The Soul of a Woman | Isabel Allende

Pickpick

A beautiful tribute to the women of her soul and to the women in her life. A delicate collection of thoughts about her mission, about women's condition, about ageing as a woman, her manifesto for a better world.

“The patriarchy is stony. Feminism, like the ocean, is fluid, powerful, deep and encompasses the infinite complexity of life; it moves in waves, current, tides and sometimes in storms. Like the ocean, feminism never stays quiet.”

With a few days to spare, and with a few additional weeks needed for November‘s read, I‘ve finished my #authoramonth reading for 2021!

@Soubhiville - thanks for organizing this every year. I‘ve managed to read authors that have been on my “someday” list for too long, and I‘m so grateful!

Soubhiville Yay! That‘s awesome! 6mo

A readable collection of essays & thoughts by the acclaimed author..very interesting, & quite witty too. She talks about her family, of womanhood, feminism, & other matters that concern women worldwide- passion, love, violence, ageing, retirement, longevity. My quibble- I wished she narrated it in different chapters/sections according to the subjects, because it feels meandering. Glad to have read it. #AuthorAMonth

CarolynM Good news, Jessie - I was able to post my parcel to you yesterday 🎉 It may be some time before it reaches you, but at least it is on its way now🙂 6mo
erzascarletbookgasm @CarolynM I‘m excited! Thank you Carolyn. ❤️ Looks like mine to you is nowhere in sight, maybe will take some time too. 6mo

I really enjoyed this memoir largely because I know next to nothing about Isabel Allende. What a fascinating life she‘s had and I look forward to reading more of her work and continuing to learn more about her. #AuthorAMonth #BookSpinBingo

Interesting collection of feminist writings by this author. I found it insightful and Allende expresses her views, her hopes, and her anger through this book in a very thoughtful manner. She uses a lot of her personal background and relates it to other women. Personally, I find her voice in her fiction writing to be a bit stronger, but I appreciate her for sharing this book.

TheAromaofBooks Yay!! 7mo
Crazeedi I have an Allende book to read before the end of the month! 6mo

Maybe the first Allende book I didn‘t finish. It‘s a feminist memoir but I need no convincing.

"Happiness is not exuberant or noisy like joy or pleasure, it is silent, calm, and soft; it is an internal feeling of well-being that starts with loving myself. I am free."

I absolutely LOVE this quote! ???

"At fifteen I walked away from the church forever because of the machismo of religious organizations. I cannot belong to an institution that considers me a second class member whose authorities, always male, enjoy complete impunity and enforce their rules with dogma."

Yup. As not only a woman, but a queer woman, this quote resonates with me. It's why I could never go back to the Catholic Church, not if I want to be able to sleep at night.

I was so lucky to attend the virtual Jeffco Public Library‘s evening with Allende recently. She was so inspiring, wonderful, humorous, intelligent, passionate, etc. This short memoir is a graceful call to arms for woman to stand up against patriarchy and to embrace who you are. Just lovely.

What a lovely read.
It is a short, but enlightening read about Feminism and how Allende has worked for and relates to it. She brings humor and the perspective of age to the book that is refreshing. You get to know a bit more about her and what drives her. It is well worth the time.

Come-read-with-me My sister-in-law loves this author! I‘ll have to put this on her birthday list. Thanks for sharing! (edited) 1y
ChaoticMissAdventures @Come-read-with-me yay! I believe it comes out soon, March 2nd in the States. It is a short read, under 200 pages, but would make a lovely gift. 1y
