  • Che Guevara: A Revolutionary Life

    • UNABRIDGED (36 hrs and 48 mins)

    (190)

    Che Guevara was a dashing rebel whose epic dream was to end poverty and injustice in Latin America and the developing world through armed revolution. Jon Lee Anderson traces Che's extraordinary life from his comfortable Argentine upbringing to the battlefields of the Cuban revolution, from the halls of power in Castro's government to his failed campaign in the Congo and his assassination in the Bolivian jungle.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed this book. The storyline is very interesting, though it was a little difficult to keep the characters straight when the narrator is talking about Che's parents and grandparents.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Che Guevara?

    The early years of Che on his motorcycle and the scams he pulls in the towns he visits.


    Did Armando Durán do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    He has a pleasant voice but often mispronounces words, which is annoying since he seems to be a Spanish speaker.

    When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play in his small Bavarian town. When more children disappear and an orphan is found dead with the same mark, the mounting hysteria threatens to erupt. Before the unrest forces him to torture and execute the woman who aided in the birth of his children, Jakob must unravel the truth.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I tried to listen to this book but the narration was so awful I had to stop. I will read the book, but am returning the audiobook portion.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Grover Gardner’s performances?

    No.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes.
