5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC READING!
Once you begin reading this book you simply can't stop. It's one of the most amazing love stories I've ever read, full of suspense, drama and passion. Reading Vallejo's book is much better than watching all those ugly and elementary documentaries on Escobar's life. This unique memoir is a lesson in Colombian contemporary history of violence and corruption.

2.0 out of 5 stars Vallejo loves herself too much!
After reading "killing Pablo" I decided to read this book to have a better picture about the man behind the drug dealer. This book is very easy to read and it does give an insight into Escobar's personality but I found the arrogance, shallowness and materialistic way of thinking of the author - a simply rich men-eater - too hard to stand.

Una vez que empiezas a leer este libro, no puedes despegarte. Es una de las historias de amor más extraordinarias que he leído, llena de suspenso, drama y pasión. El libro de Vallejo es mejor que todos esos documentales feos y elementales sobre la vida de Escobar. Esta narración es una exquisita lección de historia sobre la corrupción del poder y la violencia en Colombia.

After reading "killing Pablo" I decided to read this book to have a better picture about the man behind the drug dealer. This book is very easy to read and it does give an insight into Escobar's personality but I found the arrogance, shallowness and materialistic way of thinking of the author - a simply rich men-eater - too hard to stand. She always finds the chance to tell the world how amazing she is and how much money she spends when, let's face it, we're interested about Escobar, not about her!
I wouldn't recommend it.
