Castro's Last Mojito: A Novel of the Next Cuban Revolution Paperback – August 27, 2016
Carsten Stroud, New York Times Best-selling Author of Niceville
I Loved This Book...This book is not only a powerful read, it's also a perfect shot to the side of the head for all those blissfully unaware folks who go off to Cuba every year for some sun and surf and come back chirping about "how happy and smiley all those Cubans are!" This guy knows Cuba the way Hemingway knew it. Compelling and raw and gutsy.
D. Spilman: I finished the book in a frenzy - very nice read - the website is even better. What a great way to sustain topical interest. A tight and twisting plot......with the action kind of like a roller coaster ride......peppered with historical references; people, places, events, well lubricated with rum and Cohiba-smoking and that irrepressible vitality that endears Cuba and it's people to our imagination and hearts long after any economic relevance........for me on a par with the lure of Tango and Buenos Aires. Plays nicely with other books I've read about Cuba; notably "Cuba and the Night" and "Havana Nocturne."
Andrea Whyte: This is not really my usual type of book but I must say I did enjoy it. It's more actiony and man things than I usually read, but it was a good quick read. I liked the descriptions of places and people in Cuba. I can recommend this.
El Rajo: An excellent read. A real time insight into modern day Cuba. Only the canucks go to Cuba for vacation and this author has for sure spent some time there. Good description of the culture, music, food, dance, politics, women, night life and rum. Also a sad commentary on the deterioration of this once beautiful island. A good suspense novel with a super twist at the end.
Z. Mark: If you are interested in Cuba and like a good mystery then this book is for you. I read it in one sitting and thoroughly enjoyed it. Mr. French has managed to inject important history lessons without making them burdensome, as well as educating those of us from the US on some interesting points from our friendly neighbor to the North: Canada! (anyone who has attended public school will get the reference!) It is clear the author has a love for Cuba and the Cuban people! The plot is interesting and the story flows....do get this book. A fun read!
John A. Peterson: Just a great book for summer reading and anytime, held my interest throughout. I would recommend this book to everyone that has an interest in Cuba Part true and part fiction, A well written book.--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
