The cover of the book Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márquez

Love in the Time of Cholera | Book by Gabriel García Márquez

Gabriel García Márquez’ writing takes everyday situations and infuses them with magic — as a reader, you’re constantly swinging from magic to reality to the grey area between the two.

Love in the Time of Cholera is a story of love, loss and ageing. In typical Márquez style, the book jumps between time periods and between characters, carrying the reader through a whirlwind of events over five decades. The setting, in a fictional port town close to the Caribbean Sea (probably in Colombia), is totally captivating — after reading, I felt like I had actually travelled the length of the Magdalena River myself.
