Love in the Time of Cholera

This was our book club book for December and I'm sorry to say that I only read half of it. The half I read was so beautiful. But then those who had finished it said that the rest of it gets quite graphic sexually in a way they described as "foul". So, I'm going to have to put this one aside. However, one person did highly recommend his One Hundred Years of Solitude, so I may try that after I get over my disappointment.

Hey! (It's Emilia Smith, btw) I think that to truly appreciate any of his books, you need to be high. Having never been high, I hate them.

I disagree with the last comment. This author definitely is in a different head space then most but I don't think you need to be high. I also don't remember the second half of Love in the Time of Cholera as being full of foul sexual content. One Hundred Years is one of my all time favourite books and one I've reread more than once - I highly recommend it.

I actually purchased Love in the Time of Cholera because the queue was too long. I hear such widely different reviews of it. I may get back to it someday. One Hundred Years of Solitude is on the TBR list!
