Cannonball Read IV: Island Beneath the Sea by Isabel Allende

By caragwapa | Book Reviews | August 8, 2012 | Comments ()


Like all other Allendes, there really is no plot aside from following the growth, the heartaches, loves and happiness of this family and their friends they treat as family. The master is the villain, but his villainy is mild. In fact, he is better than most slave owners, but not good enough to overcome the ideas ingrained in him that slaves are not human.

I enjoyed this particular book much better that the last Allende I read. The characters and interesting and likable, plus I get to learn stuff about Haiti. It is in many ways, typical and expected, but still engrossing and enjoyable.
