    Para aquellos que llegamos como extranjeros y que hemos dejado nuestros países de origen, este libro revive los sentimientos de nostalgia, añoranza y en algunos casos tristeza, pero con un cierto sabor de 'alivio'. Después de haber devorado este libro, los demás títulos de Allende tienen más sentido, e incluso invitan a volver a leerlos teniendo este antecedente de 'quién, porqué y cuándo' de cada uno.

    I could relate

    Being a Chilean immigrant woman in Canada, I could completely relate to Isabel Allende's vivid descriptions of everything Chilean in her book, and how it feels to live away from your country. I could not help but smile everytime I recognized myself in those pages, and also the invented country that lives in my own heart. It is very enjoyable read whether you are Chilean or not.

    L. a reader

    I bought this book before boarding a four hours flight. I finished it before landing. Maybe I went too fast but it was so good. Really good! I read it in spanish... I don't know the translation would be...Characterizes chileans in a great way and tries to take a centered stand on her country's recent political turmoil
