I was disappointed in this book because it is called a memoir, but it isn't really. It is a collection of speeches about Che given by Fidel Castro. It is repetitious, and the speeches are meant to honour Che whereas a memoir might be more nuanced and provide more context. Still, I was able to learn a bit about Che which is what I wanted to accomplish. ( )

This was "written" by Castro in that it is a collection of speeches and interviews that he has given over the years on the subject of Che Guevera. Still, it is fascinating to be provided with insight from Fidel Castro himself, even if it is provided through rose-coloured glasses. ( )
