Praise

“Fascinating. . . . Possesses all the drama and emotional resonance of García Márquez’s most powerful fiction.” —The New York Times“Brilliant. . . . Deeply affecting. . . . A story rich in characters who are both heroic and contradictory.” —The Wall Street Journal“A potent mixture of the newshound’s well-documented detail and the novelist’s tragic vision.” —Chicago Tribune“A powerful story. . . . In a series of telling strokes, shifting subtly from one perspective to another, García Márquez conveys the madness of the hostages’ imprisonment, the despair, the anger, the false hope, the resignation.” —San Francisco Chronicle
