Overview

De Pablo Escobar, el famoso narcotraficante colombiano, hemos oído hablar miles de veces por su infinita capacidad para ejercer el mal, que llevó a organismos como la DEA a calificarlo como uno de los más grandes criminales de la historia. Sin embargo, poco se habla de sus orígenes familiares y sociales, de sus dimensiones humanas y de la manera como su personalidad fue evolucionando hasta llegar al desbordamiento. Alonso Salazar J. se sumergió en archivos y buscó testimonios inéditos de familiares y vecinos, de amigos y enemigos, para entrelazar en un intenso relato, sin maniqueísmo, versiones diversas y contradictorias que al final construyen un retrato más completo del personaje.

Así, a lo largo de esta historia, Escobar aparece a veces como un guerrero que despertó la admiración de sectores excluidos que lo consideraron un héroe, y otras, como un villano que hizo de la muerte un negocio, y luego la amplió, con el terror indiscriminado, para someter al Estado y a la sociedad. Aquí se presentan dimensiones íntimas, cuadros complejos y humanos, de un hombre que buscaba desesperadamente identidad y reconocimiento, y que amó a su esposa y a sus hijos hasta perder la vida por ellos. También encontramos una radiografía donde Escobar deja de ser un personaje brotado de la nada para convertirse en producto, por un lado, de una sociedad, como la colombiana, plagada de conflictos históricos y, por otro, del gran negocio del final del siglo XX: el tráfico de cocaína.

    Me encantó!

    Me pareció mejor que lo que voy viendo de la telenovela, está tan bien escrita y tiene datos realmente ineditos.
