La narrativa de Isabel Allende es de mis preferidas. Me gusta su tono simpático, sus palabras simples, ése llamar a las cosas por su nombre. En la Historia de Clara, tan singular, disfruté mucho su estilo, sus descripciones y diálogos, sus "fantasmas".

This is one of my all time favourite books. Love Love Love Love Love it!

It is one of the only books that I have re-read repeatedly. I was totally hooked from the very first sentence. The language is stunning and the story appealed to my interests in history and politics.

I fell in love with the characters. It is written in a style that was neither too fluffy, nor too scholarly and impenetrable. The first time I read it I literally could not put it down. I think I read right through the night.

This book ticked every box for me.
