    1. 12/2 - Second 500+ page book in a row and, fortunately, second utilising short chapters to keep the reader reading. Short, sharp, snappy chapters created the constant internal refrain of 'just one more chapter, it's only another three pages', which is how I ended up reading till nearly four this morning in my determination to finish the last 180 pages in one final session.This was a fascinating story of child soldiers and the two sides of a war being fought for control of the remote villages of [...]


    2. Rusty Young, the author of the true crime book Marching Powder: A True Story of Friendship, Cocaine, and South America's Strangest Jail is back with this fantastic novel of revenge, betrayal and redemption.Young draws upon his real-life experiences in Colombia to weave together tragedy and triumph in this fact-meets-fiction novel of political violence and drug cartels, focusing on the use of children-soldiers as cannon-fodder, and where they end up. You really get involved with the characters, p [...]


    3. For those who love losing themselves in a big fat novel, Colombiano, is a good choice. The perfect holiday read, at times unbearably raw and shocking, but also thrilling and fast paced and well researched. Rusty Young knows his stuff. As the millions of fans of Marching Powder already know, Rusty tells a bloody good story. Colombiano is his passion project. His major work. This is the book his fans have been waiting for.


    4. An amazing story, hard to tell what was fiction and what part was real. Glad after reading it there was some sort of silver lining.


    5. From the beginning, Colombiano pulls you in and keeps you engrossed through events that are horrific, against a background which is complex and disturbing, with characters which are very believable – because all this madness really took place. Young Pedro, not yet sixteen, becomes an illegal paramilitary, a child soldier, after being forced to witness the execution of his innocent father during Colombia’s civil war. Seen through Pedro’s young eyes, the torture, killing and ruthlessness aro [...]


    6. Cocaine is a powerful currency and in Colombia it fuelled a vicious war between left and right terrorist cells with children at the front line. Rusty Young, author of the extraordinary book Marching Powder set within the walls of Bolvia's San Pedro Prison, spent almost eight years with Colombia's anti-kidnapping unit and Colombiano captures the stories of the child soldiers he met in this time. It's a work of fiction, but melds together the many very real stories he heard straight from the mouth [...]


    7. Wow What a bookOr should I say, not really pleased about it, it stopped me from sleeping for several night, reading it until i realised dawn was there.From the first page to the last I was deeply in the story. Rusty's first book was great. This one is sensational. When I first looked at the book, seeing it's thickness I doubted that I would read it until the last page, but it was so interesting that it was easy to read. You had not only a good story as in a good fiction book, but at the same tim [...]


    8. This is a book, I normally would have not picked up from the shelves if it wasn't for the recommendation from a person I completely trust with all recommendation, and boy am I glad I listened to her. With emotional and riveting writing Rusty Young blends fact and fiction into a heart-wrenching story of child soldiers fighting a four decade long war in Columbia. Knowing next to nothing about this subject, this book opened by eyes and showed me the true horrors of child soldiers, a subject I had o [...]


    9. At first the size of Colombiano was daunting but after reading the first few chapters I found myself engrossed in the story. The plot twists and turns had me anxiously turning the pages to see what was coming next. Although long, I never found it boring. I was sad the story wasn't longer when I did reach the end.Colombiano is a well written, easy read. I found it hard to distinguish between the fact and fiction as the story comes across as fact, as it is very well researched. I thoroughly enjoye [...]


    10. Loved Rusty's earlier book Marching Powder - Colombiano has exceeded any expectations I may have had when purchasing his latest epic. Fluent, captivating, brutal. Could not put this book down until the last chapter. A must-read!Di McKenzieInterior Designer Mosman NSW



    11. A very solid crime drama thriller set in Colombia. Great action, well plotted and decent characters, although Im probably in the minority where I found it all just a little cliched. The dialogue was pretty standard and the plot yes good, was predictable. I feel like he was better suited to his non fiction style writing and investigating. Not a bad book by any means just better in this genre and style. Winslow does it much better but then again he's much more experienced writer. The chapters were [...]


    12. This sucked me in from the first few pages. Raw, emotional and a fascinating insight into the sad reality of child soldiers and drug trafficking in Colombia. Don’t be put off by the size of this book, it’s an amazing story.


    13. What an incredible book! Well done Rusty on writing another amazing book. Written in fiction, Young is able to paint a picture of the life of a young Colombian seeking revenge on the unprecedented events that occur. Pedro, the young Colombian, is the perfect example of a normal child who enjoys fishing with his father, riding his bike, going to school and working on his fathers farm, however, his life is turned upside down. In addition, you become heavily emotionally invested in this book from t [...]


    14. I am a huge fan of Rusty Young's first book, 'Marching Powder' and have read it 3 or 4 times over the years. There was no question I was going to read his next book, although I was worried about how he would do on a fictional work (and also about the size - it's almost 700 pages). Well, I shouldn't have worried. 'Colombiano' is just as absorbing, though in a different way. Although Marching Powder was a one-off incredible true story, 'Colombiano' is also based on true events and I think it is mu [...]


    15. What was it like in Columbia when the drug wars were in full swing? This Australian journalist wrote a best selling non-fiction book, Marching Powder, about a famous and very different prison in Columbia and then took 10 years to write this fictional account based on the stories young men told his when he worked in Columbia. At the recent Melbourne Writers Festival he said writing fiction was much harder. That's why it took 10 years. It is a racing read about a young Autodefensas recruit who is [...]


    16. 5 Star plus. All I can say is Rusty Young didn’t disappoint. Marching Powder was one of My all time favourites and this matches.


    17. Written as fiction but based on extensive interviews with former child soldiers who fought in Colombia, Rusty Young's second book is an absorbing account of a 15 year-old boy's transition from careless teenager to a hardened warrior seeking revenge for his father's murder. His first book, 2003's 'Marching Powder', told the story of a British drug trafficker who spent years inside a Bolivian prison, and was a vivid evocation of a strange life behind bars. 'Colombiano' is a slow-burner told in nin [...]


    18. Engrossing, thrilling and ultimately uplifting read about a young man who sets out on a quest for 'justice' in Colombia. It was a very authentic depiction of how the civil war in Colombia affects a small group of teenagers, who are forced to grow up quickly and make adult decisions. The story is multi-faceted and includes some strong female characters and various subplots. It's partly about how the narrator, Pedro, tries to track down his father's killers one by one, but also about how his actio [...]


    19. I really enjoyed this book, the second of his that I have read. It was a very easy book to read, very long but when I was finished I still wanted more. Recommended read.


    20. "The easy writing style of Rusty Young follows on from his first book Marching Powder. The book has been well researched and the story comes through as being very authentic.He exhibits huge knowledge about child soldiers in Colombia and the story reflects the life of the central character, Pedro. He has clearly improved his writing skills in his second book.The use of Spanish words is at first daunting; but by Page 80 a reader gets used to it and rarely needs to refer to the bibliography of word [...]


    21. Colombiano is Young's second offering and tells the tale of child soldiers in Colombia. This story focuses around Pedro, whose life falls apart when his father is murdered by Guerrilla soldiers and he and is mother are denied access to their farm leaving them destitute. Angry and looking for revenge Pedro, with his best friend Palillo, join up with a paramilitary group in order to learn to become a killer and to avenge himself upon his fathers killers.Colombiano gives the reader a fascinating an [...]


    22. A great follow-up to Rusty Young's first book "Marching Powder". The plot is very well developed and intriguing and holds the reader's interest right to the end. Rusty Young's style of writing is free-flowing and makes it a very easy and enjoyable book to read with, on occasion, a high degree of mystery and brutality. In many ways it keeps the reader wanting to know what comes next in the twists and turns of the plot. It's a well-written book for which the writer should be congratulated and no d [...]


    23. I'm not one to usually read books about child soldiers in Columbia, but I loved Colobiano. This book is as long as War and Peace, but with Rusty Young's writing style, reading it was easy. The main character Pedro is very likeable and the story, whilst long, is really interesting and engaging. Despite the length, I didn't get bored at all. I absolutely loved Rusty's first book, Marching Powder, and his second didn't disappoint.


    24. It is a big book! Heavy but also has good sense of humour in it every now and then. The way it documented little Pedro’s psychological change was truely incredible. And a lot of facts were shocking. It reminds me of how lucky I am without seeing those events in person. If you read every day, it’s probably taking you a month to finish. But definitely one of those books you can’t miss in your life.


    25. Wow! I try to save 5 Stars for books I'll remember 15 years later as some of the best of the best.This us an epic story that transported me to another world. When I'm staying up too late reading multiple times per week and also not wanting it to end, these are both signs of a great book. The characters were flawed in a human way and you were there with them the whole way.


    26. This is my first book review, so please go easy on me! Great read. I'm a fan of Rusty Young's style of writing. I should read more often as I really enjoy it, so I was happy to find that I couldn't put this book down. Would like to know what parts are fiction and what parts are reality, but a great book all the same!


    27. Gracias - to the author Rusty Young for sharing insights of the suffering and barbaric cruelty that the Colombian people have had to endure and we hope that they will now finally get to enjoy centuries of Peace with the next generations to come


    28. Excelente libro después de Marching powder Colombiano es unos de mis favoritos libros súper interesante!! Un libro fácil de leer!!super recomendable!
