The House of the Spirits

By Isabel Allende

Email This Page

Allende’s debut novel is the book that made me love books: an epic novel, Spirits follows the Trueba family as they live through social and political upheavals in an unnamed, Latin American country. I’m guessing Chile. Using elements of magical realism to create unforgettable characters, this remains one of Allende’s tour-de-force(s).

Perfect for:

  • Lovers of rich, historical epic narratives.
  • Readers who enjoy magical realism.
  • Anyone who has yet to read Allende. Start here.
