Love in the Time of Cholera: Illustrated Edition

We rated this book:


Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ timeless classic gets a beautiful remodel in this illustrated edition of Love in the Time of Cholera. As a classic literature enthusiast myself, I love finding publications of old texts that make them feel more modern, and I especially appreciate print versions with larger fonts and spacing. It makes my reading experience feel quicker and smoother. This new print of Love in the Time of Cholera possesses all these wonderful qualities with the added bonus of gorgeous painted illustrations throughout the text. Marquez’ writing is captivating, bringing characters to life on its own, but the illustrations make the rich setting and imagery all the more vivid.

The story itself is, of course, a treasure. Marquez has the gifted ability to transport readers back to a time long ago, in a country few people remember as it once was, and he captures the many different kinds of love in this world so richly. From the strong and lovely Fermina Daza, to the enigmatic Juvenal Urbino, to the unwieldy Florento Ariza, Love in the Time of Cholera asks readers to question what love is through this story spanning a lifetime.
