I had read Allende's book, Zorro, which I liked very much. So I thought I'd give this one a try. It was very disappointing - excruciating detail and way too many characters. It was difficult to feel engaged with any but the main 2 characters because of the quantity of people and their stories. And there were some characters who made a 2-page appearance and were never heard from again. That's real life - we sometimes have very brief interactions with people. But it makes for a frustrating read. It was also a depressing story; I got the sense that some of the misery was just thrown in to make the trials and tribulations of the main characters more trying. But the result was too much. There was an attempt at the end to pull the strings together, but it didn't work very well. Not a book I'd recommend except to diehard Allende fans.
