Readable and entertaining. But for the most part, it is filled with generalizations that make the narrator all-knowing and all-seing; unlikeable. The book touches many different subjects, most of which the author knows very little about, making it unrealistinc and unsatisfying. Example: one part in the book has a character arrested for practicing black magic. This character lives in LA in the late 1960/early 1970s. Ridiculous. Allendes descriptive narrative is the only thing that saves this book, as it is beautiful and elloquent. But for the most part, it is obvious that the author is in over her head - she hasnt researched the time, place, and events included in the book enough; and her characters are flat and one-dimensional. The story is filled with stereotypes and generalizations. It is entertaining in the same way that movies such as 'maid in manhattan' are entertaining. But ultimately, it is unfulfilling on a deeper level. I read the Spanish version.

The book is very readable and makes one reflect on how much our core charactor is defined by childhood experiences.

I really liked this story and i'm looking forward to reading other books written by Isabel Allende. YOu sort of feel bad for Gregory in this story but at the end you realize that his trials and tribulations were all a part of the Infinite Plan his father talked about so much.
