    7. The book The Stories of Eva Luna by, Isabel Allende was amazing I loved how the author divided many short stories and put it all in one book These stories gave me various and mixed emotions However my favorite story Wicked Girl was in the beginning of the book This story shocked me because I never thought of any conflict in a relationship the way the author described it The conflict in this story was that a man stayed over a hotel and was sensuous with the owner The daughter of the owner, howeve [...]

    8. I adore Isabel Allende, and her beautiful mystical prose style Like a modern Scheherazade, Eva Luna tells stories that range from the tragic to the comical and encompasses the spectrum of human existence A wonderful read for anyone who enjoys the South American mystical realism genre that Allende so encompasses.

    9. Bueno, para entender un libro como eso creo que el sujeto debe tener mucha ganas de leer, por qu en su conjunto no es una historia simple Tambi n si de la escritora este libro se puede referir a uno de los m s conocidos Hay este personaje, Eva Luna, que por el relato es una persona que cuenta historias ya que en su conjunto es retorcido creo que puede funcionar m s como pensamiento unificado Que, sin embargo, es puesto en relieve por el profesionalismo colocado en la escritura Entonces el argume [...]

    11. This book is one of my top 20 novels I loved it so much that after borrowing it from the library and reading it, I sought and purchased a hard copy for my own library I read this novel before I read Eva Luna, and the reverse order did not detract from my enjoyment Sensual and mesmerizing, the narrative surrounding the story reminded me of another favorite, Tales of the 1001 Nights The stories are self contained, but like chocolate or cheese for me , you will want another and another until the bo [...]

    12. A fascinating book The author should receive the Nobel Prize in Literature for writing this marvelous book Un libro fascinante La autora deberia recibir el Premio Nobel de Literatura por escribir este libro marabilloso

    13. Oh I finished this like 6 months ago I have 0 specific memories of its contents, but I can tell you that it was alternately sexy and magical and probably had some revenge thrown in, and my associations are entirely positive.
