You know that saying, no one can make you feel like a failure... Um, not true, this book makes me feel like one. This is one of the most beloved books of all time, but my brain could not handle everyone having similar names, and I kept having to consult the family tree at the beginning of the book! I renamed the characters just to keep them straight haha. I had an easier time understanding


True story.

When people ask me what I think of this book I tell them it has one of the most powerful endings I have ever read, that I can see why it is loved, but that I would have liked to have read a chapter about a George, Jose, or a person with any other name that does not start with A. I also say,
Love In The Time Of Cholera was easier for me to follow.

Cecily I agree about the names. I kept a note of them on a slip of paper and still got confused.

Autumn Brady So happy I am not alone.:) I can see why everyone likes it, but it was too much work for me to enjoy completely.
