Wow, the only thing I can say is that this novel is beautiful. Allende plays with the characters of the Trueba family, in which consist of a very sexist family and women who can talk with dead people and all that stuff. She explains a great part of the history of her native Chile with the magic she posses in her words. It is too similar to "One-Hundred Years of Solitude" ("100 Años de Soledad"), which IS a better novel, but still interesting(La Casa de los Espiritus). The only problem I find with Allende's writting is that every novel looks like another famous one (just like Afrodita which is compared to a book written by the same author of "Like water for chocolate"). Although she has lack of creativity in her writings (or lack in innovative styles) she deserves to be in the list of best selling authors. She's got it all. She is a profesional.
