Hippos and drugs
4 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

From one beast to another, Pablo's Hippos is a satirical look at thirty years of Colombia's bloody and painful history seen from the semi-submerged viewpoint of a Hippopotamus! A tale of a ferocious, irresistible, territorial animal, Pablo Escobar, and the depths to which he and his bloat were prepared to plunge for him to become the undisputed Alpha male in the most ruthless business in the world, the cocaine trade.

Pablo's Hippos is told by Pablo, the Alfa male of three hippopotami shipped to the country home and nerve center of Escobar's drugs empire in 1980. As the most powerful beast in Escobar's private zoo it is a story of unthinkable riches, unabated sex, political intrigue, death, destruction, corruption, treachery and the ultimate legacy of a life dedicated to crime – a hippo epidemic that nobody can stop. It would be burlesque if it weren't completely TRUE!
