5.0 out of 5 stars
excellent book, 2 May 2014
this was the first book I read using my new kindle and i managed to finish it within 48 hours!
having read the better known Marquez books (Love in the time of Cholera, 100 years of solitude etc) I presumed I'd read the best of his work, but 'Of love and other demons' was a beautiful book; original, imaginative and wonderfully descriptive. As always his characters were elaborate and the story full of spirits, demons and fantasy (but not in a silly Harry Potter way).
I dont think Marquez's style is for everyone - people who prefer more 'down-to-earth' books would probably find his eccentric story-telling and fantastical quirks a little annoying and far-fetched. but i am definitely a fan.
