Re: New Love in the Time of Cholera Movie

Hello Everyone,
I just found the movie's actual website. The website address is http://www.loveinthetime.com/

Jessica, I will be going to see the movie. Before I see the movie, I want to finish the book and discuss it with the rest of you.

Re: New Love in the Time of Cholera Movie

I totally agree! Let's all finish the book before the movie comes out! (I always like to compare, anyway.)

Re: New Love in the Time of Cholera Movie

I desperately want to see this movie, but as it's rated R, I can't get in without a parent/guardian, and there is no way I'm going to be allowed to see it... I'll just have to wait awhile, I guess. It looks great, though. :smileyhappy:

Re: New Love in the Time of Cholera Movie

Hi Marquez,

What do you like best about the book? (Do you have a favorite scene or character?)

I think my favorite thing about the book is that all throughout, there are so many references to the ravages of aging, and the many ways people try desparately to sidestep them. Yet at the end of the book, when Fermina and Florentino are in their 70s, that's when their love finally gets to bloom ... despite the wrinkles, smells, aches, and pains.

Are you looking forward to the movie?

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello from the great state of Texas! I read the book in Spainish as part of my college spainish class. For the complete enjoyment of this book--read it in Spainish, it's beautiful! Anyhow, what a great book...it really has a relatively nice depth and expression. Quite enjoyable, also I really hope to offer my feelings on this piece of literature from a man's perspective. Looking forward to future discussion with all of you!

Re: Introduce Yourself

Hello,

My name is lisa... I live in Northern California... I was given "love in the Time of Cholera" by a friend of mine a few years ago in spanish... I read that book 4 times... It is one of the best love stories written. He is an amazing writer. I love to read, but it is very hard for me to finish a book. If I am not grabbed by the writer in the first couple pages, I will never pick the book up again.. The first time I read it... I read the book in 2 days.... I wanted to know more... I read the same book in english about a month ago.

Re: Introduce Yourself

Greetings everyone! Love in the Time of Cholera is the first novel by M�rquez I'm reading. I have read his much-anthologized short story "A Very Old Man with Enormous Wings" several times. I look forward to discussing the book with you all!
