Opinion

Prolific, best-selling Chilean writer Isabel Allende, author of Daughter of Fortune and other books, said in a November 25th interview with Spanish newspaper La Razon that JK Rowling should receive the Nobel Prize.
"I admire immensely the author, I love her books and the movies based in them and I thank her, as mother and as grandmother, that she has all the children around the world reading. When I see a child of eight-years-old with a tremendous book 'Harry Potter' reading in the bus, I think that Rowling should receive the Nobel."

When the reporter asked about Allende's recent book, Forest of the Pygmies, she answered:

"Unfortunately, there is not a little detail in common between Harry Potter and my trilogy. How [much] I would wish to be able to imagine stories as fantastic as Harry Potter!"
