    1. Yasmin on said:

      Well for those of us whose Spanish is not very good or have any at all it would have been nice if the two poems of his had been also translated into English Be that as it may this is an extraordinary book by a remarkable man However, it is rather curious that in his diary really a journal he doesn t always put much importance to certain people and his relationship with them, I m primarily thinking Hilda Gadea It s quite a mystery as to why he married her at all Unless by an odd obligation to mar [...]

    2. Helmisade on said:

      I actually enjoyed this than Motorcycle Diaries In this book we see young Ernesto making the decision that he really wants to dedicate his life to the revolution, even if it means death.He isn t just looking for adventure any, he s looking for meaning and purpose the chance to make a difference in his beloved South America I think there s a lot here that anyone can identify with, regardless of how you feel about communism.I wish the book had included a short history of Latin America or at least [...]

    3. Karen on said:

      This book wasn t as engaging as Guevara s first journey across Latin America, but this second trip is a glimpse into his interest in politics There were times in this where I felt that a lot was missing, that I was walking into the middle of a conversation Latin American Diaries takes place between 1953 and 1956 Guevara is present during a military take over in Guatemala, meets Fidel Castro in Mexico City in 1955, and spends a lot of time reading up on Marx and Engel By the end of the book, it i [...]

    4. Pooja Agarwal on said:

      Reading this book is like taking the Journey with CheHis transformation from a young, carefree wanderer to the revolutionary is so evident through his writings How his surroundings influenced him, the person that he was when he left home at times you don t like him but his honesty is so evident His thirst for knowledge is inspiring, I may not completely agree with his ideology, but just can t deny the life that he lived He lived for what he believed in and justified it by his actions.

    5. Lennon on said:

      Lennon s Book Collection Review Not the hardcore Che you ll expect but his travels before he became a revolutionary The young Che immersing himself to the Latin American culture These travels will eventually strengthen his revolutionary insights backontheroad

    6. James Barker on said:

      This was quite an infuriating collection it does not have the clarity of The Motorcycle Diaries, principally because this was not edited by Guevara the way his earlier diaries were although I notice his wife edited out sexually explicit passages Entries are lumped together without differentiation, dates are not used to give sense of the time involved and, all in all, it is principally of interest because of who Che was to become None the less, if you are fascinated by Guevara and his ideology it [...]

    7. Baratang on said:

      The book is a chronological narrative on Che s travels through Latin America, and written in simple English.I believe readers remained glued to the book because of the Deity Che became through this exploration If it was an ordinary man s story, it wouldn t make much impact.I bought the book in Cuba while on a work related visit, and was amazed about his post humus presence in the that country He is integral to their proud revolutionary struggles It was interesting how he classified his acquainta [...]

    8. Arjun Chandrasekhar on said:

      Back on the Road is a personal text of Ernesto Che Guevara s long journey through the American continent in his simmering surge to explore America The descriptions rich with the spirit of youth gives the reader a clear image of a young Argentine doctor s gradual development in to a full revolutionary icon.The text contains numerous letters to his mother soaked with love and affection describing to her even the tiny details of their journey from the way Che Guevara writes it the reader is able to [...]

    9. NK on said:

      I was not digging this book at all I thought I would but I actually didn t which was pretty surprising to me I mean it s Che, I am supposed to be into it, right Well I think I am now confused as to what exactly he did how it all came about I mean he was a doctor who helped people in a variety of ways in different countries but he was also buds w Fidel exiled from his homeland I don t understand how this book was done either There were stories letters from him but then the timeline seems a bit o [...]

    10. Scott on said:

      I really wanted Motorcycle Diaries but the local library branch only carried its sequel As a narrative, it reads or less like a series of notes that Guevara left so he could remember who he met and where and when he did it As such, it s a very skeletal read It would be completely unreadable if it weren t for letters that were woven into the narrative that contain of his thoughts and observations Since I wanted to read this narrative or the first travel narrative primarily for the observations, [...]

    11. Robert Stout on said:

      Che Guevara s second trip from Argentina through South America to Mexico lacks the dynamism of The Motorcycle Diaries It seems not to have been written for publication and though it provides a clear picture of the young author doctor and his interests it often is mundane in its reportage The translati0n is inadequate and makes Guevara seem like a rather ingenuous American tourist rather than a politically motivated Argentinian Nevertheless it gives insights into the personality of the man who wo [...]

    12. Marc on said:

      Not as interesting as the motorcycle diaries Che is clearly radical at this point and has chosen his path to be a communist The book is a little dissappointing, since we do not learn much new about Che Like stated above, he is dedicated to comunism and is prepared to take a stand, but we get little hint when and where this development accelerated I m further pretty poitive that this is not complete, since the biography written by Anderson quotes parts of this diary, that are not even included [...]

    13. Mary on said:

      Although this book touts itself as the sequel to The Motorcycle Diaries, it s pretty different from its precursor Instead of mischief exemplified in Che s first trip around South America, his second trip, into Central America, is very politically oriented While giving a great insight to Che s experiences that aid his political evolution it can be a dry read compared to The Motorcycle Diaries Probably best recommended for readers specifically interested in Che s personal journey, instead of thos [...]

    14. Tim Weakley on said:

      I m reminded of the Monty Python skit The Poet McTeagle in which the poet writes constantly about how strapped he is for cash What s twenty quid to the bloody Midland Bank A fair amount of Guevara s journals concern his constant striving to pay for his room and board, and his many failed attempts at employment It was interesting enough, but mostly a stage setting for the Cuban revolution to come.

    15. Kriegslok on said:

      Reads as the not intended for publication jottings, musings and aid memoires of a young man finding his feet and exploring hisworld and none the worse for that and the honesty it offers as such Che s literary talent is apparant in his letters and journalistic articles some of which also appear in this slim volume.

    16. Kim on said:

      Memoirs diaries, letters by Che Guevara,the pre revolutionary man s adventures and trials as he traveled and worked in Central and South America in the 1950 s I most enjoyed his descriptions of the indigenous peoples ruins he explored alone the way And it is appears Guevara and I have something in common a strong attraction to Machu Picchu

    17. Abe on said:

      Ernesto Che Guevara de la Serna s diary of his second trip through Latin America Unlike the first diary, Guevara travels through Central America, where he witnesses the fall of Jacobo Arbenz Guzm n, and his movements in M xico I read both Spanish and English versions Read the Spanish version if you can as somethings are lost in the translation.

    18. Jose on said:

      Is a remarkable book to read It s could be considered travel book for the travel of che and no diaries , his description of the places that he visited , and his analysis making this book an extraordinary reading,

    19. Jbondandrews on said:

      I really found Che s second diary to be very interesting He had further matured in his views and I enjoyed the letters he wrote to his parents I find his family to be almost as intriguing as Ernesto was.

    20. Jeanette on said:

      I like that Che has a clearer picture of himself, yet still out to find himself, in this book I think he had some great ideals at this time and truly wanted to help people I really want to find out what happened to change his motives.

    21. Juan on said:

      A mishmash of Che Guevara s personal journal entries, which were heavily edited, and letters to his mother and friend There are few passages that are noteworthy, on Arbenz and Guatemala, and Peronism, but it is a book where much of the information is filtered.

    22. Eric on said:

      never ever i couldn t get why they want to make an idol of this womwn seeker now you can see his pidtures on corsetshe was just a doll for her bosses

    23. Menna on said:

      So I ve finished this wonderful book Such beautiful intimate look at the lovely energetic Dr.Ernesto in his search for Che

    24. Dave on said:

      3 and 1 2 really At times smacked of that boring revolutionary at a party We all know that guy From the Guatemala overthrow on it is a solid 4 rating before that a 3 is generous.

    25. Jonathan on said:

      The second journey which interested me to study, where he is going to meet Fidel finding himself who he is and what he need to do He found Fidel s ideologies matching his own.
