The creation, development, and metamorphasis of the characters is astonishing. Isabel Allende is truly gifted in making characters come alive. That she can create credible characters that are so far afield of her own experience is an obvious indication of her talents as a writer. Age, ethnicity, culture, race, and gender offer no barrier to her ability to develope a character that the reader can see, understand, and most importantly, believe. Sra. Allende has an obvious gift for weaving the experiences and motivations of several complex characters into a single, well-woven cloth.
The tragedy of this book is that it comes to an end. The characters cease to be simply characters drawn from another's imagination; instead, they became real people who can be remembered and missed. As real people their lives would continue. But of course, a book must end, and we must simply savor the experience.
"El Plan Infinito" is well-written and entertaining. Its characters speak to something that resides in all of us. Perhaps this is the key to the popularity of Sra. Allende's books. Vicariously, through her characters, we can give vent to the unconventional urges that reside deep within our psyche.
The next book I read will be written by Isabel Allende.
The book follows Gregory and the many people whose lives become entwined with his, through high school, the Viet Nam war, social change, college and law school, disastrous marriage, a second disastrous marriage, disturbed children, and a law office that is about to go bankrupt. The book is not tightly plotted, it simply flows and develops, very much like real life. And what a cast of characters--every one of them fascinating and unforgettable.
What makes Allende's writing so remarkable is that every one of the characters--and at times there are almost too many--struggles toward the light, toward redemption, in his or her own way. And so, although these characters have terrible flaws and failings, you come to love them and wish them well. And by the end of the book, most of them--well, I won't spoil it for you. Author Isabel Allende has a unique way of creating a sense of intimate communion with her readers, so that you feel you have come to know her as well. I loved this book and I recommend it highly.

The print in the paper back version is very small. If I were to purchase this book again, I would buy the hard cover edition.
