Sonny author Israel Cartaya By Israel Cartaya

    Cuba, años 70. Rosa cría a su hijo Sonny a escondidas en una casa de Placetas, convencida de ser la esposa de Dios y de que Su regreso al mundo de los hombres se encuentra próximo.
    El ingreso hospitalario de la mujer, obliga a Sonny a salir de casa, provocando una notable conmoción entre sus vecinos. El muchacho no comprende nada. Por primera vez a sus dieciséis años de vida, se encuentra solo y desamparado, expuesto a la crudeza de un mundo que empieza ahora a mostrarse ante sus ojos en toda su plenitud.
    Pequeñas ciudades de provincia, aldeas de bohíos, centros de reeducación para jóvenes conflictivos, hospitales. Un viaje agridulce a través de la Cuba rural en la plenitud del régimen castrista, vivido a través de la inocencia de quien todo lo descubre por primera vez.

    Historia, romance, acoso escolar, suspense, sabotaje y muerte. ¿Locura o Voz Divina?

    Una historia que engancha de principio a fin. Te hace pasar por todos los estados de ánimo mientras vives lo que pasa con cada uno.

    Totalmente recomendado. Sonny author Israel Cartaya La recomiendo. Me enganché a la historia de Rosa en las primeras líneas, pero la de Sonny me produgeron rabia. Increíble historia. Sonny author Israel Cartaya Interesting story of life in Cuba told from the perspective of those who suffered and died for it.

    Love is everywhere, but is often distorted by circumstances until it cannot be easily recognized. Even though Sonny has been isolated for over 16 years, and Marcos has been shuffled between youth camps for about as long, they are attracted by some level of recognition as family even though they had never met before to become mutual friends and protectors. Intermittent contact with their mother after Sonny was taken away is confusing, and developing circumstances look grim, but an Angel has been watching and helping since Ross's arrival in Cuba. He becomes the missing father figure as he tries to help, but he is limited in the end. This story needs a few more chapters to achieve the hoped for ending that could still happen, but we are left with much desire and not enough information to resolve the sorry to our haunted satisfaction or worst fears while wishing for a bit more story.

    This is a very good book to read as the US is rapidly moving toward diplomatic and trade relations in spite of decades of mistrust, economic and political sanctions, and terrible suffering of all Cubans, either in Cuba or the US. Sonny author Israel Cartaya
