El realismo magico de Garcia Marquez es algo ausente por gran parte de esta historia; aunque ciertamente existen algunos momentos magicos, son muy pocos y escasos.
En cuanto a estilo, es notable que fue escrito por Garcia Marquez: En mi sincera opinion, son casi hojas donde no ocurre nada. Florentino se la pasa admirando a Fermina de lejos. Casi nunca tienen contacto, mas sin embargo cuando lo tienen es algo especial. Este libro contiene muchos detalles sin importancia, por ejemplo, se realata mucho de lo que sucede en la ciudad.
Puedes considerar esto como un ejemplo de 'world building', pero yo lo consideraria como un detrimento para la historia. Pero bueno, al final y al cabo, es una buena historia; no se puede describir este libro como un fracaso porque ciertamente no lo es, pero tampoco se puede llamar un exito revolucionaro porque simplemente -en mis ojos- es otra historia de muchas otras. Pero si como yo, buscas estudiar un poco mas el estilo de Garcia Marquez este es un excelente ejemplo.
Recomiendo totalmente este libro para todo fan de este autor. Es una gran obra de un aun gran autor. Otra cosa: La textura del libro es impresionante.
Espero que esto te ayude: One person found this helpful. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This is my favorite of Marquez' books--poignant, brutally real,and somehow hopeful.
Not since Jane Austin has an author explored the concept of love to this depth: Marquez jumps around in time as usual, and if this bothers you he's not for you. Time doesn't exist in his world. Also true to his style, he discloses the end at the beginning, or most of the end. I think that's why I like this novel the most. It holds some surprises.
Marquez has created a long, detailed account of a life from young adulthood to old age. The foreplay goes on forever so that you want to say "Enough already! Audible Audiobook Verified Purchase. Se puede mejorar? How can anyone criticize this author.
Urbino proves in the end not to have been an entirely faithful husband, confessing one affair to Fermina many years into their marriage. Though the novel seems to suggest that Urbino's love for Fermina was never as spiritually chaste as Florentino's was, it also complicates Florentino's devotion by cataloging his many trysts as well as a few potentially genuine loves.
By the end of the book, Fermina comes to recognize Florentino's wisdom and maturity, and their love is allowed to blossom during their old age.
The story occurs mainly in an unnamed port city somewhere near the Caribbean Sea and the Magdalena River. While the city remains unnamed throughout the novel, descriptions and names of places suggest it is based on Cartagena with the addition of the Magdalena River, which meets the sea at the nearby city of Barranquilla.
Some critics choose to consider Love in the Time of Cholera as a sentimental story about the enduring power of true love. Others criticize this opinion as being too simple. This is manifested by Ariza's excessively romantic attitude toward life, and his gullibility in trying to retrieve the sunken treasure of a shipwreck.
It is also made evident by the fact that society in the story believes that Fermina and Juvenal Urbino are perfectly happy in their marriage, while the reality of the situation is not so ideal. Critic Keith Booker compares Ariza's position to that of Humbert Humbert in Vladimir Nabokov 's Lolita , saying that just as Humbert is able to charm the reader into sympathizing with his situation, even though he is a "pervert, a rapist, and a murderer," Ariza is able to garner the reader's sympathy, even though the reader is reminded repeatedly of his more sinister exploits.
The novel examines romantic love in myriad forms, both "ideal" and "depraved", and continually forces the reader to question such ready-made characterizations by introducing elements antithetical to these facile judgments. Florentino suffers from this just as he might suffer from any malady. At one point, he conflates his physical pain with his amorous pain when he vomits after eating flowers in order to imbibe Fermina's scent.
In the final chapter, the Captain's declaration of metaphorical plague is another manifestation of this. The English adjective choleric has the same meaning.
Considering this meaning, the title is a pun: The two men can be contrasted as the extremes of passion: Florentino's passionate pursuit of nearly countless women stands in contrast to Urbino's clinical discussion of male anatomy on their wedding night. Urbino's eradication of cholera in the town takes on the additional symbolic meaning of ridding Fermina's life of rage, but also the passion.
It is this second meaning to the title that manifests itself in Florentino's hatred for Urbino's marriage to Fermina, as well as in the social strife and warfare that serves as a backdrop to the entire story. Jeremiah Saint-Amour's death inspires Urbino to meditate on his own death, and especially on the infirmities that precede it. It is necessary for Fermina and Florentino to transcend not only the difficulties of love but also the societal opinion that love is a young person's prerogative not to mention the physical difficulties of love when one is older.
