Rate this:
The definitive history of the drug cartels, Narcoland takes readers to the front lines of the war on drugs, which has so far cost more than 60,000 lives in just six years. Hernández explains in riveting detail how Mexico became a base for the mega-cartels of Latin America and one of the most violent places on the planet. At every turn, Hernández names names—not just the narcos, but also the politicians, functionaries, judges and entrepreneurs who have collaborated with them. In doing so, she reveals the mind-boggling depth of corruption in Mexico’s government and business elite.

Important, complicated topic. Complicated, unreadable(imo)book Helpful glossary and list of characters. Naming conventions make it almost impossible to keep track of characters. Translation (esp of dialogue) seems awkward. Story line is repetitive and crowded with too many minor characters. I WILL read this book if it kills me. It will just take multiple check outs. Maybe the 3rd chapter will be better.
