    Everything of ours from lives to literature has always been so disposable, she thinks It is as if a little stopper that has contained years of bitterness inside her has been pulled out She smells her anger it has a metallic smell mixed in with earth, a rusting plow driven into the ground Around 1844, the Dominican Independence War gave the Dominican Republic freedom from Haiti Years later, the Dominican President would turn the country over to Spanish rule Disorder was inevitable A revolution to [...]

    I love Julie Alvarez She develops her characters so so well you want to know what happens to them and then don t want to story to endview by Debbis Lee Wesselman This deeply imaginative portrait of the Dominican poet Salome Urena and her daughter Camila captures the people behind the revolutions in the Dominican Republic and Cuba without idealizing them, without relegating them to mouths spouting political dogma As Salome says to her young husband when he chides her for writing a non revolutiona [...]

  3. Loyola University Chicago Libraries says:
    This is an extraordinary book The fictional account of a real family from the Dominican Republic, the book follows the lives of both famed poet Salome Urena de Henriquez and her daughter, Camila I particularly loved its structure the chapters alternate between Salome and Camila s point of view, and while Salome s story starts at the beginning of her life and progresses toward the end, Camila s proceeds backwards Salome dies when Camila is very young, yet the two women have a profound effect on e [...]

    Based on my daughter s handwriting on the note I was using as a bookmark, I first started this book when she was 4, nine years ago It was a time where between children and work and the introduction of smart phones, I was starting to lose the ability to read books, and I didn t make it far in this one With the passing of time and purposeful focus, I ve relearned to read books and started this one over from the beginning I can see why this one wasn t well paired for me at that time The skipping ar [...]

  6. Rivera Sun says:
    A pensive book, seen through the lens of a daughter who lost a famous mother at a young age Having known a couple people like that minus the famous part of the mother , I found the character true to reality, having that nebulous uncertain quality that seeks to entwine her identity with the ungraspable mother Usually, I like stronger characters, bold and decisive ones But, situated against a backdrop of revolutions with passion pouring out of everyone else s ears, the contrast of the character wa [...]

  7. Isabelle says:
    We have a five star In the Name of Salome is a novel that takes the reader through a journey of 100 years of Caribbean history featured are real historical people and events so you get a good dose of history lessons The book is told in 2 perspectives, opening with Camila Henriquez Ure a, age 60 in 1960 as she leaves her job teaching in Vassar College to travel to Cuba were young revolutionary Fidel Castro is urging people to come and join him Camila is the daughter of famed poetess, Salome Ure a [...]

  8. Andrea says:
    I read this for a book club and didn t realize until the end that it was based on a true story I think I would have been less annoyed by some of the storyline if I had known that up front In the Name of Salome is written about a famous poet from the Dominican Republic and her daughter My favorite thing about this book is its unique structure The chapters alternate between the mother s story told in the first person and the daughter s story told in the third person , but they also mirror each oth [...]

  9. Michelle says:
    Once again the book club selection this month took me to a place that I know very little about, the Dominican Republic This is a historical fiction novel based on real people, with literary liberties taken by Ms Alvarez for a bit of interest.The story follows Salome Urena, the national poet of DR during its early days of independence from Spain, and her only daughter, Salome Camila The book begins with Camila in her sixties, retiring from her teaching position at a university and trying to figur [...]

  10. Judith says:
    As much as I loved her other books, Julia Alvarez let me down a bit on this one She writes historical fiction of Latin American culture, revolution and struggle In The Time of the Butterflies was a fabulous example of seamless writing and fully fleshed out characters In her book, In The Name of Salome, her characters are muddy and difficult to keep apart There are so many different layers of struggles and switches back in forth in time, that it is difficult to keep separate who is who and when t [...]

  11. Elizabeth says:
    This is an extraordinary book The fictional account of a real family from the Dominican Republic, the book follows the lives of both famed poet Salome Urena de Henriquez and her daughter, Camila I particularly loved its structure the chapters alternate between Salome and Camila s point of view, and while Salome s story starts at the beginning of her life and progresses toward the end, Camila s proceeds backwards Salome dies when Camila is very young, yet the two women have a profound effect on e [...]

  12. Natalie says:
    In my opinion, this book was not as good as In the Time of the Butterflies How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents and Yolanda I loved all of those books This one was still good, but I didn t enjoy it as much It is based on the life of Salome Uren a a Dominican Poet who had a huge impact on her country It was really interesting to learn about her, I hadn t heard of her before The author, Julia Alvarez trades off each chapter, writing one in the voice of Salome the mother , and the other with Cam [...]

  13. Joleen says:
    This is my second favorite book from one of my favorite writers I love the concept of how she presents the mother and the daughter and moving both forward and backward through their individual stories until they meet Like the book of hers that utterly wowed me, In the Time of the Butterflies, this book delves into history while keeping the characters fresh and vivid and realistic, and it deals with a difficult time in the Dominican Republic and strong women who stood up for what they believed in [...]

  14. Anastasia says:
    The story itself was perfectly decent and all, the changing of the two narratives wasting, but the language was tedious It took me close to a month to finish this book because the language was just too thick and boring It may have had something to do with the smattering of random Spanish words throughout the book, I don t speak Spanish so it didn t work so well in my mind Either way, this was a worthy story if not a good book.

  15. Katie says:
    I wish I knew of the actual history of the DR Haiti This is a historical fiction based on a real life family I had glimpses of what I could learn from the book, but didn t know enough to pick up on the measure of what happened I had a hard time following the format It alternates between chapters about one generation to chapters of another generation, one story goes forwards, the other goes back.

  16. Marvin says:
    A novel based on the life of a real patriotic poet of the Dominican Republic her family It has an unusual structure, with chapters alternating between the first person voice of the poet telling her story chronologically and that of her daughter telling her story in reverse It started with a lot of promise, but didn t live up to its promise too repetetive too politically correct, perhaps.

  17. Anna says:
    This is by far my least favorite book by Julia Alvarez, who is one of my favorite writers The characters and plot were not very interesting and the writing seemed uninspired Go read How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents instead

  18. Johanna says:
    Took me awhile to get into it Salomes story kept me wanting , but the back Forth with Camilas story made it hard to push thru It wasn t horrible, but something was missing Not sure what.


  19. Yeimi Alvarez says:
    This story is from the 1800 a story of a mother and her duagher it takes place in thedominican republic a time of constant political upheaval She wrote poetry as a teenager for the country that many people read The poetry that she would write changed meny peoples lives and acttually motivated the men to fight for their country The author also writes about the daughter and how they both made impact with each other.

  20. Seyed says:
    This is not a review, but a wish item that we anywhere in part of the world, had a few wo men of such caliber of the combination of intelligence compassion balls will no, one in a many thousands, don t work we need As far as the work itself is concerned, well, another Julia Alvarez work says it all.

  21. David Jr. says:
    Interesting read I got it based on reviews and my desire to read as much magical realism as possible Well, this isn t magical realism but I am not giving it a low rating because of this For me, it was hard to follow The story starts from opposite ends of the story and then meets in the middle It was not just a page turner for me It was a nice story and I liked it but it just didn t flow.

  22. Ann says:
    I found this book kind of tedious as it was told by two different people who hardly interacted It also had several flashbacks so the story did not flow well The story of the national poetess Solome Urena should have been its own story The story of her daughter just muddied the story.

  23. Miguel Jophiel Rivas says:
    Lo le , me gust , y no hay nada m s que decir sobre l.Es un libro muy rosa que intenta representar a una de las mas grandes poetisas dominicanas de una manera muy d bil.

  24. Maria says:
    Well written account about a mother and daughter and their influence in the Dominican Republic and Cuba I recommend it

  25. Brett Swanson says:
    The narrative style of this novel is pretty cool, and made the story that much enjoyable to me The book follows the lives of Salome, a famous poet in the Dominican Republic, and her daughter Camila Only the stories aren t told together Salome s story is told from the time she is six until her death, and Camila s begins when she is in her 50 s and tells her story backwards until she is three We skip back and forth between each woman s story with each new chapter, and we get a unique view of how [...]

  26. Patrick says:
    In recent years, literary authors and publishing houses have published dozens of fictionalized accounts of historical figures, with Joyce Carol Oates BLONDE Marilyn Monroe and Russell Banks CLOUDSPLITTER John Brown being prime examples of this genre Because I m tiring of such fiction, I never would have bought IN THE NAME OF SALOME if I had known Alvarez had joined this literary trend and I would have missed out on a fabulous book as a result Yes, this may not be Alvarez s best work, but the lit [...]

  27. Jessica says:
    Like the only other book of hers that I ve read, Yo , this book is constructed on an intriguing but semi disorienting style where no two consecutive chapters are told in the same voice or by the same person In Yo each chapter focused on a different member of a large family, and Alvarez switched between first person and third person tactics Here, the chapters alternate ABABAB, with A chapters telling the chronological story of the mother from childhood through death, and the B chapters telling th [...]

  28. Callie says:
    I m finally done with this book It didn t take that long to read, but it felt like forever, because I really want to give my attention to Called Out of Darkness Randy told me to read this because he is teaching it, so Randy if you have some insights, I d love to hear them Alternating between the stories of two women, a mother, national poet of the Dominican Republic, that s the title I give her and her daughter who never knew her mother except through legends, letters and her mother s poetry Mom [...]

  29. Susie Besecker says:
    The author has a good style and creates captivating characters Was confused with all the Salomes and Papanchos however Strong vocabulary, good struggle, historical fiction, interesting perspectives Ending a bit weak but not terrible.
