The House of the Spirits

I have recently joined a book club, and the book of the month is The House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende. I'm only about a hundred pages into this 750 page book, but for two days reading I'd say that's good progress :-D So far this book seems like a gorgeous look into a family generation by generation, and I can't wait to talk about it with my book club. I would highly recommend the read. The text and language can be a little dense, but if you're used to reading classics it should be nothing! I love seeing all the through lines come to fruition in this book, and even just 100 pages in I can already see so many family stories intertwining. :)

Re: The House of the Spirits

Just finished this book! Just in time too, the book club meeting is today! I cut it a little close but finished it, and I'm so glad that I read it. I highly recommend people read this book, it's a long read but worth it. It follows three generations of this family, and while for the most part, it seems like a regular family depiction, there are paranormal and fantastical elements in it too, mainly clairvoyants and ghosts. If anyone ends up reading this let me know, I'd love to talk about it with someone!
