    The people of Cuba struggled against immense odds to emerge victorious from years of brutal dictatorship and poverty in 1959. This is Che Guevara's classic eyewitness account of the transformation of a country and also the transformation of Che himself - from a troop doctor to a revolutionary leader, who would become one of the greatest icons of the 20th century.

    Ibis says: "a great account straight from the source"

    Where does Reminiscences of the Cuban Revolutionary War rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the better books I have come across on audible so far, along the same genre.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They were all great historical characters.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was a joke. A white guy performing in a condescending fake Spanish accent. I suppose it was his idea of trying to bring a bit of authenticity to the piece, but anyone who knows anything about latin america knows that Spain is in Europe and furthermore anyone who knows anything about che knows that he was Argentinian. So the accent was no where near an Argentinian accent. Anyhee, if you can force yourself to suspend disbelief then you can get through it. But the accent was really freaking cartoonish and a bit offensive. He also butchered and mispronounced so many of the names it was hard sometimes to listen with a straight face.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm fine with the current one.
