March Books 18) Love in the Time of Cholera, by Gabriel García Márquez

A great novel of two people in a Caribbean port of South America who fall in love when young, are parted by social circumstance, and then after fifty years are reunited. Full of careful observation of what love does to your soul and body, and of the different ways in which people deal with it. Not a lot to write about it except that I really enjoyed it.
