  1. This book starts off very slowly and almost slyly, as if someone has started telling a long winded story and you re really not paying attention, and then, halfway through the story you realize that you re hanging onto every word If Garcia Marquez explored the metaphor or love as a disease in Love in the Time of Cholera , then here he centers his story around the metaphor of love as madness and demonic possession I think the metaphor actually works better than the cholera one This book feels much [...]

  4. Instead of writing a review by jotting down my bleak understanding of the glorious book by Gabo I thought of weaving a little tale based on it and using the characters along with the principle symbolism in the book Disbelief is resistant than faith because it is sustained by the senses As always I,Father Delaura lost focus and stumbled on my way to the Bishop s room where I was invited to witness an eclipse In the cloistered silence I found the bishop in a pensive mood holding a smoked glass in [...]

  6. This was not the first book of Marquez s that I have read I read Love in the Time of Cholera when I was in my late teens I found it so utterly surreal and unlike anything I had ever experienced before I wasn t sure if I liked it, precisely, but I knew that I wanted I was gripped by it, possessed by it, which was not quite the same experience as liking a novel, exactly.The next one I picked up after that was this one Of Love and Other Demons I can safely say that I felt the same way about this o [...]

  8. This book was like a punch in the gut And it left me with little to no words, so this review will be short and vague so as to not spoiling anything.Set in the 18th century, 12 year old Sierva Mar a is bitten by a dog and people believe her to be posessed by a demon Thus they send her to a convent where Cayetano Delaura meets her and falls in intense love.Honestly, it s very simple, and yet there s so much in it The writing is so atmospheric, and this is enhanced by the subtle magical realism in [...]

  9. I have always drawn parallels between Marquez and Murakami not only because of the common element of magical realism so discernible in their works, but also because of their talent for splendid imagery.But it goes without saying, there s a pronounced difference between their styles as well While I understood perfectly well that Murakami likes to crack open the spine of a city bustling with life and activity on the surface and fish out its soul from the intimidating depths of its anatomy, Marquez [...]

  10. 2.5 estrellas.El primer libro que leo de Gabriel Garc a M rquez y tengo que decir que me gust Es una novela corta, que se lee en una sentada Qu lejos estamos De qu De nosotros mismos.El inicio es interesante, aunque tengo que admitir que me cost involucrarme con la historia Luego todo se empieza a esclarecer en el segundo cap tulo y, a partir de ah , el relato se disfruta mucho m s.No hay medicina que cure lo que no cura la felicidad.En algunas partes se me hizo bastante pesado por el modo de na [...]

  11. It seems this is one you either love or are indifferent to I found myself leaning toward the indifferent The underlying story of a young girl being removed from the comforts of wealth based upon misdiagnosis and ignorance is of itself fascinating, the scene setting fabulous To overlay that with a doomed romance between a handsome priest and a prepubescent girl is heady stuff, then further layered with themes of the demonic and the insane, and yet it simply failed to enliven my senses Maybe prese [...]

  12. I recently watched the movie version of this book, and I did not love it, mostly because I only understand the most rudimentary of Spanish and the movie s English subtitles were horrible Regardless, I still bawled like a baby, because Of Love and Other Demons is one of the most, if not the most, tragic story I ve ever had the pleasure of reading.Of Love and Other Demons is the story of a pre teen girl Sierva Maria, her affliction which is mistaken as demon possession and her days with Father Cay [...]

  13. Really incredible This was only a very short book but every sentence was really beautiful and I just took my time to savour every word.I m not sure what magical realism is but it this is magical realism then I love it Not only did Marques write amazing prose but he was also a great storyteller.Have read a good few of his books but now must read them all

  14. My favorite Gabo book so far and I ve read than one or two I was just going to leave it at that, but since I just finished it, I may as well write down why it merits space on my favorites shelf while I still have the taste of black beans and rice in my mouth and the smell of the ocean in my hairFirst, I am happy to see in other reviews that I m not the only one who s noticed the trend of men falling in love with prepubescent girls in Gabo s works that wasn t the author we studied in college But [...]

  15. Marquez begins his story with a note In this note, he describes arriving at a convent in the process of being emptied and turned into a luxury hotel Laborers unearthed three generations of bishops and abbesses and other eminent personages until, at last, they came to a niche of the high altar where they found the tomb of a twelve year old girl called Sierva Maria de Todos Los Angeles She had hair the color of copper and it flowed out of her head twenty two metres long And so a story is born Marq [...]

  17. Disbelief is resistant than faith because it is sustained by the senses The Enemy makes better use of our intelligence than of our errors Dominga de Adviento, a black women, believed in two religions at the same time because what she did not find in one faith was there in the other Dulce Olivia found consolation in nostalgia of her unrequited love Once I was speaking to my room mate I told him about the helplessness of people in India Sometimes their senses are so raped by the misery or misshap [...]

  18. This is perhaps the most disturbing love story that I ve ever read EVER But that s what makes it so hauntingly great I have slowly been working through Gabriel Garcia Marquez s books, and I ve yet to be disappointed by his work This is such a fascinating tragic tale of love that it completely supersedes Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet in my opinion A tale that brings to question love, faith, parenthood and so much You have a young girl, thought to be demonic and possessed, who was bitten by a do [...]

  20. I must admit that while I enjoyed this immensely, I did not enjoy it as much as most other Marquez It isn t just that I have grown tired of his pedophilia storylines, though that doesn t help, but rather that this story doesn t do as interesting job of blending the real and the fantastic and the moment that opens the story, so beautiful in its absurdity, seems to bear little resemblance to the story that follows, which is a shame because a concentration on the fantastic, rather than the mundane [...]

  21. Yummy, captivating reading, from the very first sentence There s a lot of blah about the book, just look around, plenty of reviews and opinions everything is magic of course, and the story telling , oh the story telling is absolutely fantastic, so I ll just make a confession I have a terrible, secret passion for priests who fall madly in love and run away with the object of their desire, go nuts or do something crazy Here, not so secret any mental debate on who s a better story teller Marquez o [...]
