Many critics have noted that Paula resembles Allende's fictional works because the real characters, situations, and events from her life are described in the same style as her fictional ones. Style, defined as a specific way of using elements of writing composition to convey ideas and to give the text a stamp of the author's personality, is an indication of Allende's presence in all of her works. In Paula, when the narrator speaks of her identity as a writer, she admits to creating her novels and short stories on the basis of real-life encounters.
