      A very In s kind of review I have been a reader for the last eleven years and am now the loyal fan of Isabel Allende, writing this review ofIn s of My Soulin the year of Our Lord 2012.I am not sure whether this review will convince anyone to read this book but I am sure this is one of the best historical novels ever written and Isabel Allende is, undoubtedly, the only writer who hovers between a historian, a storyteller and a feminist.As a result this book isn t limited to a single genre It is a [...]

      While this did not live up to some of Isabel Allende s other work in terms of either writing style or character development, the history was fascinating It is a fictionalized account of the founding of Chile, told through the eyes of the mother of the country, the leading conquistador s mistress The book is written to be her memoirs, so there are rather annoying interludes in which the narrator is in her present day, talking about how she must finish the story before she dies, blah blah blah, an [...]

      This was a very well written book, and the voice of the narrator main character was very strong There were a few parts when it got a little slow, but would quickly pick back up and resume the epic, dramatic, and violent storyline I already have a few other books by Allende picked out to read someday, and look forward to them.

      3.5 StarsThis is my second book by Allende, and I can understand why people love her writing so much She is a beautiful storyteller and her writing is so evocative and lovely and honest without being flowery or overdone I love that quality in a writer it s one of my favorite things about Colleen McCullough as well, especially in Tim That book was my introduction to McCullough and it made a deep impression on me and instantly became one of my favorite books Crap Now I want to read it again Anyway [...]

      Que libro tan maravilloso, que manera tan hermosa de narrar una historia de amor envuelta en guerra y sangre, Isabel Allende me gusta much simo y este es sin duda mi libro favorito de la escritora seguido muy muy de cerca por la islajo delr.Si bien este libro es en esencia una historia de a amor, nos muestra sin ning n tapujo lo sangrienta que fue la conquista por parte de los espa oles en el Per y Chile y muy sabiamente nos hace pensar si hab a derecho para eso, por que grandes culturas ten an [...]

      Faz me feliz quando se faz jus s mulheres de condi o simples e humildes que se tornaram grandes como o caso desta In s Suarez Mulheres que na sua esmagadora maioria foram negligenciadas, espezinhadas durante s culos, diminu das, injusti adas, desvalorizadas e que apesar de tudo isso, contra tudo e contra todos, se sobrep em em prol de uma causa e se agigantam Tal como esta maravilhosa personagem, mulher de fibra que se veio a revelar uma das conquistadoras do Chile, uma hero na com uma hist ria [...]

      I am a huge fan of historical novels well done I also love to learn about areas and societies of which I know little or nothing This book fills both bills Ines Suarez was a remarkable Spanish lady who traveled to the New World in the 1530s and helped to settle Peru and Chili The only name I recognized from history class was that of Pizzaro, so you can imagine that this was a wholly new adventure for me.Allende impresses me by her very even handed handling of the native Indians who already popula [...]

      In s Su rez is a heroine that will stick with me for a long time At the book s opening, she estimates she s about seventy years old and is going to soon die In the rambling way of someone working through their memories, distracted at times by side stories and the need to unburden her soul, In s story unfolds Born to an ordinary Spanish family, she and her childhood lover are caught up in the adventures of the Americas and the untold riches any man can claim She goes to join him after he leaves a [...]

      Quickly summed up, Isabel Allende s novel Ines of My Soul, is a true account about Dona Ines Saurez who left Spain in the 1500 s to go to the Americas and ended up helping conquering parts of Chile I find it sad that it took over 400 years for her part in history to be recognized.I have never read a book by Isabel Allende This was recommended to me by a friend So I cannot compare this to any of her other works.I do not know much about Chilean or Peruvian history, so I found this novel to be some [...]

      Maybe 3.5 stars My first book by this author Some of this read like non fiction but definitely a fictionalized story of the Spanish foray into South America focusing on the conquest of what would become known as Chile and the establishment of the city of Santiago It is narrated by the 70 y o Ines Suarez as she relates this history 1500 1553 to her daughter Isabel as she intuits her impending death I fear these pages already contain cruelty that a Christian soul can tolerate It was a bloody slog [...]
