“Spectacular.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Nothing short of astonishing . . . In The House of the Spirits 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
“A vivid, absorbing work of art . . . [Allende’s] characters are fascinatingly detailed and human.”—People
“Extraordinary . . . powerful . . . sharply observant, witty and eloquent.”—The New York Times
“Mesmerizing . . . a novel of force and charm.”—The Washington Post

Born in Peru, Isabel Allende is Chilean. She was a journalist for many years and began to write fiction in 1981. The result was the worldwide bestseller The House of the Spirits, which was followed by the equally successful Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, The Stories of Eva Luna, and Daughter of Fortune. Long a resident of Caracas, she now makes her home in San Rafael, California.

I am no novice to the world, I am 81 years old.and have been a reader all my adult years. I enjoyed the development of the characters, Clara was other wordly and a positive force on everyone, Estaban Truba was the epitomy meaness, inflexibilty, brutality and only interested in his own views. and as usually happens, he live a long life and died in his own bed. I took not pity on his suffering, he brought it all on himself.
The characters are well configured, and the lessons thought provoking.
I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading more from this author.
