What did you think of this book? I've had it on my wishlist but something is holding me back from getting it.

I enjoyed it. It really made me want to learn more about the Pablo Escobar years in Columbia. I thought the book did a great job of showing how outside forces constrict decisions and make them not really decisions. The book shows how both the privileged and the poor had to contend with the cartel situation.
