Summary

Un libro lleno de amor y de humor que reconstruye, desde la evocación, la vida, la felicidad añorada y los espacios más queridos de Isabel Allende.

Amor por Chile y una gran nostalgia son el origen de este libro: la presencia continuada del pasado, el sentimiento de verse ausente de la patria, la conciencia de haber sido peregrina y forastera... todo ello lo transmite Isabel Allende con inteligencia y humor.

Aquí Chile deviene un país real y fantástico a la vez; una tierra estoica y hospitalaria, de hombres machistas y mujeres fuertes y apegadas a la tierra. Pero, sobre todo, es el escenario de su niñez. Evocados con gracia, cobran vida de nuevo su original familia, la casa de los abuelos, el ceremonial de las comidas, las historias de infidelidades... y los espíritus que siempre la han acompañado.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Critic reviews

"Un libro que capta mi entera atención al exponer la relación de la autora con ese país suyo, inventado, imaginario, ficcional, con la historia de su familia, que a su vez es memoria inventada, con su vocación de escritora." (Jorge Edwards)

Nostalgia

Cualquier latinoamericano que esté fuera de su patria, sentirá como suyos uno que otro de los sentimientos de nostalgia expresados en este relato. Vivencias en Chile, idiosincracia latinoamericana. Encantador.

Enjoyable

Quite entertaining yet it would had been amazing to have it read by the author. The voice talent is rather dull for such a intimate text.

No story, just rambling

Isabel Allende is my favorite writer of all time. But this book is a disappointment. She just rambles about various aspects of Chile as she remembers it.
