Isabel Allende is an informative introduction to the distinguished author. Isabel Allende, one of the world's most widely read Latin American writers, is a Chilean novelest who, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, was strongly influenced by her grandparents. Her vivid fiction, such as The House of the Spirits, blends realism with magical elements and spotlights political and often feminist concerns.
Here is a wonderful introduction to Isabel Allende that will help students understand how her family and upbringing set the stage for her life's work and success. The book is published by Chelsea House Publishers, a leading publisher of educational material.
Would you try another book from Tim McNeese and/or Roxanne Hernandez?
Has Isabel Allende turned you off from other books in this genre?
How could the performance have been better?
The reader didn't have a lot to work with, to be fair.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
It was short
Any additional comments?
I accidentally bought this book trying to purchase House of the Spirits (now why isn't that available on audible?). It's absolute drivel. It sounds like the author skimmed a Wikipedia page, then fabricated some emotions onto Allende and called it done.
It was very interesting to learn more about Isabel Allende's life and some of the stories behind some of her books!
