Title: Memories of My Melancholy Whores
Author: Gabriel Garcia Marquez
Yearly Count: 69
When one old man turned ninety he decided to surround himself in the young love virgin. Gabriel Garcia Marquez takes the reader on a journey, a well written but somewhat naive journey into the realm of aging, virginity and what it all could cost.
To be quite frank I don't know why I read this book , other than that it was the only one of Gabriel Garcia Marquez there to choose from that I hadn't read. I didn't like it. However I could still see glimpses of the man who won the Nobel prize for Literature. This was his first book in ten years! It seems to me he would have had much more to say than what he said.
That is about as good as my review gets for this one, sorry folks...not a book for me.
