Listener Opinions

    " Hands down my favorite short story compilation. Allende is a master storyteller who knows how to craft a plot, create a character, mesmerize the reader, and then move on to the next story after finishing the last with aplomb. Her lyrical style of writing invites both pragmatic and mystical components in at the same time, and her words are like a perfectly balanced melody. She is one of the few authors I get such a clear sense of her characters with. "

    " This book has a lot of stories of love. The most impressive one is "the Wicked Girl". It is because of the last sentence of the story, which stated that she had forgot the "love" that made her "wicked". Time is a medicine that heals the wound, clear the care, and calm down the mind. "

    " This is the first novel I ever read by Isabel Allende and I have been a fan ever since. I adore her lyrical prose, her characters come alive....It's been years since I read this novel, must re-read very soon and perhaps this time in Spanish....... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heather | 2/10/2014

    " Sometimes it is hard to get into short stories, but this book was great! But of course stories about prostitutes, theives, and sexual deviants are always exciting "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 yellowbird | 2/6/2014

    " A kind of Central/South American Arabian Nights , this book contains a lot of sexual references, and one story about a whore. Now, are you still interested? Then please read this book. It's wonderfully written, and all the characters are treated with love and respect. Yes, even the whore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cherie | 2/4/2014

    " A- The stories as told by Eva Luna to her lover Rolf Carle; fantastical stories that are just beautiful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marg | 1/31/2014

    " Short stories by one of my favorite authors. The stories all have a bit of what I call folklore magic - kind of a "Paul Bunyan" feel. While I think I like her novels better, this was a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Burnett | 1/20/2014

    " This book is in my top ten list for all time favorites. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amara | 1/2/2014

    " It's one of those books that you have to go back and read, over and over again. It was the book that ignited my love affair with Isabel Allende's romance novels.A Beautiful and smooth collection of short unconventional love stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia | 1/2/2014

    " Absolutely loved these short stories of Eva Luna, the traveling gypsy. The short story about the women with the gift of words still resonates with me today. Wonderful! "

    " Nice book of short stories. All have to do with love in one way or another. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheree | 10/23/2013

    " I worry what people think about me when I say these stories told by a harlot are heart-wrenchingly beautiful, but I say it anyways. I've read it numerous times as a guilty pleasure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amanda Schafer | 7/19/2013

    " These stories are beautifully written and often heartbreaking. Some are difficult to read because of the subject matter, but definitly worth it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 6/18/2013

    " I learned to enjoy short stories when I read this book. I love Isabel Allend's work. "

    " i read this book so long ago and barely remember it. I think I remember liking it and thinking it was easy to read and enjoyable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 5/1/2013

    " The most disappointing Allende I have read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Francesca | 2/10/2013

    " Questo libro lascia il sapore amaro di una lacrima in bocca e la sensazione di umido sulla guancia dopo che il rivolo lasciato comincia ad asciugarsi... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jose Miguel Guerrero | 1/17/2013

    " The novel was good, but in my opinion the tales are better. Allende again base her stories on real events and adds that literally view that embellishes the story or makes it bitter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Suzanne | 6/7/2012

    " This was one of my first books that I collected for the purpose of having a rich cultural selection in my personal library. Isabel speaks for her people, past and present. Each story was more profound than the one that came before it...I have worn out the spine on this one. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 4/22/2012

    " Love love love this book. All of the stories were so beautifully written. I cant figure out how she can write such wonderful stories and such awful novels! Im reading Eva Luna next and hope it is as wonderful as this! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Garcia | 3/2/2012

    " Much as I lived "Eva Luna" I enjoyed these short stories even more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vix | 10/6/2011

    " Read this book of short stories on a New Hampshire camping trip. I'm a fan of Isabel Allende but this wasn't one of my faves. Still good though. Full of the typical magical realism that permeates her work. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aya | 4/14/2011

    " Los de Eva Luna son de cualquir mujer :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 12/9/2010

    " I love Isabel Allende. I give a lot of credit to her translator, though, because it must've been a bitch to have to translate beautiful language into some semblance of grace in another. My God, what a chore. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa | 11/29/2010

    "
    This is not typical of Allende's books. She normally writes novels, but this book is a collection of very unique short stories. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mona | 11/8/2010

    " i'm loving this so far. "
