Death of a Salesman Arthur Miller. On Photography Susan Sontag. Homage to Catalonia George Orwell. Breakfast at Tiffany's Truman Capote. The writing is nothing short of masterful. My problem is that the protagonist, at least for the majority of the book, is a reprehensible human being.
He falls in love at a very young age even though he's never actually talked to the girl, only exchanging notes, and maintained this obsession for his lifetime. She marries another after firmly rejecting him.
It is incomprehensible to me that he sustains this for over 50 years. During that time, even though he is described as somewhat slovenly in his appearance and not attractive, he manages to voraciously bed multiple women, some for one time some as ongoing lovers.
He only truly "loves" one person. A girl sent to him for protection who he seduces at the age of fourteen after grooming her for a few years. So we are supposed to be heartened when in his 70's he finally "gets the girl. Be warned, this is a long and complex book, not an easy read. Not because it wasn't well written but because I hated the characters and the overall theme.
Not sure why everyone loves this one so much.
That's my honest review. Take it how you wish. Dark but some deep laughs along the way! Paperback Verified Purchase. This stunning work captures the feelings of love and tragedy all in one. Of course, the author is very famous for this and other works.
Be ready for a dark road down a very interesting path as the years go by in the lives of the two main characters. There is a little funny business about his sexual exploits but I don't want to give away the special way he worded things. Gotta read it!
I almost put this book down and didn't finish it more than once. But I forged on due to a good friend's gushing response to it so thought I had to finish it to see what I might miss otherwise. The story was very tedious and too many switch backs in time to confuse.
Characters were not worth all the many many pages given them.
I didn't embrace, identify with, or sympathize with any of them. Would NOT recommend this book to anyone I know, including my book group. The writing evokes a time and place that feel real.
The Caribbean at the turn of the century. This is glossed over. There is little love in this story despite an obsession with it. Spending all this time with reprehensible or unlikable or sad characters is unsatisfying, though I did like the ending. The skillful writing is the best reason to read it.
The somewhat languid pace of the novel fits with the times, the climate, and the social mores of the setting. It also enables a nuanced exploration of the kinds of love experienced by the main characters in the story. It could be argued that the central theme of the relationship between the two primary characters is somewhat farfetched, but when does love follow a formula except in rom-coms?
While not a page-turner, the story remains engaging throughout. The author has a lovely way with words as captured by his English translator that brings the texture of people, time and place to vivid life.
I thought the author let the primary male character off the hook for his poor judgment in the final of many love relationships before returning to his lifelong inamorata.
But maybe it is also my own biases intruding. All in All, a great read from an author of almost magical word-power. I've always been heavy I absolutely adore this book. I've always been heavy into Russian literature and was interested in reading something different - this book hit the spot. Marquez has a way of writing that entices you and makes you never want to put this book down. His romantic vocabulary as well as vivid writing style really grabbed me.
