“If you love love, this book is the best love story ever,” Winfrey said Friday on her daytime talk show.
The novel by the Colombian-born Garcia Marquez was published in 1985. Set on the Caribbean coast of South America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it tells the tale of a woman and two men, and an unrequited love that spans 50 years.
“It is so beautifully written that it really takes you to another place in time and will make you ask yourself how long could you or would you wait for love,” Winfrey said.
Garcia Marquez, 80, won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1982. His most famous work, “One Hundred Years of Solitude,” was a selection in 2004 for Winfrey’s book club. Yahoo News
