Love in the Time of Cholera

Love in the Time of Cholera - Gabriel García Márquez, Edith Grossman Garcia Marquez writes with wit and charm and an astounding, though sometimes bizarre, perception into human nature. The book is true to its name, absolutely dripping with love and illness, and is kissed with a hint of magic realism that at time wavers on the line between sublime and ridiculous. I personally did not like the ending, though am not entirely sure if it is meant to be liked, but either way it is a beautiful, funny, and thought-provoking read with memorable and quirky characters.
