The Plot :

In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina eventually chooses to marry a wealthy, well-born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is a romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs–yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last, and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.

Review :

I have been meaning to read this book for quite some time, and I finally managed to read it and it did not disappoint. I quite enjoyed the story spread across more than five decades. The author has a very unique style of writing that makes you feel he is sitting right beside you narrating the story.

I loved the subtle humour and the plot as a whole. The characters are quirky and the story as a whole is very readable. All in all I enjoyed the book.
