it was amazing

This book made me cry at one point. If a book can bring you to tears, then that's a pretty big selling point right there. Isabel Allende writes in the magical realism style, so if if you enjoy Gabriel Garcia Marquez I would recommend picking this up. Eva Luna is about the life, or the first forty years or so, of a woman named Eva Luna. She's born in the 1930s and grows up in an unnamed country in South America. The book focuses primarily on her childhood and the crazy situations she gets herself into. Eva's story is chock full of memorable interesting characters, including strong female characters. There's a good deal of political unrest in the story, and it's interesting to see how Eva fits into to all of that.
