    I loved this story This was one that I lived with for uite a while like a long week Lavinia reminds me so much of myself I have always wanted to rebel against the archaic constraints of my home country I wanted to be happy and free and independent When I finally had a chance to be myself I got to know the unscrupulous society I had to deal with Haughty clients who wouldn't understand a thing lascivious supervisors who would hit on you up to the point that makes you uit and all those offenses in the street Lavinia has a little bit of everything in it Talking about feminism how to deal with problems of being an independent woman and stuff like that are just the first half When she decides to change her goals namely unify them the story becomes even better I also loved that native south American woman warrior who lived within the orange tree Made me believe we can all go through the same thing without noticing it

    I read this book a few years ago shortly after reading Belli's memoir and found this to be very close to her own story I liked the book's description of a young woman's struggle to balance the privilege she had been raised in and her new affiliation with a budding revolution If you liked this book read her memoir as well The Country Under my Skin which is even better This really shows the depth is her own struggle and the courage it took to walk the balance between both worlds

    I didn't love this book until the end and then it wasn't because of anything in particular that happened in it but the way it felt after the end with the whole story and world that was created in my mind at once

    The best book I have read this year so far This book was perfect Gioconda Belli wove together so many themes into this book flawlessly When I told people I was reading a book about a dead indigenous Nahuatl? woman who possesses an orange tree when its roots penetrated her dead body and then sort of inhabits a woman's body when she drinks her orange juice they think its weird But the first paragraphs describing the possession of the orange tree by the deceased Itza are some of the most beautiful opening paragraphs I have ever read I was hookedI loved the parallels between a woman's role in 1500 Spanish invaded Central America and a woman's role in guerrilla warfare Central America And the futility of the struggle in 1500 and 1970s the whole idea of an idealistic crusade And the way Itza inhabits Lavinia's blood to give her strength and courageI felt like Gioconda Belli really truly understands how women are undervalued in society and she puts it into words through the thoughts and actions of her characters so well I felt like I needed to take notes while reading this book because she expressed ideas so wellI was not so crazy about Felipe and felt that Lavina and Felipe's relationship was not convincing enough but hey their whole struggle with machismo is just part of the story

    La historia de dos mujeres guerreras valientes seducidas por sus sueños Confieso ue prefiero la historia de la mujer ue habita el naranjoThe story of two warrior women brave seduced by their dreams I confess that I prefer the story of the woman who inhabits the orange tree

    This magical realist novel said to be based upon Belli's own experiences as a Sandanista follows the parallel narratives of Lavinia a modern day Nicaraguan architect who becomes involved in the struggle to overthrow her country's dictator; and Itza a 16th century Nahuatl warrior woman fighting the Spanish conuistadors History is alive in than a metaphorical sense in The Inhabited Woman as the spirit of Itza trapped in an orange tree is literally consumed by Lavinia When the time comes Itza knows what to doThe Inhabited Woman was my first exposure to the magical realism of Latin American fiction read the year that it was first translated into English and I was enchanted with it This tale of love and conflict was a moving reflection on the interconnectedness of all struggles for justice highlighting the many ways in which current events are a continuation of historic patterns

    C 1988 NicaraguaThe back cover says the author is a representative of the Sandinistas in Nicaragua ie in parliament?This sort of helps explain why the book seems like an apologia a sort of cheerleading for thea revolutionary movementIt is very well done in parts showing the rev movement from a very personal perspective of an educated talented young woman who is a member of the elite We see or rather hear in sometimes preachy monologues her thinking changing on Women the Lower Classes RevolutionariesI do feel I got a small taste of the capital city of Nicaragua and a bigger taste of class differences and class prerogatives She shows uite well how the military junta men are shunned by the traditional eliteI wish for the judgment of a native Spanish speaker about all the many phrases in the book that sound to me like they are literal translations from English Maybe they are really all perfectly good current Central American Spanish

    I wish I weren't too lazy to read this book in the original Spanish because I think some of its power got lost in translation It's also a bit dated but I kind of loved that It's set in the late 70s and early 80s in some unnamed Central American country but the author is Nicaraguan and it seems largely inspired by her involvement with the Sandinista movement It was really compelling and readable and very evocative of a disco dancing ideology embracing moment in tine There's a parallel story of a murdered native woman whose spirit inhabits a tree in the courtyard of the main character's house which I felt didn't really add much to the main narrative and the ending in a final blaze of glory seemed a bit elegiac than realistic but I really enjoyed the setting and the period detail If you're interested in Central America of the late 20th century I'd recommend this
