review La casa de los espíritus

La casa de los espíritus Summary ¹ 8 Una saga familiare del nostro secolo in cui si rispecchiano la storia e il destino di tutt. If this world is going to be a better place for our grandchildren and great grandchildren it will be women who make it so Isabel AllendePhewee The House of the Spirits is a tumultuous epic which chronicles four generations of two extraordinary familiesThe eponymous house is large it boasts three courtyards and a Chil an version of the Addams FamilyImagine too if you will Barrab s the somewhat unnatural domesticated doghorse who was ill advisedly fed olive oil until he covered the house from top to bottom with diarrhoea BlurrghFollowing in the giant footsteps of Gabriel Garc a M ruez Allende lets rip with her own brand of el realismo m gicoStrong female roles abound in this captivating story from Rosa who has the maritime grace of a mermaid to Clara the soothsayer whose apocalyptic visions include exploding horses and cows that are hurled into the sea and Tr nsito Soto the entrepreneurial prostitute who symbolises success in the face of adversityA mainstay of magical realism is that characters are expected to be beautifully realised and Allende doesn t disappoint Not for one bit Her lead goes to reluctant altruist Esteban Trueba whose expectations of grandeur befit his pedigree but not his habitudeTrueba wishing to mine for gold takes control of a lawless chunk of godforsaken land Despite improving the social conditions of the peasants under his patronage he becomes the most hated and feared scumbag in the entire regionWhen done with kicking hens throwing tantrums and raping village girls he expects his subordinates to show him some gratitude Seriously what a complete arseDichotomies abound good and evil triumph and tragedy and the unjustified pomposity of Trueba sets him up for a hubristic turn of eventsI LOVED this novel I am a latecomer to Allende and with this one story she has propelled herself onto my top tier of writersThat said the magical start to the story gradually capitulates to a realismo style and does become something of a slog at times Despite this the craftsmanship of her writing never diminishes The sex is fleshy and sweaty and the book is simply awash with anarchists prostitutes and tables that move just by the power of thought Ay caramba There s even a bazooka wielding president As if that could ever happen stifles a snigger The House of the Spirits is stormy dramatic and beautifully written I even missed it when I was away from itA self indulgent afterthoughtSo skilful was Allende s writing that she turns Trueba s Latino machismo on its head Most surprisingly you might even end up feeling sorry for the misogynistic bastardThose of you old enough to remember the excellent cop drama NYPD Blue might have experienced the same volte face in respect of Detective Andy Sipowicz the corrupt racist homophobic alcoholic sleazeball who slowly begins to uestion the values he was raised with and thereafter begins to win our hearts and minds In my view an unbelievably gifted piece of TV character writing that is rarely bettered

La casa de los espíritus Summary ¹ 8 O un popolo Un grande affresco che per fascino ed emozione può ricordare al lettore nell?. When I was a kid me and my brother used to spend most weekends at our grandparents house And most of those weekends we would watch one of the same two movies on the good ol VCR Steel Magnolias and The House of the Spirits No one seems to know the latter movie when I mention it but it starred a bunch of impressive names Meryl Streep Jeremy Irons Glenn Close Antonio Banderas and Winona Ryder My memory might be painting a better picture than the truth but me and my brother LOVED the movieSo it really kinda amazes me that it took so long for me to get my hands on the book and finally read it It s everything I can t help but love A rich family saga filled with drama hardship love violence and a touch of magical realism The characters that once fascinated me in the movie have reemerged in a far complex and fleshed out depiction It is such an interesting story spanning multiple generations and looking at the intricate relationships between the characters whilst the background features the post colonial political struggles of ChileI love the beautiful and wild South American setting I love the subtly woven aspects of magical realism I love and sometimes hate the characters I am fascinated by even the politics of the novel and the huge disparities between the women who campaigned for gender euality and those who believed a husband ruled over his wife This book has everything family politics love magic I always enjoy it when a novel can bring in many different elements that we love and get the balance rightMy favourite character has always been Ferula played by Glenn Close in the movie I find her the most tragic character and the one most buried beneath layers of complexity even though she isn t ever really the novel s main focus She was one of those people who are born for the greatness of a single love for exaggerated hatred for apocalyptic vengeance and for the most sublime forms of heroism but she was unable to shape her fate to the dimensions of her amorous vocation so it was lived out as something flat and grey that was trapped between her mother s sickroom walls wretched tenements and the tortured confessions with which this large opulent hot blooded woman made for maternity abundance action and ardor was consuming herself Ferula is my favourite but she is one in a sea of very different and interesting individuals There is of course Esteban Trueba He is violent selfish and earns very little sympathy from me over the course of the novel that s not to say he isn t of interest because he certainly is And there s his wife Clara a woman prone to bouts of clairvoyance that have dictated the direction of her life a direction she has accepted without complaint Then there s Blanca Esteban and Clara s daughter who falls in love with Pedro Tercero against her father s wishes and constantly defies him by pursuing the relationshipDespite the pretty cover this book isn t without its graphic descriptions of violence and some rape scenes It isn t a nice book but I suppose many of the best books aren t nice It is however a wonderful portrait of a family spread over several generations and it is as moving and beautiful as I d hoped Blog Leafmarks Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr
