Publisher's Summary

The popular television series Narcos captures only half the truth. Here, at last, is the full story.
Until now, we believed that everything had been said about the rise and fall of Pablo Escobar, the most infamous drug kingpin of all time. But these versions have always been told from the outside, never from the intimacy of his own home.
More than two decades after the full-fledged manhunt finally caught up with the king of cocaine, Juan Pablo Escobar travels to the past to reveal an unabridged version of his father - a man capable of committing the most extreme acts of cruelty while simultaneously professing infinite love for his family.
This is not the story of a child seeking redemption for his father but a shocking look at the consequences of violence and the overwhelming need for peace and forgiveness.

Netflix wished they had this..

An amazing story of terror and heartache. To feel his words and feel it through his perspective shows how great the author poured into the book. Oddly inspiring too.

A bit of a drag

If you could sum up Pablo Escobar: My Father in three words, what would they be?

Second hand antidotes on a drug lord


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It would have to be some of the untold stories known only to family members


What aspect of Luis Moreno’s performance would you have changed?

He was fine


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really


Any additional comments?

The story jumps a lot back and fourth and really seems to be an apology for his father at times and a correction of morales that others have made.
It's all a bit boring really.
