Review: Memories of My Melancholy Whores - Gabriel García Márquez

Genre: Fiction (?)
Pages: 115
Rating: 4/5 Stars
Format: Small Hardcover

This little book packs so much emotion! It sounds creepy to be an old man of ninety who recounts his life and love affairs. As he nears the end of his life he wants a virgin of such a young age (fourteen!). This book takes you on a journey of life in every decade. You really have to read the poetry in this book to truly understand it's beauty and to accept what we would normally not. I would like to think that I can have such emotions as I near such a late stage in life. He is old but the way he speaks you would never know it.
