An in-depth expoloration of the life and death of Eva Peron; however, the author assumes that the reader is as familiar with all the characters as she is, so that it is sometimes not easy to follow the anecdotes, eg, they may be mentioned by first name and surname first, then by first name only, then by a nickname.
The author tries hard to be objective, but cannot prevent sentimentality from creeping in; this distracts the reader from the facts in places.

I have to say i really enjoyed this book, the translation is a bit dogey, but i honestly dont think it affects the book that much, as i said, once i started reading this book i just couldnt stop it is utterly enthralling! It is a very interesting book about a very interesting person! The book is best in the respect that instead of taking just one of the versions of her life it explores a few along side each other. An excelent read!

I enjoyed this book despite its flaws. Having read The Woman with the Whip some years ago I wanted a more satisfactory biography of Evita and saw that this was described as ‘definitive’. That is not quite true but reading other reviews does seem to suggest that this is perhaps the best bet overall for a balanced insightful account and it is certainly very readable and entertaining. It does suffer, however, from a tendency to pretentiousness and speculation and at times the exact sense is obscure and even meaningless. Possibly this is the result of translation but I suspect that the original (French I believe, though some say Spanish) was exactly the same. French writers can be like that! Certainly there are, as another reviewer notes, times where claims are made about events or thoughts where it seems impossible for the author to know whether what is being asserted is true. There is a fictionalised feeling at times. The overall effect is to create a book that is full of anecdotes and dramatic scenes but lacks real detail about the government of Peron and its power base and Eva’s relations with other party leaders. The discussion of the Nazi links (fugitives, treasure, secret bank accounts) is, I thought, confusing rather than enlightening – there is too much hinting and suggesting, too little clarity (a fault throughout the book). A genuine attempt is made to give a balanced treatment and there is neither idolisation nor defamation but I would have liked an objective final assessment of her character and impact, less mystical and generalised than what we are actually offered.
