    Interesante

    Una historia muy interesante. La casa de los espiritus cuenta la historia de tres generaciones de una familia muy rara pero fascinante. Una increible versión de realismo máagico. Aunque utiliza un lenguage un tanto violento para describir unos impacatantes escenarios, La casa de los espiritus de verdad vale la pena.

    Isabel Allende..magnifica!!!

    He leido varios libros de Isabel Allende todos son magnificos aunque debo admitir que 'La Casa de los Espiritus' me impacto. El estilo de narrativa que posee Isabel es magico, sorprendente, es una viaje virtual hacia el pasado, los personajes emanados de su imaginacion cobran vida en la mente del lector. Isabel nacio para escribir. Sus obras, especialmente esta asi lo afirman. Isabel ha conquistado su lugar junto a las mejores plumas de Latinoamerica, especialmente las de Gabriela Mistral y Pablo Neruda tambien oriundos de su querido Chile.

    maravillosa

    Me gustaria tanto conocerte, tu padre una vez dijo 'algun dia se abriran las alamedas por donde pase el hombre nuevo' Tu eres la imagen de ese Chile que trato de realizar vuestro padre, tu eres esa imagen del hombre nuevo por la cual tu padre dio su vida... Soy Cubano,escribo algo de poesia y te amo... Tengo amigos en Chile los cuales conoci en Cuba pero nunca mas me he podido comunicar con ellos desde que llege a Estados Unidos pero amo a Chile... Creo que al perder a tu padre perdimos un bastion de libertad,pero doy gracias a Dios por habernos dado el maravilloso regalo de tu prosa y tu escritura Gracias Isabel!

    Me gusta mucho como escribe Isabel Allende y me da muchisimo gusto que haya hispanos con mucho talento como ella y espero que sea el ejemplo para muchos de nosotros. Isabel Allende escribe las novelas con mucho sentimiento, dolor y sobre todo inmaginacion eso hace seguir leyendo el libro sin poder detenerse y querer terminar de leerlo en ese mismo dia. Le deseo que siga escribiendo muchos libros y que siga teniendo el mismo exito de siempre. A todos los lectores les recomiendo que compren todos los libros de Isabel allende porque valen la pena yo lo digo porque anteriormente a mi no me gustaba leer libros pero ahora estoy facinada y seguire leyendo mas.

    ES FANTASTICO!!!

    Esta historia esta hecha con el amor e imaginacion de una mujer que sabe combinar lo magico con lo real para ganar el carino de sus lectores. Esta historia es tan seductora que es imposible parar de leerla, y una vez terminada, uno espera la continuacion. No se la pueden perder!!!!

    A great novel for anyone

    Isabel shows her ability and crismatic behavior in this novel. She manages to yet again captivate the mind and soul of many people. Isabel turns the impossible to the possible as she opens a new form of fiction into the word or literature. Reality is harsh however she emphaises on what she believes to have an effect on people.

    EL MUNDO FANTASTICO O REAL?

    En esta nobela Isabel Allende une lo magico con el realismo y envuelve al lector en un mundo dificir de escapar. La persona que lea esta historia sin analisarla, no sabra apreciar que tan cerca esta el mundo magico de la realidad. Como siempre Isabel logra unir la literatura con las emociones ya que al terminar la novela una no esta seguro si una invadio el mundo de Isabel, o si Isabel invadio el mundo de una.
