Isabel Allende always revives one’s faith in the intoxicating power of sheer old-fashioned storytelling. What is most admirable about this collection is Allende’s ability to portray a world in which the ordinary and the miraculous, the natural and the supernatural, the political and the particular not only co-exist but actually affect one another. Jane Urquhart, Quill & Quire. They partake of the literary and psychic disjunction of a whole generation of Chilean and Latin American exiles. Alexander Coleman, Latin American Literature and Arts.

Isabel Allende (Author), Margaret Sayers Peden (Translator). Some of the included short stories assume the reader has previously read Eva Luna, or they lose impact. Other stories seem to stand alone and do not rely on the preceding book. I preferred these standalone stories and feel the sequencing of the stories could have flowed better thematically.
It consists of stories told by the title character of Allende's earlier novel Eva Luna.

Isabel Allende (Goodreads Author), Margaret Sayers Peden (Translator) . As Eva tells her story, Isabel Allende conjures up a whole complex South American nation-the rich, the poor, the simple, and the sophisticated-in a novel replete with character and incident, with drama and comedy and history, with battles and passions, rebellions and reunions, a novel that celebrates the power of imagination to create a better world. The first book I’ve read by Isabel Allende, and she reminds me of Neil Gaiman: mesmerising popular storytelling at its best.
Eva Luna is a novel written by Chilean novelist Isabel Allende in 1985 and translated from Spanish to English by Margaret Sayers Peden. Eva Luna takes us into the life of the eponymous protagonist, an orphan who grows up in an unidentified country in South America. While the country's political history, traced through several decades of the mid-20th century, bears many similarities to Chile (the author's original nationality), the geography and social context of the story depict a society more similar to Venezuela (where she was exiled for over a decade).

Isabel Allende, Margaret Sayers Peden. My name is Eva, which means "life", according to a book of names my mother consulted. I was born in the back room of a shadowy house, and grew up amidst ancient furniture, books in Latin, and human mummies, but none of those things made me melancholy, because I came into the world with a breath of the jungle in my memory. Isabel Allende tells the sweet and sinister story of an orphan who beguiles the world with her astonishing visions, triumphing over the worst of adversity and bringing light to a dark place.
