Ten Women
Ten Women | Mercela Serrano, Beth Fowler
Listening to stories gives you many lives, telling them dims loneliness." Marcela Serrano Nine Chilean women from vastly different backgrounds have been brought together by their beloved therapist, Natasha, to talk about their lives and help each other heal. From a teenage computer whiz confronting her sexual identity, to a middle-aged recluse who prefers the company of her dog over that of most humans, the women don't have much in common on the surface. And yet as they tell their stories, unlikely common threads are discovered, bonds are formed, and lives are transformed. The women represent the many cultural, racial, and social groups that modern Chile is composed offrom housekeeper to celebrity television personalityand together their stories form a pastiche that is at times achingly sad, and at other times funny and inspiring. This is an intricately woven, beautifully rendered tale of the universal bonds between women from one of Latin America's most celebrated novelists.

In this book I visited the country of Chili. This story is told by 10 different women. It was an interesting read as each story was told by each individual woman as they experienced life. Add the cultural differences and it‘s a truly absorbing read. #travelthroughbooks #mayreading #chili

Mehso-so

This book covers ten women‘s lives in Chile. None of the stories particularly stuck with me. I guess I don‘t understand the culture. Still, I am glad that I read it.

Starting this since it‘s too dark in my room to read a regular book, and I can‘t find my book light. Thank goodness for my phone!

I‘m loving all the literary references in this! Allende is to be expected, given her father‘s political situation, but it also references Margaret Atwood and others.

Sace That cover is gorgeous! 4y

1. At work for 2 1/2 more hours;
2. Tagged, and American Fire;
3. Mood, what I have on hand, and “obligations” like book club or buddy reads.

SilversReviews The obligations are what I use too, but that is ok. At least I don‘t have to find something. 😊 Thanks for playing. 4y
Lcsmcat @SilversReviews I didn‘t like the word, because it can have negative connotations and I don‘t feel negative about it. It‘s just another way to choose a book. 😀 4y
SilversReviews @Lcsmcat I don‘t feel negative about it either. 😊 It is a BIG help. 😊 4y

This is really a set of short stories about ten women in Chile. I liked how they were connected, yet gave insight into a wide range of experiences the women had. I loved learning about Chile and seeing life from so many women‘s perspectives.

Weaponxgirl Have you read any Isabel Allende? She's from the same area and writes beautiful books. House of the spirits is a fave. Anyway, stacked! 4y
Lauren_reading @Weaponxgirl I‘ve read a couple - I know Daughter of Fortune- but I haven‘t read the one you mentioned so I‘ll have to check it out! 4y
Weaponxgirl I recently read daughter of fortune and really liked it but house of the spirits was amazing to me. It's one of those books that all the authors future books get compared to by default. 4y
Godmotherx5 I need to read it. Kindle had a bargain a few weeks ago. 4y

In my opinion, the set-up for the book was chosen nicely to display the range of women's experiences in Chile, so that it still made sense to all be in one book. The "Ten Women" are actually nine women's stories and they are connected by the same therapist and the tenth women is the therapist's story. It's almost a collection of short stories that are connected.

My selections from Amazon's World Book Day free books.

There are 3 days, 19 hours left to get your free books.

Traci1 Just out of curiosity, did you pay for the audio additionally or does it just show headphones because that's available on those titles? I was thinking about adding audio to a couple of them. 4y
Beckys_Books @Traci1 I did not pay for the audio because it was free through kindle unlimited. I "bought" just two of the books. I think the audio is extra for them. 4y
Traci1 Oh, that makes sense. I don't have unlimited but I remember now seeing the audio was free for that. Thanks. ☺ 4y
