A. (almas) I saw the movie (English), but I read the book in Arabic.

I'll try to participate in the discussion :)


Juan Rodríguez (jaycer1) | 1 comments I just wanted to commend you for reading one of Latin America's greatest pens.

I've always said that I'd like to read "El Gabo" in English to see if the magic is still there; it's kind of blasphemy down here to read him in any other language.

I would love to see what you thought.

I've heard the movie wasn't very good, and one of the reasons was the English with the Spanish accent.

Niledaughter It is from 15 Nov to 15 Dec :D

I have not read much lately , almost 2 chapters and I also watched the movie (can not say I liked it!) .

In chapter one I liked reading about The Society and its development . I was always curious about the differences between the Spanish and British culture dealing with the new world - this is my real first read from latin America let alone Colombia - I know this may not be the right novel for that but at least I can get a closer image of the independence era , so sad to read about civil wars .

In chapter one I loved the way author described the marriage life in 50 years , and I think I am attracted to this path more than the main story ;the passionate obsessed love story of Florentino .
