    Eva Luna , by Isabel Allende was first written in 1987 translated from Spanish to English I ve read most books of her books but never read this one..which is now available as a Kindle download for 2.99Eva, a storyteller much like Isabel Allende, and revolutionary , begins this story narrating in first person She describes her mother, Consuelo

    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 advent

    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 gather

    It is hard for me to recapture the innocence I once had with books, where the words were so real it was like being in a super reality Age, a better understanding of the world, and my new education to psychotherapy has made literatureunderstandable and a little less mystical But Allende gets me pretty close The psychological lense of me understands Eva Luna s storytelling as therapeuti

    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 socie

    Having previously read The House of the Spirits , Of Love and Shadows, Daughter of Fortune and Zorro , I can t deny having certain expectations when it came to this author Did I expect to like this book based solely on the fact I enjoy her writing I must admit that I did Did I end up liking it Very much so, thanks for asking At this point, I think I can say that I m not only familiar with this wr
