Third book I read by Isabel Allende after Zorro and the House of the Spirits and I have really loved it. Allende has outstanding story telling skills. This book is a mixture of unlikely characters and how their stories come together at different moments during the life of Eva Luna. At each moment I wanted to read on and learn what was going to happen next and whether Eva Luna would triumph over the various unfortunate episodes of her life.
I also want to note that in this kindle version there were quite a number of spelling mistakes, but that didn't prevent me from understanding the text.

Isabel Allende is an extraordinary story teller. Her narrative is enchanting and exhiliarating. Risky and brazen, Allende tackles erotica, sensuality, sexuality, gender issues, politics with honesty and great taste. Eva Luna stirs the senses and stimulates the imagination!
