Gabriel Garcia Marquez is famous at the first place for his novel One Hundred Years of Solitude for which he received the Nobel Prize. However, this book Love in the Time of Cholera is not less interesting and fascinating. Here strong love and unrestrained passion are interlaced. In this fictional world we see the fates of three people who are to be together for more than fifty years creating a peculiar love triangle that consists of Florentino Ariza who loves boundlessly charming Fermina Daza. Although many years ago the woman preferred another man, Dr. Juvenal Urbin, Ariza cannot do anything with his love. The story is very bright and creative, full of hopes and romance.
