(كل حياة يمكن أن تروى كرواية, وكل شخص منّا هو بطل أسطورته الخاصة. في هذه اللحظة, وأنا أكتب هذه الصفحات, تراودني الشكوك, هل جرت الأحداث مثلما أتذكرها ومثلما أرويها.)
هكذا تبدأ إيزابيل الليندي سرد ذكرياتها, بعبارة لا تخلو من تأكيد في بدايتها, وتنتهي ذات العبارة بشجاعة القدرة على التشكيك. فمن جهة تمتلك الليندي ثقة التأكيد على أن كل حياة هي رواية متسلسلة, ومن جهة مقابلة تطرح ال

Isabel Allende has been my favorite author since I read House of the Spirits for the first time twenty years ago. I have read many of her other novels including Daughter of Fortune and Portrait in Sepia as well as Ines of My Soul. Just last month I devoured The Japanese Lover in a day. Yet, I have never welcomed myself into her life and read one of her memoirs, until now.
The Sum of Our Days is the memoir Allende dictated to her late daughter Paula over the span of 13 years. Allende writes of th

What? I never wrote a review of this book?

WOW!!!! I must have been crazy --or not a GR's member yet!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this book! I wish I owned a copy of it!!!! Damn--I need to get myself a copy of this book!!!

I bought it for my sister after I read it.

I wanted to invite Isabel Allende over for dinner when I was done reading --
I wanted to be part of her tribe of friends!

I fell in love with Isabel -and her family!

I STILL talk about funny parts of this book....(when her husband wrote a book),

حصيلة الأيام

هذا الكتاب هو نصف الحكاية – النصف الأول كان باولا -، حكاية السنوات التالية لـ 1992 م في حياة الكاتبة التشيلية ( ايزابيل الليندي)، ما بعد وفاة ابنتها ( باولا) وذرها لرمادها في غدير صغير في غابة كاليفورنية، حيث كانت تعود في أيامها الصعبة لتقترب من روح ابنتها، رغم أنها تؤكد طيلة الرواية أن روح ابنتها كانت موجودة حولها على الدوام حسيا ً، لا معنويا ً، وهو مكون ثقافي تشيلي سحري، ربما تسلل من السكان الأصليين، ولم تفلح سنوات عيشها في أمريكا في تخليصها من هذه الأفكار التي تبدو مضحكة للعقلاني

سأسمي هذا العمل
ما بعد باولا
كيف تتغلب الليندي على غياب ابنتها باولا ، نعلم ان الحياة لا تقف حين نفقد شخص غالٍ على قلوبنا نحن نستمر في التجول حاملين جثة ذلك الحب معنا
حين لم تنجح محاولة الليندي في ترميم وجه لمستقبل باولا و اصبحت باولا ذكرى مجيدةفي قلب أمها ، الذكرى تجسيد يحتاج احترام منا ، يحتاج حيز في مشاعرنا ، من منا له القدرة في مكاشفة ذكراه بكل اموره اليومية وكأنها حاضر لا ماضي

أمر مربك حقاً أنحن نحتاج للتشبث بالذكرى لننجو و نواصل مسيرتنا الحياتية
هذا يبدو مألوف لدى الليندي

This is a sweet and absorbing compendium of the goings-on in Allende's family in the years since her daughter's death. Though it recounts heartaches and sadnesses, the overall tone is wry and upbeat. It's really just a tale of life in a kooky but loving extended family, with emotions and ups-and-downs that a lot of us can relate to--not the specific events, of course, but the general feelings. Not that many of us take regular trips to the Amazon or India, have a daughter-in-law come out of the c ...more

تواصل المبدعة التشيلية سرد مذاكراتها بعد 13 عشر عاما من الجزء الأول المعنون باسم ابنتها باولا. أسلوب القص سلس إلى حد مزج التراجيديا بالكوميديا دون إرباك القارئ. كما أن النص مطعم بشخصيات فريدة، واقعية كالواقع وغريبة كالخيال.

تدور أحداث الأعوام الماضية من حياة ايزابيل الليندي في الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية. لذا فأسلوب الحياة وطبيعة المصاعب مختلفة عما ورد في "باولا". هناك تنوع عرقي، وجدال سياسي، هناك شذوذ جنسي، إدمان للمخدرات وعلاقات عابرة وغير ذلك من مواضيع الكتاب. لم يفوت النص الفرصة في انتقاد المج

This is Allende's second memoir, and she writes it to her daughter, Paula, who died maybe about 10 years earlier. It is an account of everything that has happened in Allende's family since Paula's death. As it is a memoir, clearly, it reads very differently from Allende's typical saga stories. The narrative arc, following the day to day events of life, is not always so smooth, naturally. What I really loved about this memoir is Allende's ability to talk openly about some of the deepest pains in ...more

Isabel Allende's memoir is a conversation with her daughter Paula, who she lost years before to a hereditary disease. Allende lives in a huge tribe of a family that includes step-children, grandchildren, a Buddhist lesbian couple, and her extended family from Chile. Allende presents herself warts and all, as the mother-in-law from hell. At times, her actions make perfect sense to me and other times I can't believe how much she interferes. I forgive her for most of her faults, but there are some ...more

I actually read this in English: The Sum of Our Days. I am a huge fan of Isabel Allende. This memoir continues where the book Paula left off. Isabel once again writes to her dead daughter, Paula, and continues the family saga.

I liked House of Spirits very much. This? Well this is a memoir, written some years after the death of her daughter Paula. It is sometimes written in the form of a dialogue with Paula. It has the feel of confession, apology and regret; not uncommon in memoirs written in later life. But Isabel Allende is such a firebrand, such a fighter, a real spitfire that she doesn't sink into it. She basically calls up her tough attitude and gathers her family and imposes both her will and her intense love to ...more

Allende is a great writer, which made this book easy to read. But ultimately, I found her memoir/letter to her dead daughter to be disjointed and lacking focus. I was also disappointed with Sayers Peden's translation of many of Allende's phrases into reductive sexist English (he, him, his, etc.). I was surprised to learn that Allende is a nightmare mother-in-law and that she had plastic surgery. Bravo to her for her honesty.

In these memories, Isabel reminds her death daughter Paula and how this changed her life. He also describes her life in California, after her exile from Chile during Pinochet's dictatorial period. He tell us how her found her great love of her live and how she managed to reunite the whole family around her, her writing work and the several travels which inspired her to write her books.
Colleen826
If I were feeling charitable I would give this memoir three stars, but since the book ended with a TMI scene in which Isabel and her elderly husband get naked together in a jacuzzi and she asserts her "non-feminist" love for him, I won't. It's a shame that this is the first Allende book I've read, because now I'm not sure if her fiction is any good. Based on the meandering nature and average prose of this memoir, my guess is not really, but maybe I'll still give The House of the Spirits a go sin ...more

وصلت الكاتبة إزابيل الي بر الامان النفسي والروحي مع نهاية كتابة هذه المذكرات.
صراعها مع نفسها اولا ومع من حولها بدأ بمرض ابنتها ودخولها في حالة ثبات (كوما) وزاد خوفها على من حولها بعد ان ذاقت طعم الفقد.
انها ام مناضلة ومستقلة حزينة لكن متمسكة بالامل .ام فقدت ابنتها ولكن عملت على جمع "قبيلة" عائلية حولها (كما اسمتها) علها تعوض عن خسارتها.
ولكن مع كل فرد جديد انتقته وادخلته الى القبيلة كانت تزيد على قائمتها فرد جديد تخاف فقدانه ...

Изпълнена с наситени, разнообразни емоции, простиращи се на всички полюси. Върховно щастие, неочаквани отрицателни обрати като гръм от ясно небе, силни сблъсъци с най-близките. Спокойно може да се допусне, че историите на Алиенде са като художествена измислица – но не са ли това чувства/събития от живота на всички хора? Просто авторката умее да разказва така емоционално и искрено, че прави историята си необикновена.

Допадна ми цялостният мироглед, емоционалност и стремеж към отвореност на Исабел.

Premetto che per me è il secondo libro che leggo di Isabel e trovo che sia una meravigliosa scoperta. Mai avrei pensato che sarei stata completamente presa da un suo libro.
Mi spiace solo di non essere stata attratta prima da lei…..ora credo, però, che sarà difficile smettere di leggerla.
Spero solo di riuscire, conoscendola ancora poco, di esprimere perfettamente ciò che mi ha fatto provare, le emozioni che ha suscitato in me questo libro.

Recommends it for: readers of author memoirs
I picked this book up on a whim from my local used bookstore mostly because its difficult to find biographies/memoirs for people about people who don't have a twitter following or those who create sensational headlines. In hindsight, I'm surprised I bought it because I wasn't blown away by the one book I had read by the author,Island Beneath the Sea.

I'm glad I did purchase it. Allende's candor and colorfulness swept me away. Upon finishing this book, I read her first bestseller, The House of the

Since discovering her novels in high school, Isabel Allende has remained one of my favorite authors. Her personal life, is just as entertaining and dramatic as those of her fictional characters. "The Sum of Our Days" is her second memoir, detailing family events following the death of her daughter Paula, whom she wrote about in her first memoir, aptly titled "Paula".

Allende never fails to be interesting and her family proves to be a colorful bunch of characters. Despite a myriad of problems (re

ربما لم يكن ذلك الجزء ف جودة الجزء الاول من السيرة الذاتية لإيزابيل الليندى ولكنها ليست سيئة ايضا بل تضمنت اختلافا كبيرا عن الجزء الاول ، حاولت ايزابيل ان تشرح لنا ما حصل لها بعد موت ابنتها باولا نتيجة المرض وتأثير ذلك ع جميع افراد القبيلة - دائما ما تطلق ع اسرتها ومعارفها ذلك الاسم - وكيف استمرت بهم الحياة وتنقلت بهم من حال لآخر .

Isabel once again opens her home and heart and family to the scrutiny of her readers. She lives seemingly a thousand lifetimes worth of anguishes, sorrows, defeats, and finally joys. In this memoir, she writes of her life after her daughter, Paula, had died an untimely death. As though, that event in her life weren't painful enough, the years following were also filled with other pains and sorrows that seem to be as devastating as death. But somehow she gathers her family, her tribe, to herself ...more

Allende writes to her deceased daughter, giving updates on what has happened in their family since her death. It was hard to get started though, especially since she opens the book describing how she decided to write it because she couldn't think of anything else to write. Allende seems like a sweet mother but I was offended at times by the way she uses stereotypes as descriptors ("...like an Amazon"). I found her to be much more engaging on a recent radio interview describing her latest novel, ...more

Depois do "Paula" este livro foi uma lufada de ar fresco! Isabel escreve uma espécie de carta dirigida à filha onde narra a forma como a família vai vivendo após a sua morte.
A cada página vamos-nos sentindo cada vez mais íntimos de Isabel e da sua "tribo".
É simplesmente maravilhoso, pelo facto das próprias personagens serem reais e de Isabel nos deixar entrar assim na sua vida, fazendo-nos perceber muitas das suas obras :)

Allende drew me in after a slow start. She is one pint-size power house who is as fearless in love and politics as she is in her writing. A person worthy of admiration.
