"A remarkable novel, one in which a cascade of stories tumbles out before the reader, stories vivid and passionate and human...Reading this novel is like asking your favorite storyteller to tell you a story and getting a hundred stories!"--Alan Ryan "The Washington Post "
"Wonderful, crammed with the strange and fantastical, the sensuous and the erotic.... Isabel Allende's singular, powerful voice already has been established. "--Publisher's Weekly
"Here is a finely-woven tale that combines, in a distinctly Latin American context, the fairy-tale quality of the Arabian Nights with the picaresque adventures of a Tom Jones. "--Financial Times
"Eva Luna is an accomplished novel, skillfully blending humour and pathos."--The Times Literary Supplement (London)
"Eva Luna is a cornucopia of stories, a tightly concocted, seemingly effortless spilling forth of incident and accident, autobiography and fantasy. This novel is a tapestry, a rich web of whimsy."--The Commercial Appeal (Memphis)
"First, novels like Eva Luna display a straightforward, if voracious, appetite for story-telling of the oldest sort. Eva herself is that rare thing: an original and memorable character with dimensions greater than those managed by most 'real' people. The same distinction applies to Allende."--The Herald (Glasgow)
"Reading Eva Luna is as enjoyable as it is stimulating. Allende proves once again her ability to combine the political and the personal with tragedy, creativity and wit."--Santa Barbara News-Press
"Eva Luna is a prolonged and tantalizing seduction of the imagination. The novel's mix of myth and politics conveys the stuff of life."--Ham & High (UK)
"In Eva Luna, the celebration of a storyteller echoes the story of Allende herself as she has mesmerized the world with books translated into almost every language in the western cultures."--Ex Libris
