Day 974 – #7 Complete the BBC Big Read Top 100 Books

choleraAnother one down!  Only two to go now 🙂
I really wasn’t looking forward to this one.  I read 100 Years of Solitude and hated it.  I found it really tedious and I thought this one would be similar.

In actual fact I actually quite enjoyed it.  I found the lack of chapters annoying though.  It felt like I was just cutting off part way through the story and it felt quite disjointed.

Having said that, I was interested in the story.  Fermina Daza was a strong female lead and although I didn’t particularly like her, I found her character intriguing.  I wanted to keep reading and find out how the triangle with Juvenal Urbino and Florentino Ariza played out.

I wouldn’t read it again but it was worth reading once.
