  2. Earlier this year, my friend Nina and I were discussing internationally written literature, specifically from Latin America We both had a connection to it for a few reasons, which prompted her to suggest a buddy read We settled on Isabel Allende, and she selected Eva Luna We spent the last week reading the book and discussing some of the key points and will continue to do so, I m sure For now, I m sharing...

  3. Perhaps it is merely a reflection of my feebleness as a reader that I assume the basic conceit of any first person novel is for the author to be the narrator,or less In my defense, this book is dedicated to Allende s mother And the story itself is about a girl who loses her mother and loves her mother deeply and has all kinds of wooooonderful adventures, only to discover writing and have evenmaaaaaaagical adventures, and become highly successful, and be pursued by a general and als Perhaps it is merely a reflection of my feebleness as a reader that I assume the basic conceit of any first person novel is for the author to be the narrator,or le...

  4. I found that reading this book was a bit like attending a storytellers cocktail party, at which the hostess the author has got drunk and decided to rapidly parade every unusual and eccentric character she could possibly imagine before the gathering, in order to impress her friends.A host of unusual tales tumble out of this book, like so many magpie gathered jewels that had been crammed into a box Eva Luna hits us with one bizzare scenario after another, in rapid succession Whilst an amazing I found that reading this book was a bit like attending a storyteller...

  9. For some reason, this is one of my all time favorite books I think I was deeply moved and inspired by the novel because of the formative time period in my life when I read it For me, it s about a woman who has had a difficult early life and who develops resilience and forbearance in the face of adversity The entire novel for me is about the journey not just of herself but of an entire society that learns to adapt and transform reality in order not to dwell in suffering but to live a life of a For some reason, this is one of my all time favorite books I think I was deeply moved and inspired by the novel because of the formative time period in my life when I read it For me, it s about a woman who has had a difficult early life and who develops resilience and forbearance in the face of adversity The entire novel for me is about the journey not just of herself but of an entire society that learns to adapt and transform reality in order not to dwell in suffering but to live a life of appreciation and joy One aspect of the book I particularly liked is how Eva Luna comes to accept herself as a woman in ways that seem so natural and practical For example, a passage in the novel reads, As I approached my seventeenth year, I grew to my full height and my face became the face I have today I stopped examining myself in the mirror to compare myself to the perfect beauties of movies and magazines I decided I was beautiful for the simple reason that I wanted to be In our ...

  10. Eva Luna has a gift The child growing up in an unnamed South American country is blessed with the ability to weave compelling tales which enchant her audience children and adults alike It provides her with a way to survive in an extremely tough world She is born into the underclass and jobs are brutish, insecure and poorly paid People close to her die or get sick on a regular basis.Cue a fascinating journey involving amongs...
