Some say that Love in the Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garc??a M??rquez is the greatest love story ever told. Between it, and Shakespeare’s infamous tragedy Romeo and Juliet, it’s a tough call in my humble opinion. But then again, I have not read that many classics.

But thanks be to Wikipedia, you can get a feel for the story here.I just found out through the LibraryThing blog that this classic novel has finally been adapted into a movie, which is being coming to theaters November 16.
