Publisher's Summary

En Eva Luna, su tercera novela, Isabel Allende recupera su país a través de la memoria y la imaginación. La cautivadora protagonista de esta historia constituye un nostálgico álter ego de la autora, que se llama a sí misma «ladrona de historias» precisamente porque en las historias radica el secreto de la vida y el mundo.Novela de hondo perfil humano, Eva Luna funde el destino individual con el colectivo mediante una fulgurante prosa de carácter épico. Sin duda, una de las mejores obras de la literatura latinoamericana de los últimos años.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Critic Reviews

"Cuando Isabel Allende puso el punto final de Eva Luna, logró tatuarse un símbolo que honra su epidermis: dejó de ser chilena, peruana o venezolana, y pasó a ser intensamente latinoamericana." (Luis Sepúlveda)

Una novela comercial

Esta es una novela comercial que garantiza al oyente una narración entretenida. El final me quedó con un cierto sin sabor.

I love Allende, but not this time

Isabel Allende has given me great gifts with her novels, but not with Eva Luna. The storyline is confusing and shallow.
It was hard to listen until the end.

Rica y truculenta obra

Encantadora historia que se revuelve sobre si misma y cuenta muchas de las alegrias y pesares de Sudamerica. Pintoresca e imaginativa, llena de detalles cotidianos, que van desde la magia hasta la violencia como si se tratase de lo mas habitual.

It's in SPANISH!

Please, pay attention before buying this audio book. It's in Spanish. Waste of money if you don't know the language.

This isn't English, I wasted my money.

What disappointed you about Eva Luna?

I bought this assuming it was English and it is not. I am upset that I paid so much money for this. I guess I should have looked more carefully. What a waste of money.

Get immersed into the story

What does Juanita Devis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The narration makes you feel as if you were experiencing the story and brings vivid images of what is taking place! I usually prefer to read, but this was the first audio book that I could not stop listening to. I also found it useful to use clips of it in my Spanish classes - it's turning out to be a great teaching tool.
