Absolute good buy

I was concerned about the quality of the paper and print of the book, since it is priced only ~200. But the book, now in my hand amazes me, very good quality of print. Additionally the photos of the expedition is given in the mid-section of the book, which is quite fascinating. This book is lucid and filled with expressions and emotions. The description of the places and the people are vivid and each character has a distinct spotlight, which is optimum and refreshing.

What a Journey!

Che's 'Motorcycle diaries' , a collection of notes he had written during his Journey through his country , clearly illustrates the coming of age of a man. The man who would later go on to lead a revolution in a foreign country was born through these pages, these experiences. A must read if you want to know the story of the Argentinian medical student , 'Ernesto Guevara' turning into the Cuban revolutionary 'Che'!
