I did not finish this book I didn't think it was one of the worst books for me but it was simply not destined to entertain me There was some potential in it But it was disjointed I tried further than I should've because it's a rec and I've already got 3 likes from it but when a book is spurned in favor of David Copperfield that tells the whole story Another thing that made me try harder than usual is the cover It's so wonderful But the book not for me


La saga familiar de los Trueba desde los de los MOBI #183 principios de siglo hasta nuestra época Magistralment. 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
