This book has everything. It will make you cry. And laugh. And roll your eyes. But most of all, it is a spellbinding and magical story written in prose that is almost poetical in its beauty and flow. Isabel Allende is a genius.
I was optimistic that "Eva Luna" would be just as riveting and enjoyable to read but I was disappointed. "Eva Luna" explored EVERY character's back story & side stories in such great detail that it detracted from the flow of Eva's story. There was so much extraneous information that instead of being eager to turn the page, I began checking to see how much longer until I reached the end of the book.
"Eva Luna" was an adequate read but in no way does it live up to the standard that the author created with "Daughter of Fortune".
I was most impressed with her descriptions of living conditions of the different locations and the different people in the story. Very well written. I would recommend it for anyone who likes a good story with quality writing.
Es un libro que nos deja un gran mensaje y muchas de las situaciones políticas, lamentablemente se siguen viviendo en la actualidad.
