Very well written. A great portrayal of history of the drug lords of Columbia. Complete and detailed and informative. A great read.
I loved this book. After I read it I thought "this would make a great movie" I think that they have a script and even an actor to play the main character. I just loved this book because it had so many twists and turns. I have to hand it to the Colombian police force. They really figured out how to get to him.
This was a fantastic delivery peppered with details about this famous narco boss. The author read the book effectively and never distracted me away from evolving time line. The book tries to reflect varying view points of the players present however, it definitely supports the views of U.S. operatives. I hope that the author considers writing a sequel documentary from additional interviews with still living members about their involvement.
Overall, a great listen, highly recommend for those who want to know more about Pablo and his organization.
Great story about the life and end of Pablo Escobar. Focuses more on his activities and life outside the U.S. Reads like a novel. Great reader.
An interesting look into Foreign relations. Interesting how the USA knew where Pablo Escobar was at but the Colombian Authorities where unable to apprehend him. I have done my own research and one of the final theories on Pablo's death is absolutely correct. You will have to read to understand.
Mark Bowden is a great author and great reader. He gives a very thorough understanding of the story. I felt much smarter when I had finished this book. By listening to the book, you also learn a lot about the country. You won't be dissapointed if you buy this book.
I had high hopes for this book as I had read Blackhawk Down (also by this author), and loved it.
Killing Pablo turned out to be a bit of a disappointment for me which was a surprise because of the extremely colorful (to put it mildly) life of Pablo Escobar.
This telling of the efforts to track down one of history's most notorious criminals was lacking in my view, and I found myself frequently looking ahead to my next selection from audible.com.
