“The House of the Spirits takes a lot of patience, but that doesn't mean it's not fantastic. No matter how fast you read it, it takes a while to get through because there is so much to it. I love this world, which could probably be just about any South American country during the 20th Century, in which a little bit of magic is not magic at all, just an accepted part of everyday life. If you like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Allende's style is very similar.”
