Review

"Seductor, ricamente sensual,y descaradamente romantico...sazando con un lenguaje elegante y un magnetismo de cuentista nata." -- Chicago Sun TImes

Allende emplea las ténicas del realismo magico latinoamericano para crear un mundo vivaz, lleno de humor, pasión, tragedia y color. -- Library Journal

More About the Author

Born in Peru and raised in Chile, Isabel Allende is the author of eight novels, including, most recently, Zorro, Portrait in Sepia, and Daughter of Fortune. She has also written a collection of stories; three memoirs, including My Invented Country and Paula; and a trilogy of children's novels. Her books have been translated into more than twenty-seven languages and have become bestsellers across four continents. In 2004 she was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Isabel Allende lives in California.

My thoughts on Kindle en Español:

"El impacto de los libros electrónicos es formidable y está remeciendo a la industria del libro tanto como a los lectores. Aunque todavía la idea es relativamente nueva en español, ya se ha extendido en otras lenguas tan dramáticamente, que muchos autores nuevos publican en versión digital, saltándose a las editoriales. Confieso que soy adicta a mis Kindle y mi IPad, donde leo con letra grande y clara, en una pantalla liviana. Antes viajaba con una maleta de libros, ahora llevo mi biblioteca en la cartera y puedo adquirir nuevos libros en cualquier parte del mundo en pocos segundos. Dicen que los jóvenes le tienen miedo al papel y no tienen el hábito de leer - lo cual no es totalmente cierto - pero ahora pueden leer en sus pantallas. También dicen que la ficción desaparecerá, pero eso jamás ocurrirá, porque la humanidad necesita historias tanto como necesita oxígeno. Tal vez en el futuro el libro, ese compañero maravilloso, será un objeto de coleccionistas y de bibliotecas y nosotros, simples mortales, leeremos en pantallas. Pero seguiremos leyendo, de eso no tengo dudas." Isabel Allende

HE LEIDO MUCHOS LIBROS EN MI VIDA PERO NINGUNO COMO ESTE EN EL QUE PUEDES ENCONTRAR Y MEZCLAR PAZ Y REVOLUCION,DICTADURIA Y ESPERANZA A UNA DEMOCRACIA,AMOR Y SUENOS,EVA LUNA NO ES SOLO UNA MUJER QUE NARRA CUENTOS ES UNA MUJER QUE VIVE Y SIENTE CADA UNA DE LAS HISTORIAS QUE SU MENTE REGALA A TODOS LOS QUE LAS QUIERAN ESCUCHAR. EN LO PERSONAL CONSIDERO AL LIBRO LLENO DE RIQUEZAS,SABIDURIA,SORPRENDENTEMENTE HUMANO SIMPLEMENTE UNO DE LOS MEJORES LIBROS DE ISABEL ALLENDE.

What a collection of characters! An illiterate woman who sells words. A man obsessed with a little girl. A woman whose marriage was based on letters written by the wrong man. A woman who spends her life waiting for revenge. A rich man who keeps a girl prisoner. Rascals trying to break into society. A lonely dictator. Invisible Indians. Every character is flawed in some terrible way, and yet, somehow appealing. Somehow you become attached to each of the characters and you want to hear their stories. There is something absolutely magical about these stories by Isabel Allende, stories you can't put down.

What is her secret? I don't know. I think she writes with magic ink. But, there is something else, too. Her characters never give up. No matter how bad, how flawed, how actually depraved they may be, they keep struggling toward the light. And so, each of us, with our own struggle to escape from darkness, can relate to these people and their stories.

These are some of the finest stories I have ever read. I recommend the collection most highly. Reviewed by Louis N. Gruber.

Format: Paperback
The stories fo Eva Luna is an exciting short story book written by Isabel Allende. This book contains various short stories about love, adventure, and mystery. Allende has a great way with words. She makes you want to open the book and never stop reading. I definitely recommend this novel to everyone. Her captivating work becomes interesting to the reader because she writes about her deepest and darkest secrets. These stories are about peasants and particians, revolutionairies and tyrants, seductress and fortune tellers.

La cuentista mas elocuente de America se luce una vez mas con este libro - cuentos magicos y sensuales. Historias maravillosas - escritas de tal manera que te envuelven, elevan y transportan a otro tiempo. Lectura requerida para todas las mujeres que como la escritora aceptamos, asumimos y disfrutamos plenamente nuestra condicion de mujer.

After 10 years of not reading a book in Spanish, this one was the first one tackled. Inside I found stories which moves the heart and the incidents are intewoven in the most fascinating ways. Cheers !

Format: Paperback
'Tell me a story no one has heard before !' Eva Luna's lover tells her, and Isabel Allende weaves for us on behalf of Eva Luna, a set of two dozen magical stories which bring out the pathos, love, joy and misery of life in Latin America. Nearly all the stories have a magical quality, but some of them are simply enchanting. 'Two Words', the story of Belissa Crepsculario, who makes a living by selling words is one such piece. I was fascinated by the power of Allende's language and her ability to craft her narrative to perfection. The last story of the book about a TV cameraman's inability to save a young girl stuck in an avalanche is a masterpiece in its own right. There are a number of dictators and tyrants in the book and Allende manages to assign a touch of vulnerability to each of these oppressors. Easily one of the best books from Latin America in the recent past,I would strongly recommend it to anyone willing to get addicted to the joy of storytelling or reading.

This book is up to Allende's usual standards. i would however advise that you read "Eva Luna" first so you can truly appreciate it.

The "Stories of Eva Luna" is a wonderful book, much better than "Eva Luna", it's predecessor. This book is about the different stories that Eva Luna tells her lover. There is no need to read Eva Luna,though it is helpful because both combined complete a fantastic tale.
