of a magical touch that I liked a lot in Cien Años or my tastes changing over the year.

I did enjoy certain passages, but I was never enthralled, I was never sucked in, I never really cared what was going to happen next. Maybe I've grown too cynical for books about undying love, but I was bored, and growing more bored. So I'm giving up. It's a shame, I always feel like I'm missing out when I don't enjoy a classic that so many others love. But I don't think I get through another 300 pages of this, without losing valuable reading time for other books that I will enjoy more (like I did last year by insisting on finishing The Shining). Sorry Gabriel.

In fact, I grew so weary of this story and its period drama dullness, that I had to grab an antidote, injecting a much needed 10cc of silly, my old pal Douglas Adams.

I wish this had been a short story, or maybe a couple of them. I thought the beginning and ending were amazing, but the middle lagged, through repetition. And while the female characters are quite fascinating, they still remain in the shadow of the men. But at least I now know where the first John Archer book got its plot idea from. ( )

I first read this for a bookclub when I was 17, and I remembered it as a nice story, but nothing special. Then I reread it in college for two separate courses. Wow, reading it as an adult, it goes from being forgettable to cringe-worthy and gross.

The protagonist has a serious case of Nice Guy TM. Like take a 'No' and go away, dude. I hate this trope of the dude keeps pursuing the woman and eventually they end up together. It's rapey and icky.

And then there's the pedophilia. I don't know who decided that child-rape was fucking fancy, but WAY too much literary fiction has child rape in it. Towards the end of the book, the male protagonist adopts a pre-teen girl and they end up in a relationship. There is a part of me that wonders if maybe this was meant to be subversive (like maybe it was meant to critique the very trend I'm complaining about) bc the narrative was so over-the-top. He descibes this girl as having a "diaper smell" and really leans into the fact that she's so young. He infantilizes and sexualizes her all at once. I've decided that even if it is meant to be subversive, I'm not about it. While I was working on my M.A in English Lit, I had to read way more pedophilia than I ever wanted to. Just because something is taboo, that does not make it high literature. Between this, Lolita, Death in Venice, The Lovers, and far too many more, higher education has me child-raped out. I'm over it.

Then there's the whole "magical realism" thing. People love to call this magical realism. Why? Because of some ridiculous scene with a parrot and a doll that shows up from nowhere and has hair that grows on its own? Neither of those scenes were central to the plot at all, and I rally feel like the author jammed them in to be fancy-pants magical realism. Kafka's The Metamorphosis is magical realism, this is not.

And the story has nothing to do with cholera. The author just really wanted to put love and cholera in the title together to make the book sound way more dramatic than it actually is.

I gave it two stars because it is entertaining and kept my attention. No stars for anything else.

I didn't like this nearly as much as I had hoped to. It just seemed very flabby in the middle and felt like a much longer book to me than it actually was. ( )
  dllh | Jan 6, 2021 |
I hesitated between four or five stars, but the lingering feeling it leaves me after finishing it and the sorrow I feel for not having an extra chapter makes me believe a full five star rating is in order here.

There is so much love in this book! The word love is also used in almost every paragraph on every page.

Granted, not everything Márquez calls 'love' is worthy of the name (paedophilia, rape, stalking, ...), but love is definitely present in all its many forms in this book.

And it's so funny at the same time! Masterfully, we get to know about the intertwining lives of three main characters over the course of about seventy years on the turn of the 18th into the 19th century in an undefined, post-colonial Caribbean land. Time, love and age are perhaps the three most important themes of the tale, and they are carefully dissected and turned inside out with a tender touch of humour.

I loved this story! I just wish I knew enough Spanish to read it in its original language. ( )

Ik hou van mannen als Márquez. Wijze, erudiete mannen. Ze vertellen mij dat het niet verkeerd is om gematigd en rustig te zijn, of zelfs af en toe te twijfelen. In deze tijd van mediacratie, waar de makkelijk pratende mensen het voor het zeggen hebben, de vorm dus voor de inhoud gaat (en ik iedere keer merk dat ik, tot mijn grote ergernis, ook de neiging heb om aan die trend mee te doen) ervaar ik hen als een oase van rust. Een geruststellende hand op de schouder die zegt dat ik niet altijd op scherp hoef te staan en dat het misschien wel een goed idee is om even een pauze te nemen.

Suppose, then, it were possible, not only to swear love ''forever,'' but actually to follow through on it - to live a long, full and authentic life based on such a vow, to put one's alloted stake of precious time where one's heart is? This is the extraordinary premise of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's new novel ''Love in the Time of Cholera,'' one on which he delivers, and triumphantly.
