5.0 out of 5 stars I stopped and bought a book, 23 Sept. 2010
This review is from: My Life (Paperback)
I was wandering around a bookshop and this book caught my eye, it was so different to the 'easy reads' I'd been going for and the cover just got to me. I'm not sure how much I knew about Castro before the book, he took power in Cuba 4 years before I was born, but what I have learned makes me want to learn more, not just about what happened in Cuba but about what was happening all over the world during his era. It's an absolutely transfixing book, he''s so intense and his attention to detail so sharp that you keep wanting to read pages again to make sure you took it all in. His memories of Che appear throughout the book like postcards to a long lost friend, totally moving yet overwhelming because of the nature of the risks they took together and the way they cheated death. I've found the book truly inspiring, not because I want to be a communist revolutionary but because I want to believe in something so much that I would put my life on the line! Viva Fidel!
