Inicio su carrera literaria en el periodismo, en Chile y en Venezuela. Su primera novela, "La casa de los espiritus," se convirtio en uno de los titulos miticos de la literatura latinoamericana. A ella le siguieron otros muchos, todos los cuales han sido exitos internacionales. Su obra ha sido traducida a treinta y cinco idiomas."

I decided to read the original Spanish version as the English version isn't out yet and being a big Allende fan I just couldn't wait. It is a beautifully told story set unusually for Isabel Allende in the modern era. The story starts with a young girl being sent "on the run" to a remote island off the coast of Chile called Chiloé by her grandmother having done some mysterious wrongs and the story unfolds from there. In parallel we discover Maya's current journey of self discovery and redemption in Chiloé interspersed with episodes of the events and terrible misadventures that led to this point in her life. Maya meets many characters along the way - some to love and some to fear but all colourful. The story unfolds beautifully - at times it is funny and at times it brings you to tears and at other times you want to shout with fury at our heroine when she is being foolish or blind. A wonderful story full of memorable characters and places brought vividly to life by the author.

Decidí leer la versión original en Español como la versión en Inglés aún no ha salido y no podía esperar. Es una historia muy bien contada, inusualmente para Isabel Allende ambientada en la era moderna. La historia comienza con una chica joven, Maya, que tiene que ir "on the run" a una isla remota en la costa de Chile a instancias de su abuela después de haber hecho algunos errores misteriosos y se desarrolla la historia desde ahí. Descubrimos su viaje de auto-descubrimiento y redención en Chiloé y al mismo tiempo nos cuenta los episodios terribles y desventuras que se llevo a este momento de su vida.

Todas las novelas de Isabel Allende son magnificas. Aunque en mi opinion esta no es la mejor - algunos de los episodios parecen formulaicos - todavia la narradora es un caracter muy interesante y sympatico. Me encontre totalmente absorto.

Good to get a novel in the original language. However it is a little simplistic. I wouldn't buy it in English but am desperate to find Spanish language novels on Amazon

Love this Isabel Allende novel. Different from what she's written previously but same wonderful prose and build up of narrative tension.
