The book Love in the Times of Cholera is exclusively about heterosexual love. It is still very enjoyable that way. I think it's one of the best books ever written about that thing called love. In their youth, Florentino Ariza and Fermina Daza fall passionately in love. When Fermina chooses to marry a wealthy, well born doctor, Florentino is devastated, but he is romantic. As he rises in his business career he whiles away the years in 622 affairs---yet he reserves his heart for Fermina. Her husband dies at last and Florentino purposefully attends the funeral. Fifty one years, nine months, and four days after he first declared his love for Fermina, he will do so again.
