review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ Isabel Allende

Esto inspira a Valdivia aun mas ya ue lo ue busca es el honor y la gloria Juntos los dos amantes fundaran la ciudad de Santiago y libraran una guerra sangrienta contra los indigenas chilenos en una lucha ue cambiara sus vidas para siempre Basada en una investigacion meticulosa y contada con la pasion y el extraordinario talento narrativo de Isabel Allende Ines del Alma Mia es una obra de impresionante magnitud While this did not live up to some of Isabel Allende s other work in terms of either writing style or character development the history was fascinating It is a fictionalized account of the founding of Chile told through the eyes of the mother of the country the leading conuistador s mistress The book is written to be her memoirs so there are rather annoying interludes in which the narrator is in her present day talking about how she must finish the story before she dies blah blah blah and her comments about the other characters personalities are also rather banal However the story is fascinating and Allende did a great deal of background research that makes the setting realistic even if she does not go into the moral complexities of the conuests themselves In this way she stays true to her narrator s voice even if that is somewhat simplistic for modern readers who may not see the conuest and butchering of native peoples as a god given right of the Spaniards
