CHARACTERS Inés del alma mía

Rse it s been a while since World History class OK So anyway Wikipedia helped "A Lot To Keep The "lot to keep the and places and tribes and so on straight so that I could njoy the story and actually know who was being referred to I found this story fascinating I don t really know much about Chilean history but I feel like I know uite a bit now Because I was on Wikipedia and Google so much I feel like I actually may have learned something This was a story about Spanish conuests and it was appropriately brutal There were massacres and tortures and mutilations and subjugation of the indigenous people All of that was to be xpected But there was also a
softer uality to 
uality to story a kind of mpathy and understanding that Ines lent it She claimed to not understand the indians of Chile but her description of them and their customs and ceremonies and beliefs said otherwise I thought several times while listening to this that she was confusing understanding with agreement I think she understood them just fine They wanted to live and be free and content in their lives just as she wanted to live and be free and content in her own She could have said to the Mapuches We re not so different you and I Too bad she wouldn t have gotten the Austin Powers reference sighI really appreciated the religious aspect of the story both from the Catholic standpoint and the Native standpoint Allende represented both I think Although seemed that there was a bit of the mystical on the side of the Christians at least in Ines s The Exiles Gallery eyes I love that there was a little bit of that here but also that it s interpretable Was it a miracle that broke the rope and saved the man from hanging or was it simply that the rope was frayed or weak A comet or a sign One thing I particularly loved regarding the religious aspect of the story was Ines at 70 talking about how she sometimes forgets and calls God Ngenechen which is the Mapuche s name for their god or sometimes prays to the Earth Mother rather than the Virgin It s such a throwaway reference an old woman confused and mixing things up but to me it signifies how similar beliefs can be and how silly it is to try to force a right religion on someonelse What s in a name Isn t what you believe and how you live and act important I think so and I think that Ines did too She worked for her people all her life striving to make sure that they were as well looked after as it was in her power to do She founded churches and hospitals and helped feed the poor and hungry and defended the defenseless She was definitely an awesome if underappreciated person I Dislocating China enjoyed this one and might just have to read it for myself one day I think it is a book that definitely deserves my full attention and I couldn t give it that with the audio But regardless this was very good and I d definitely recommend it While this did not live up to some of Isa. Or Spain and to found the first Spanish settlement in Santiago Here Isabelle Allende re. Bel Allende s other work in terms ofither writing style or character development the history was fascinating
it is a 
is a account of the founding of Chile told through the Childerley 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 realisticven if she does not go into the moral complexities of the conuests themselves In this way she stays true to her narrator s voice ven 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 peoples as a god given right of the Historical fiction about the life of In s Su rez Born in Spain in the arly 1500s she sails to South America with her niece to find her husband Juan de M laga who has gone in search of gold The story is told by In s near the nd of her life in the form of a diary she "plans to give to her stepdaughter Isabel The narrative covers her three romantic relationships and her participation in the xpedition "to give to her stepdaughter Isabel The narrative covers her three romantic relationships and her participation in the Cop Knowledge expedition conuer Chile Theystablish the city of Santiago and battle the native people Allende is known for her female protagonists and In s is the prototype of a strong woman She becomes self sufficient as a seamstress cook and nurse Allende Cultural Aesthetics employs magical realism here but less so than some of her previous works This novel is a sweeping saga covering approximatelyighty years In s Class and Conformity experiences many adventures hardships battles and love affairs The author does not spare the gruesome details of combat punishments andxecutionsI Descartes and His Contemporaries enjoyed this book and looked forward to picking it up It occasionally wanders from the primary storyline I was not previously aware of In s Su rez and her role in Chilean history It inspired me to do further research In s del alma m a Ines of my soul Isabel AllendeIn s of My Soul Spanish In s del alma m a 2006 is a historical novel by Chilean author Isabel Allende The novel consists of anlderly In s Su rez writing a memoir of her life She narrates about her relationship with Pedro de Valdivia and the obstacles they had to overcome to conuer Chile and found the City of Santiago The novel relates the main facts of the life of In s as written to be read by her adoptive daughter Isabel In the first chapter Europe 1500 1537 she describes her life in Plasencia mainly her married life and affair with Juan of M laga in addition to her hard trip to America motivated not only to find her husband but also to find freedom And 2008 1386 425 9789648838671 1389 21 1386 392 9789648944310 1386 437 9643513874 158. Imagines Ines's life and that of the two men who became her lover and husband respective. 35 StarsThis is my second book by Allende and I can understand why people love her writing so much She is a beautiful storyteller and her love her writing so much She is a beautiful storyteller and her is so High Tide at Midnight evocative and lovely and honest without being flowery or overdone I love that uality in a writer it s one of my favorite things about Colleen McCullough as wellspecially in Tim That book was my introduction to McCullough and it made a deep impression on me and instantly became one of my favorite books Crap Now I want to read it again Anyway I was talking about Allende The first book I read of hers was The House of the Spirits and I really njoyed "It A Lot Than I "a lot than I that I would You see I don t really care for magical realism and generally steered clear of it whenever I could I m gradually coming to the conclusion that like anything lse there s GOOD AND BAD MAGICAL REALISM AND I D ONLY and bad magical realism and I d only astoundingly bad Deceptive Beauties examples of it or read goodxamples of it and didn t recognize them as MR But it took Allende and my friend Jackie recommending her books for me to see it Allende s books are beautifully written and whatever mystical or magical or Dangerous Work ethereal otherworldliness there might be is subtle and adds a little Did you see that nudge in the ribs but doesn t overtake the story doesn t throw the narrative into confusion like some magical realism books I ve read and hated with the fires of a thousand suns I m not going to name titles You know who you are BelovedSo this was another Jackie choice and again I reallynjoyed it although I feel that this one lost something in the audio version I wish that I had read this rather than listening to it sigh Blair Brown did a passable Spanish accent but uite often it was distracting It just seemed to lack a fluidity and smoothness that native speakers have uite often she d hesitate for just a moment before pronouncing a word It might actually only be a half second but to me it was a distraction This is the kind of story that you need and want to just climb into and live for a while and Flavor and Soul every one of those stutters pulled me out of it I may not pronounce the Spanish correctly in my head but reading for myself would have been smoother since I probably wouldn t know it was wrong The second reason that I wish I d have just read the book myself was that there were a whole lot of Spanish names in this one People names place names historical names and Chilean native tribe names and honestly it was really hard to keep track of who was who when I had no visual link to the sound of the words being spoken It didn t help much that being told as a memoir type story the narrative was less than linear Wikipedia helped a lot here and Google for being a good guesser at what I was misspelling For instance I d type Atawapa and it would return Did you mean Atahualpa Yes Yes I did THANK YOU GOOGLE And before any of you break out the ladder to get on your high ho.
