bookshelves: fiction, stuck-with-me

This is a sensual tale of unrequited love--requited. I know that is a paradox, sort of, but read the book, and you will understand. Florentino Ariza is the picture of the impoverished nerd, very much in love with a young woman who is a bit out of her league. When rejected by this love of his life, Florentino cycles through multiple liasons and recycles them, until fate presents to him the opportunity of his lifetime...read and learn more!

Gabriel García Márquez
“[The captain] looked at Florentino Ariza, his invincible power, his intrepid love and was overwhelmed by the belated suspicion that it is life, more than death, that has no limits.”
