Armando Durán’s bold performance of this much loved novel is infused with energy and enthusiasm. His voice is clear, with just a touch of appealing huskiness, which lends an air of realism to the love story. Devotees of García Márquez should hurry to hear this version of the audiobook, for Duran’s pronunciations and his navigation of complex sentences are smooth and artful, offering lively characters and animated descriptions. It does take some concentration to get into the rhythm of the text; listeners new to García Márquez may find the pacing too slow to unfold the action. Regardless, Duran is a skilled narrator whose affection for the material seems real. L.B.F. 2014 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2013]
