    Earlier this year, my friend Nina and I were discussing internationally written literature, specifically from Latin America We both had a connection to it for a few reasons, which prompted her to suggest a buddy read We settled on Isabel Allende, and she selected Eva Luna We spent the last week reading the book and discussing some of the key points

    Perhaps it is merely a reflection of my feebleness as a reader that I assume the basic conceit of any first person novel is for the author to be the narrator,or less In my defense, this book is dedicated to Allende s mother And the story itself is about a girl who loses her mother and loves her mother deeply and has all kinds of wooooonderful adventures,

    I found that reading this book was a bit like attending a storytellers cocktail party, at which the hostess the author has got drunk and decided to rapidly parade every unusual and eccentric character she could possibly imagine before the gathering, in order to impress her friends A host of unusual tales tumble out of this book, like so many magpie gathered jew

    The first book I ve read by Isabel Allende, and she reminds me of Neil Gaiman mesmerising popular storytelling at its best Eva Luna is a novel from the 1980s, and as such its use of stereotypes sometimes falls below standards now expected in the literary world, but the characters were so grand and involving that they often feltlike archetype than stereotype The unnamed fictional

    For some reason, this is one of my all time favorite books I think I was deeply moved and inspired by the novel because of the formative time period in my life when I read it For me, it s about a woman who has had a difficult early life and who develops resilience and forbearance in the face of adversity The entire novel for me is about the journey not just of herself but of an entire

    The Good The characters are all amazing mythical figures inhabiting an unnamed part of Latin America some time in the middle of the 20th century The setting is vivid, and the series of vignettes through the first half of the book read like fairy tales It s also pretty funny.The Bad The sense of magic really died away in the second half It became a fairly shallow political story full of neat

    Eva Luna has a gift The child growing up in an unnamed South American country is blessed with the ability to weave compelling tales which enchant her audience children and adults alike It provides her with a way to survive in an extremely tough world She is born into the underclass and jobs are brutish, insecure and poorly paid People close to her die or get sick on a regular basis.Cue a fascinat
