Om författaren

Isabel Allende was born in 1942 in Lima, Peru, the daughter of a Chilean diplomat. When her parents separated, young Isabel moved with her mother to Chile, where she spent the rest of her childhood. She married at the age of 19 and had two children, Paula and Nicolas. Her uncle was Salvador visa mer Allende, the president of Chile. When he was overthrown in the coup of 1973, she fled Chile, moving to Caracas, Venezuela. While living in Venezuela, Allende began writing her novels, many of them exploring the close family bonds between women. Her first novel, The House of the Spirits, has been translated into 27 languages, and was later made into a film. She then wrote Of Love and Shadows, Eva Luna, and The Stories of Eva Luna, all set in Latin America. The Infinite Plan was her first novel to take place in the United States. She explores the issues of human rights and the plight of immigrants and refugees in her novel, In The Midst of Winter. In Paula, Allende wrote her memoirs in connection with her daughter's illness and death. She delved into the erotic connections between food and love in Aphrodite: A Memoir of the Senses. In addition to writing books, Allende has worked as a TV interviewer, magazine writer, school administrator, and a secretary at a U.N. office in Chile. She received the 1996 Harold Washington Literacy Award. She lives in California. Her title Maya's Notebook made The New York Times Best Seller List in 2013. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

En mäktig släktkrönika som berättar Chiles historia. Det finns många bottnar i denna bok och det är mästerligt berättat.

Våldets Chile under diktaturtiden. En stark berättelse om vanliga människors kamp mot diktatur och orättvisor. Att den vad jag förstår också bygger på verkliga händelser gör den inte mindre stark. Klart läsvärd.

Jag tyckte mycket om den. En bok om slaveri och frihet, om Haitis födelse ur våld och förnedring, och, förstås, om kärlek. Fint berättad med säker hand, många utvikningar men ändå med en sorts trygghet i berättandet som imponerar. Några gånger svajade väl trovärdigheten, och vissa av personerna blev kanske lite för endimensionella (särskilt då de "goda"). Men, å andra sidan var det ofta tvärt om, att människor tecknades ganska komplext, och då särskilt de "onda", där hon bemödade sig om att inte hemfalla åt förenklingar.

Kort sagt en mycket trevlig bok att läsa, och jag fick en liten inblick i ett historiskt och geografiskt skeende som jag inte visste mycket om. Men varför byta namn på den? En rak översättning av titeln: "ön under havet" hade ju varit mycket vackrare!
