Although only a couple of us actually finished the book, the latest book discussion evening was filled with floods of conversation as we all caught up on everybody’s summer holiday antics.

Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel García Márque had been the summer read and despite having longer to finish it, most in the group did not enjoy its non-existent chapters and dense text. However, a handful made it to the end and some others had read it several years ago, and they assured the rest of the group it was worth sticking with it.

For those that had given up, Anita was keen to express that they had missed out on many funny parts of the story, some of which she had written down to share with the group. We all agreed, especially when it came to the part of the “edible dogs”. Estela, who had to read several Gabriel Garcia Marquez books in high school, was also keen to note that some of his other titles were much better.

With the new insights into the novel, a couple of those that were just half way through promised to keep with it and get to the end.

Aside from book-centered chats, everybody shared stories from their summer trips, while drinking tea and nibbling on cheese Kindly provided by Estela in her lovely, cosy apartment.
