Just not my cup of tea.
I actually won a book of my choice a while back, and out of the few, poor amount of books I had to choose from, I chose this one. I figured I’d read it- it sounded amazing! And Isabel Allende had such good reviews all the time, so why not?
Great mistake. I found her writing to be tedious to my personality. I couldn’t get past the first pages as it failed miserably to catch my interest and was clearly not the type of literature I enjoy, for it was full of socio-political commentary and sounded too pretentious.
I guess I’ll stick to the genres I know I enjoy, because clearly my incursion in others has failed.
