CHARACTERS La casa de los espíritus READ É La casa de los espíritus Isabel Allende ð 9 READ ??ambito della narrativa sudamericana soltanto Cent’anni di solitudine di García Márue. 25 stars actually Still waiting for Goodreads to give me that half star option Let s be honest Isabel Allende is chick lit that you re not embarrassed to read on the Metro It s got just enough faux Garcia Maruez magical realism lite charm to fool people into thinking it s moderately intellectual I don t have a big problem with that as long as people realize what s going on because Allende is a fine storyteller This novel her first and most famous is a fairly traditional family saga following three generations of an upper class Chilean family from the early 20th century to the Pinochet era The writing is lovely throughout with vivid descriptions particularly of places and characters physical surroundings The book s weak spot however is characterization For a genre that depends so much on having the reader care deeply about the characters Allende does a pretty poor job accomplishing that I think her main problem is that she hadn t uite yet mastered the show don t tell rule of writing Instead of revealing Esteban Trueba s stubbornness and pride through his actions she d just tell us Esteban Trueba was stubborn and proud It was mostly unconvincing and made many of the characters seem flat and two dimensional and you never really got that important sense of who they were as people Other problems Allende has always been an author who writes about strong women but the women in this book not so much I mean when one male character beats his wife until her teeth fall out her response depicted as brave by the narrator is to not talk to him for a couple years Silence is the author s idea of female empowerment and resistance huh Anyway on top of that the only sections of first person narration in the novel are from the point of view of the patriarch So yeah problematic on that level And just a nitpick but she way overuses foreshadowing Dramatically hinting at what s going to happen a few chapters on is effective once or twice but not over and over Well I realize it sounds like I hated the book but as a story it was pretty enjoyable At least the first half The second half which tracks Chilean politics and real life events through Salvador Allende s election and Pinochet s military coup is uninteresting and unsurprising to anyone who knows anything about 20th century Chilean history But the first half which is of a romantic love story is pretty good I m keeping this at 3 stars for the soft spot I have for Allende s later books which tell stories that are I think uniue and compelling PS Sorry for the long review but I spent a full month reading this book in Spanish so I feel like I ve got to get my money s worth so to speak

House of the Spirits started my love affair with Isabel Allende s writing twenty years ago I remember how the first line Barrabas came to us from the sea left me captivated and eager to read on In college I was fortunate that La Casa de los Espiritus was reuired reading for one of my classes so I read the prose a second time in Spanish Allende s writing is exceptional in both languages Recently I completed Allende s memoir The Sum of Our Days She reveals that Clara represents her own grandmother she also had the gift of being clairvoyant and communicating with all the spirits that entered her home by way of a three legged table and tarot cards Handed down this gift Allende admits that she has had a number of meaningful dreams over the years that have influenced both her writing and family lifeLa Casa de Los Espiritus is a sweeping epic that spans three generations of Chilean women Clara Blanca and Alba Del Valle Trueba from post World War I up until the Pinochet coup which overthrew the Allende government Isabel s uncle in 1973 The opus detailed their family saga in both good times and bad reflecting on how the same mistakes repeated themselves through the generations This is most evident as Allende uses the same name over again for all four women in the family Nivea Clara Blanca Alba Each woman attempted to be as independent as her era allowed yet falling for the society s expected of an upper crust Chilean family As the years pass however adhering to the higher class norms becomes harder as both family and society crumble around the Del ValleTrueba clan Allende may be known for her feminist leanings but she creates a strong memorable male lead in Esteban Trueba Reaching the ripe old age of ninety and telling this story alongside his grand daughter Alba Senator Trueba sees Chile rise fall and rise again The country s hardships and successes mirror those of his own family as the Senator remains staunchly conservative even as the younger generations of his family opt for liberal values Trueba in his role as patriarch sees how the world has changed and holds his family together as Chile crashes around them Isabel fled Chile with her family and her writing has undergone changes since depending on where she is on her life journey This saga remains my measuring stick against which all of her other books are rated As long as she maintains her high level of Latina magical realism I have no difficulties rating all of her books at least 45 stars Knowing that Daughter of Fortune and Portrait of Sepia make up a trilogy leading up to Los Espiritus whenever I reread these books every few years or so they will have to be read in succession creating an epic family saga spanning nearly 200 years House of the Spirits through its highs and lows will always keep its place as one of my favorite books read Post scriptI just re read House of the Spirits for the fourth time as part of a group read for catching up with classics in September 2016 What I can take away from this reread of Allende s contemporary classic is that her writing is as captivating as ever even twenty years later Having read her memoirs and current novel by returning to her House of the Spirits it is hard to tell if Alba Trueba is speaking or Allende herself as this book appears to be a fictionalized autobiography of her family Culling through the 90 years of Esteban Trueba s life Chile has seen her share of hardships Yet by writing down memories as both Clara and Alba do one is able to break the chain of torment so that history is no longer doomed to repeat itself As I have the other times I have read this masterpiece I rate House of the Spirits 5 shining stars for Allende s outstanding prose and magical realism

When I was a kid me and my brother used to spend most weekends at our grandparents house And most of those weekends we would watch one of the same two movies on the good ol VCR Steel Magnolias and The House of the Spirits No one seems to know the latter movie when I mention it but it starred a bunch of impressive names Meryl Streep Jeremy Irons Glenn Close Antonio Banderas and Winona Ryder My memory might be painting a better picture than the truth but me and my brother LOVED the movieSo it really kinda amazes me that it took so long for me to get my hands on the book and finally read it It s everything I can t help but love A rich family saga filled with drama hardship love violence and a touch of magical realism The characters that once fascinated me in the movie have reemerged in a far complex and fleshed out depiction It is such an interesting story spanning multiple generations and looking at the intricate relationships between the characters whilst the background features the post colonial political struggles of ChileI love the beautiful and wild South American setting I love the subtly woven aspects of magical realism I love and sometimes hate the characters I am fascinated by even the politics of the novel and the huge disparities between the women who campaigned for gender euality and those who believed a husband ruled over his wife This book has everything family politics love magic I always enjoy it when a novel can bring in many different elements that we love and get the balance rightMy favourite character has always been Ferula played by Glenn Close in the movie I find her the most tragic character and the one most buried beneath layers of complexity even though she isn t ever really the novel s main focus She was one of those people who are born for the greatness of a single love for exaggerated hatred for apocalyptic vengeance and for the most sublime forms of heroism but she was unable to shape her fate to the dimensions of her amorous vocation so it was lived out as something flat and grey that was trapped between her mother s sickroom walls wretched tenements and the tortured confessions with which this large opulent hot blooded woman made for maternity abundance action and ardor was consuming herself Ferula is my favourite but she is one in a sea of very different and interesting individuals There is of course Esteban Trueba He is violent selfish and earns very little sympathy from me over the course of the novel that s not to say he isn t of interest because he certainly is And there s his wife Clara a woman prone to bouts of clairvoyance that have dictated the direction of her life a direction she has accepted without complaint Then there s Blanca Esteban and Clara s daughter who falls in love with Pedro Tercero against her father s wishes and constantly defies him by pursuing the relationshipDespite the pretty cover this book isn t without its graphic descriptions of violence and some rape scenes It isn t a nice book but I suppose many of the best books aren t nice It is however a wonderful portrait of a family spread over several generations and it is as moving and beautiful as I d hoped Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr
