      Gabriel Garc a M rquez is usually associated with his novels containing elements of magical realism, but he was a reporter in his younger days In News of a Kidnapping he returns to nonfiction to tell the story of ten hostages who were kidnapped by the wealthy Medellin drug cartel in Colombia Pablo Escobar used the hostages to bargain with the Colombian government when he feared he would be extradited to the United States in 1990 for drug crimes The city of Medellin, where the drug cartel was bas [...]

      Impresionante cr nica period stica que con sinceridad y supuesta simpleza logra helarte la sangre.Un relato que sin ser una de esas historias en las que Garc a Marquez mostraba todo su talento e imaginaci n, tiene una poes a muy especial Me ha impresionado en muchos aspectos y sobretodo me ha sobrecogido gracias a la pluma de Garc a M rquez, siempre incisiva, clara y maravillosa.

    4. Louise on said:

      Before his novels came to define magical realism, Gabriel Garcia Marquez was a reporter and journalist This work is from 1996 after his greatest novels It was also a time when the perpetrators of the crimes he writes of were still free and able to do harm.The modest title belies the stunning narrative While the focus is on the hostages, it is also the story of how the wily Pablo Escobar negotiated surrender to the Colombian government to include a prison of his own design and staffing so that he [...]

      I loved this book because I knew what to expect I didn t expect the magical realism that I love Marquez for I didn t expect depiction of feelings in any direct way This is a journalistic account of a series of kidnappings happened in Colombia during the drug trafficking war days I was surprised by how he was able to put the pieces together without sensationalizing The narration was compelling and I finished the whole book in my record time Recommend anyone this book, but make sure they read the [...]

      I don t generally watch much TV My husband watches than me and knows which shows I ll like We recently finished watching the first season of Narcos about Pablo Escobar This book was a nice addition to the TV series, although I prefer the latter The book moved slowly than I had hoped, yet it was a compelling look at that dark period in Colombia There s no doubt that Pablo Escobar was an absolute monster One of my favorite quotes The most unsettling and dangerous aspect of his personality was hi [...]

      4.5 rounded upIn a nutshell, the central focus of News of a Kidnapping is the story of ten abductions, the victims experiences in captivity, and the families efforts to get these people released, but to tell that story, the author places these kidnappings in the wider context of Colombia s troubled history of politics, narco trafficking and terrorism It also follows how Pablo Escobar went from being host to Politicians, industrialists, businesspeople, journalists at his Hacienda N poles to becom [...]

      This book joined me as I crossed cities and borders and, as books do, became an essential part of my cross continental journey to my new home in Colombia It tells of a dark hour in one of the darkest periods in Colombian history, and does so with the grace of an expert novelists The characters breathe with the rapid rhythm of anxiety, and the tension grows as though these events, as real as could possibly be, were imagined by some God of suspense I wasn t thrilled with the last section, only bec [...]

      Marquez is one of my favorite authors Although, the actual reason I read this particular book was that the Iranian opposition leader currently under house arrest Mir Hossein Mousavi , managed to send a message to his family, recommending this book in case people wanted to have a feel of what he is going through He has been under house arrest for than seven month now This book is different from other books by Marquez It is not a work of magic realism fiction, it is a report by a true journalist [...]

      La historia narrada en este libro est basada en los hechos que tuvieron lugar en Colombia en torno a la figura del narcotraficante Pablo Escobar durante la d cada de los noventa Por este motivo, se trata de una experiencia completamente diferente a la de leer Cien a os de soledad o Cr nica de una muerte anunciada Nos encontramos ante una novela period stica muy bien documentada con una gran carga pol tica y social A pesar de ello, en ning n momento se pierde de vista el estilo cuidado y detallis [...]

      Snooooooze Maybe it s in the wake of my trip to Colombia, where I thought I would be carried away by all things evoking Marquez, but I am honestly kind of questioning my slavish devotion to his greatness, lately When I first read them, I was totally enthralled by A Hundred Years of Solitude, Chronicle of a Death Foretold, and The Very Old Man With Enormous Wings, and at least liked Love In The Time of Cholera pretty well I was entirely annoyed by Memories of My Melancholy Whores for predictable [...]

    14. Sash Chiesa on said:

      This is something than a mere chronicling of one of the darkest periods of Colombian history, than an unflinching depiction of those horrific hours it s about the calamitous destinies of people entwined together in unimaginable ways which wouldn t unwind without permanently damaging one or the other part of their cruel existence, but importantly it s a work that recognizes the importance of apprehending the multitudinous nature of everything, the capricious pith of ultimate values, the immort [...]

      Almost not worth reviewing I was hoping for something a little compelling given that it s about kidnapping, the drug trade, and gov t corruption , but this read like a simple recitation of facts I couldn t connect with any of the characters and I found the descriptions scenes of what the victims experienced while in captivity tedious.I know that this was written for a Colombian audience so they have all the context and really just want the juicy tidbits, but I was hoping for a bit explanation [...]
