    Desencuentro, or ‘Disconnect’ in English, is a beautifully intriguing collection of stories of human disconnectedness and loss. Author Nancy Alonso paints a darker picture with a touch of humor throughout. It is very relevant, especially if you’ve ever experienced disconnect in your relationships or in life. The characters come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences but are intertwined cohesively. My favorite story was, in fact, called Disconnect. It’s a story written as a letter from someone older to a younger lover, describing the dichotomy of desire, and yet impossibility, of this unconventional, forbidden connection. Desencuentro is a wonderful read and I could hardly put it down. I highly recommend this book to anyone with a passion for culture and diversity.

    Desencuentro es un libro muy interesante y entretenido. No puedes dejar de leer de tan emocionante que se pone la trama en todas las pequeñas historias que se encuentran en este libro. Desencuentro tiene una variedad de temas que te permiten reír, pensar y ¡hasta meditar! Por ejemplo, dos de mis historias favoritas fueron “Mala suerte” y “Confesión”. En “Mala suerte” se narra una situación peculiar; una chica que es muy supersticiosa y conoce a una persona especial en un vuelo de avión. “Confesión” es una historia sobre las revelaciones de todos los problemas personales de los pacientes de un doctor. Los problemas de un paciente no eran nada que no supieran los demás pacientes ya que todos ellos sabían lo que les pasaba a todos y cada uno de ellos. Es interesante la perspectiva que tiene la autora Nancy Alonso y muy única su técnica narrativa. Me divertí muchísimo leyendo este libro que lo recomiendo sin pensarlo dos veces.
