Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A heart-thumping novel.” Marie Claire
“Colombiano deals with timeless themes the self-perpetuating nature of hatred, the relentless cycles of violence and victimhood, and explores how they have fueled decades of relentless civil war in Colombia…Powerful stuff.” The Australian
“[An] exceptional audiobook. Narrated primarily by Brian J. Ramos, with an assist from author Rusty Young, the novel focuses on 16-year old Pedro Gutiérrez…Ramos’s tone and pace enhance Young’s precise descriptions and dialogue, increasing the power of the story, particularly its powerful ending.
