Publisher's Summary

La esperada nueva novela de Isabel Allende.

Isabel Allende parte de la célebre cita de Albert Camus -"en medio del invierno aprendí por fin que había en mí un verano invencible"- para urdir una trama que presenta la geografía humana de unos personajes propios de la América de hoy que se hallan "en el más profundo invierno de sus vidas": una chilena, una joven guatemalteca ilegal y un maduro norteamericano. Los tres sobreviven a un terrible temporal de nieve que cae en pleno invierno sobre Nueva York y acaban aprendiendo que más allá del invierno hay sitio para el amor inesperado y para el verano invencible que siempre ofrece la vida cuando menos se espera.

Más allá del invierno es una de las historias más personales de Isabel Allende: una obra absolutamente actual que aborda la realidad de la emigración y la identidad de la América de hoy a través de unos personajes que encuentran la esperanza en el amor y en las segundas oportunidades.

Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.

Wonderful!

Maravillosa historia y narración! Me identifique en muchas partes por mi estado de inmigrante en Vancouver y por el desolado sentimiento de un invierno que parece no terminar.

La magia de Isabel Allende una vez más

Extraordinario relato que nos lleva a través de las vicisitudes de personajes complejos y nos recuerda la trágica historia de Latinoamérica, siempre con un sentido del humor muy Isabeliano, que me recuerda a mi madre y a mi misma. Un gran placer!

Oh Isabel Allende... I think I’ve outgrown you

Since I first read one of her books I’ve grown in years and I’ve matured in literacy terms as well, yet her writing is still the same. For some years now, I have been reading Allende out of loyalty, mostly, but I feel I’ve been reading the same book over and over... I’m always able to predict “who did it”, no surprises anymore. She can always be easily seen reflected in one of the characters, as well as other members of her family, (like the mother / daughter that write each other persistently, like she did with her own mom). The setting is always Chile, Venezuela and USA.
Even the adjectives sound repetitive for some reason!
I would recommend this to young adults, in their early twenties; the age I was when I discovered Allende and fell in love with her stories. I guess I need something different now, excitement and passion! It’s just like in a love relationship, because it kind of is... so I guess I would say this is my last Allende book!

I gave it an extra star (so, 2) only because it was included a woman from Guatemala, where I’m from. She got most of it right, the guatemalan colloquialisms, the description of the food, the stories of violence, but the narrator ruined it. Can you imagine listening to an audiobook where George Washington speaks with an Australian accent? Well, it’s the same! I think is better not to do an accent at all, than to do an incorrect one... the mexican coyote spoke like a nicaraguan (not pronouncing the letter S), and even though the text did specify that guatemalan speak using the form “vos”, (as opposed to “tu”) which is correct, the narrator would toggle back and forth between, for example, “mira”, and “mirá”.... it’s a little thing, but to achieve excellence, little things do matter... they can make or break a story...

Una historia predecible y plana…

Sinceramente me pareció una historia que hace apología del delito y no me gustó.

En mi opinión, la historia es muy plana y predecible.

Me encanto!

Soy Guatemalteca y vivo en USA, este libro representa la realidad de los inmigrantes, gente que sufre violencia en Guate y busca refugio, por la violencia de las maras; me encanto la historia de un crimen bastante parecido a la realidad. Cómo siempre Isabel Allende me cautiva con sus libros!

Más allá del invierno

Me gustó la voz del narrador, tranquila, relajante y dando la entonación correcta a cada personaje.

promosing book that's ruined by ridiculous romance

This book tries to cover decades of latinamerican history, and its effect on modern problems. Accurate deacription of latins trying to live in North America, the struggles and the problems. however, the book is ruined by unrealistic romance between a somewhat strong woman and an alcoholic man that kills his on daughter and drives his wife to suicide. completely unrealistic to think a woman falls inlove with a man that confesses to adultery, alcoholism, drug abuse, neglicence and murder. although some parts were interesting and enjoyable the book is an overall disapointment thay verges towards commercialism and becomes insipid.

Wonderful uplifting

Isabel Allende, once more delivered a wonderful story of the ultimate gift of justice and hope. The meaning and value of deep family and random, unexpected friendships is a driving force in this story of true love.

Narrator was FANTASTIC .
