“A brilliantly moving tour de force.”
—A.S. Byatt, The New York Times Book Review

“A work of considerable beguilement and edge. . . . García Márquez retains a vital and remarkable voice, and the pen of an angel.”
Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Captivating. . . . Evokes the texture of a civilization, while its emotional range, from the comic to the mystical, exhibits a reach rarely found in fictions on a larger scale.”
The Boston Globe

“Luminous. . . . Demonstrates that one of the masters of the form is still working at the height of his powers.”
The New York Times


This bitter, powerfully moving love story carefully recreating colonial mores in the tropics is Marquez back as the master-fabulist. (19941212)

Book Review Of Love and Other Demons by Gabriel Garcia Marquez, edited by Edith Grossman As usual, Marquez weaves a fantastic tale, one filled with magic and miracles. And, as usual, I am captivated, putting aside my scientific beliefs, my rational analysis for a tale that sweeps me up in the history of the times by bathing the tragic illness and death of the child Sierva Maria De Todos Los Angeles in love, mysticism and seduction. This tale hinges on very usual circumstances for the times: in 1949 the author worked for a newspaper in Columbia and, on a slow news day, the editor asked him to take a trip to the Convent of Santa Clara to watch the emptying of tombs in an effort to scare up some news. Upon his arrival, Marquez was dumbfounded to find a small crypt above the altar filed to overflowing with red hair which, when stretched out on the floor, measured 22 meters, eleven centimeters. This hair, the remnants of Sierva Maria De Todos, was the mark of her beauty when the twelve year old child was alive and the mark of her sainthood after she died from rabies soon after her twelfth birthday. Many came to pray to the niche, hoping for blessings from the young saint and from this tale Marquez constructed his story of her life. We meet Marquez's Sierva Maria on her twelfth birthday when she is roaming the market with her servant and, upon roaming too far, gets bitten by a dog above her ankle. Later, when that dog is found dead, Sierva Maria's downfall begins as every unusual trait of hers is attributed at first to the illness and later to demonic possession when she does not actually fall ill from the bite. Added to this central drama is the negligence of her parents, Bernarda Cabera and the Marquis de Casalduero, due to her mother's drug addiction and her father's apathy. Lesen Sie weiter... ›

Von Ms. Peach
Even if you are like me and do not tolerate most love stories, you will savor this one. The author coaxes the reader into the book with a preface describing the excavation of an ancient nunnery during which is found the skull of a young girl whose copper hair continues to grow. The novel itself concerns the somewhat sickly, neglected child, Sierva Maria who is considered to be possessed by demons after having been bitten by a rabid dog. At her birth, her father, the Marquis, makes a deal with the Virgin Mary that if the child lives, her hair will not be cut until she is married. Her demonic possession, however, makes it unlikely that her hair will ever be cut. [The book's preface creates a curiosity within the reader to discover what happens to Sierva Maria.] As a result of her dog-bite/demonic possession, she is sent to a convent that is to prepare her for exorcism. Here, she falls in love with the priest who is to perform the task, and he with her. The story is touching and humorous, especially when dealing with interchurch squabbles. But the plot is somewhat incidental when compared with the magic of the words themselves. Even in translation, Marquez' writing is sublime and velvety, a treat for the sweet-tooth of the mind. It is the writing itself, rather than the action of the story, that propels the reader to the novel's conclusion. And it is only at the novel's end that the reader realizes that she/he does care about the fate of the characters; which makes the outcome moving and emotional, even for the least sentimental among us. Find out what happens to Sierva Maria and her flowing copper hair, and enjoy rich, sweet language that drips down your mind's chin like the juice of a fat ripe mango. mmm.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Enchanting 3. Mai 2000
Von Sara Saab
This is one of those books that you don't want to put down, I think most people who read it did so in one sitting. I don't really know how to describe it, there isn't some evident charm in the writing, actually it is quite direct. But while you read it you realise that it is captivating and enchanting, the words draw you in like a magic spell and you don't discover how much you like it until when you put it down for good with much sadness.
This is a story of a Columbian girl of noble backround. We learn early on that her parents are actually unworthy of their nobility, for they are emotionless and hateful, married out of obligation instead of love. And instead of seeing their daughter Sievra Maria as a token of love, they see her as the shackle that forces them together. They abandon her to be raised by slaves.On an occasion, Sievra Maria is bitten by a rabid dog, and in a desperate attempt to make up for his neglect, her father sends her off to be healed by a group of nuns. They quickly interpret her odd behavior as a sign of Satanic possesion, when in fact most of it is a result of her upbringing among slaves. Her healer, a librarian turned priest quickly falls in love with her despite the odds, and the book turns into a love story that breaks the heart.
Nice plot, nice writing, very very nice piece of literature.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mystical love 4. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Márquez is best at those moments when he writes about the intimacy between a man and a woman. Somehow he mystifies love, gives it a pagan aura, yet he does not debase it nor idealistically exalt it, nor does he place any kind of moral judgment on it. He celebrates love for the simple yet mysterious natural thing that it is. This book, like Love in the Time of Cholera, had moments of sublime literary beauty when Márquez describes the communion of two people, in this case it is all-consuming bond between the unruly Sierva Mariá, the neglected viceroy's daughter who grew up among slaves, and Father Cayetano Delaura, a bookish priest with a passion for romantic poetry. Father Delaura falls in love with Mariá, whose fiery copper hair trails past her feet, when he is assigned to oversee her exorcism, for she is thought to be possessed by the devil after being bitten by a rabid dog. Their illicit affair is doomed from the start, but with those nights of passion in Mariá's cell where she is inhumanely kept like a heretic, they manage to transcend physical as well as spiritual confinements. I like the quick pace of the book, which does not digress as in his other "love" novel, but the characters where not as fully developed.
