  The book of the popular movie STARRING GAEL GARCIA BERNAL NOW A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER   The young Che Guevara’s lively and highly entertaining travel diary, now a popular movie and a New York Times bestseller. This new, expanded edition features exclusive, unpublished photos taken by the 23-year-old Ernesto on his journey across a continent, and a tender preface by Aleida Guevara, offering an insightful perspective on the man and the icon.   “A journey, a number of journeys. Ernesto Guevara in search of adventure, Ernesto Guevara in search of America, Ernesto Guevara in search of Che. On this journey of journeys, solitude found solidarity, ‘I’ turned into ‘we’.” —Eduardo Galeano   “When I read these notes for the first time, I was quite young myself and I immediately identified with this man who narrated his adventures in such a spontaneous manner… To tell you the truth, the more I read, the more I was in love with the boy my father had been…” —Aleida Guevara   “Our film is about a young man, Che, falling in love with a continent and finding his place in it.” —Walter Salles, director of “The Motorcycle Diaries.”  “As his journey progresses, Guevara’s voice seems to deepen, to darken, colored by what he witnesses in his travels. He is still poetic, but now he comments on what he sees, though still poetically, with a new awareness of the social and political ramifications of what’s going on around him.”—January Magazine     Also available in Spanish: DIARIOS DE MOTOCICLETA (978-1-920888-11-4)   Features of this edition include:   Published in association with the Che Guevara Studies Center, Havana

2.0 Diarios de Motocicleta by Ernesto Guevara
I started this book when I was 17 but I never finished it. I remember that, at the time, I really liked it. Now, with 25 years I finished it and, it might be for personal growing or life itself that I did not found it so interesting anymore. It's just another diary, interesting but not as much as ...

2.0 The Motorcycle Diaries: Notes on a Latin American Journey
2.5 StarsNothing groundbreaking in this short read. I was interested in reading this after my visit to Cuba. Ernesto "Che" Guevara was, if nothing else, an interting and complex person. In reading the novel you follow a young Che on a trip through Latin America before he graduates Medical School ...

4.0 The Motorcycle Diaries (Movie Tie-in Edition) : Notes on a Latin American Journey
This is the fist of the diaries that Che Guevara wrote when he first set of on a journey around South America. It starts as two lads having a bit of a laugh on a motorbike, and as het meets more people he starts to seethe with the injustice that they suffer.Well written and well translated.

This makes me feel old, but in a good way. I don't want to be carousing about drunk on stolen wine, ill, with no money, pitching off my broke-down motorcycle over and over, misrepresenting my credentials and trying to score with cute women. I mean, it sounds good on paper, but I've made different ch...

4.0 The Motorcycle Diaries: Notes on a Latin American Journey
One of my biggest complaints about modern US civics education (where it appears to exist at all) is the short shrift given to certain historical figures. All most of us ever learn about Ernesto Guevara is that he was a revolutionary, assassinated by the CIA, and that revolutionaries are "bad." (Ne...
