More Favourites

Love in the Time of Cholera
by Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Terri's favourite:
"Love in the Time of Cholera" is a love story in all it's guises; young love, married love,romantic love, carnal love, even love with the symptoms of cholera. It takes fifty years, nine months and four days for unrequited love to become fulfilled almost at the end of life. This shows that love can blossom  even in your 70's! For me this is an unforgettable journey about love.


The Old Man and the Sea
by Ernest Hemingway

Rob appreciates this book for the strong sense of character that shows the dynamics of life.  The sea and this story about the sea, represent life with its great accomplishments that eventually fade.  It is a beautiful story.

The drama of choosing
favourite book!

These pictures show Rob's great sense of humour in spite of his health challenges.
He also is a fan of Gabriel Garcia Marquez,
 really appreciating "A Hundred Years of Solitude" and "Love in the time of Cholera". 
Another important book for him is "On The Road" by Jack Kerouac.

  1. This is one of my all-time favorite books. I remember reading the last page...the last sentence and it was such a satisfying and perfect end to such an amazing story. Made me a Gabriel Garcia Marquez fan, and I immediately read everything that I could find that he'd written.
