Editorial Reviews

Review

“Powerful…Sharply observant, witty, and eloquent.” (The New York Times)

“Spectacular…An absorbing and distinguished work…The House of the Spirits with its all-informing, generous, and humane sensibility, is a unique achievement, both personal witness and possible allegory of the past, present, and future of Latin America.” (Alexander Coleman New York Times Book Review)

“Both an engrossing narrative and an impassioned testimony to the people of Chile… Allende has her own distinctive voice [with] a whimsical charm…Richly and meticulously detailed.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A strong, absorbing Chilean family chronicle, plushly upholstered—with mystical undercurrents." (Kirkus Reviews)

“There are few trips more thrilling than those taken in the imagination of a brilliant novelist. That experience is available in The House of the Spirits … The characters, their joys and their anguish, could not be more contemporary or immediate.” (Cosmopolitan)

“Allende’s writing is so inventive, funny, and persuasive that in the process of creating a stimulating political novel she has also created a vivid, absorbing work of art. Her characters are fascinatingly detailed and human.” (People)

“An alluring, sometimes magical tale…In its tumultuous story of rebellion and love among three generations, it is an allegory in which any family should be able to recognize a bit of itself.” (The Wall Street Journal)

“Nothing short of astonishing… Isabel Allende has indeed shown us the relationships between past and present, family and nation, city and country, spiritual and political values. She has done so with enormous imagination, sensitivity, and compassion.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Moving and powerful…Her novel captivates and holds the reader throughout…The House of the Spirits is full of marvelous and unforgettable women who add a special dimension to the book.” (The Christian Science Monitor)

“The only cause The House of the Spirits embraces is that of humanity, and it does so with such passion, humor, and wisdom that in the end it transcends politics…The result is a novel of force and charm, spaciousness and vigor.” (Jonathan Yardley The Washington Post)

“Compelling…A splendid and fantastic meditation on a people and a nation.” (Booklist)

"Allende is a talented writer who deftly uses the techniques of magical realism but also shows great sensitivity in the delineation of character.” (Library Journal)

Isabel Allende’s extraordinary first novel, The House of the Spirits, mixes fiction, journalism, and a sense of magic in an epic that qualifies her as one of Latin America’s most inspired writers…The richness and texture alone of Allende’s book put it with the best of the sweeping family chronicles. (San Diego Tribune)

“A novelof force and charm, spaciousness and vigor.” (The Washington Post)

“Spectacular…Anabsorbing and distinguished work…A novel of peace and reconciliation...The House of the Spirits, withits all-informing, generous, and humane sensibility, is a unique achievement,both personal witness and possible allegory of the past, present, and future ofLatin America.” (The New York Times Book Review)

“Analluring, sometimes magical tale… in its tumultuous story of rebellion and loveamong three generations, it is an allegory in which any family should be ableto recognize a bit of itself.” (The Wall Street Journal)
