The Sum of Our Days, in my opinion, is the best and most enjoyable of all Allende's books thus far. It reads like the best of novels. The characters, Isabel's vast "tribe" of family, friends, and interesting acquaintances have left me loving them and wanting the best for their lives. The settings range from everything California to India, the Amazon, and, of course, Chile. The language is genius--delighting my senses and touching my heart. When she addresses the second person, I am understanding and mourn deeply as she tells her Paula, "you," about the varied lives of the tribe. Our politics differ as Allende is always frank about her liberal leanings. However, as one of her most ardent readers and fans who has bought every book she's written except the juvenile ones because I am a barren grandmother, I put this memoir at the top of my all-time favorite books. May January 8 always bring more great stories. My mind, heart, and love of great literature are in her tribe of grateful readers.

Every one should have at least one Allende book in there home. She is a Latina novelist, storyteller, and enchanter. I just want to meet this woman and join her tribe. She is truly a master at what she does and I am proud to have her in my library.

I have read a number of Isabelle Allende's books and this one made me feel she was speaking personally to me about her life. I truly enjoyed reading it.

This book is all about the love of family, friends and the everlasting pain of having lost a child. The book was absorbing, all the love the family share with each other and with friends, the background of each character is enlightening. I recommend this book.

As usual the author balances sadness with hope. I felt like I was sitting in a room listening to an old friend tell me what I had missed in her life over the past years.

I like Isabel Allende so of course I enjoyed reading this autobiographical journal. It does give you a sense of the woman and how her days go.
