From Publishers Weekly
A freewheeling account of an extended youthful road trip undertaken in the early '50s by the future poster boy of Communist insurrection.
Copyright 1996 Reed Business Information, Inc.
Full of high drama and comedy, The Motorcycle Diaries is the story of a remarkable road journey in the words of a 23-year-old medical student known as "Che". There are fights, parties, and serious drinking. There are also moving examples of Guevara's idealism and solidarity with the oppressed, in this vivid record of what for others would have been the adventure of a lifetime. No biographical study or understanding of Che Guevara is complete without the reading of his diaries recording his thoughts as he journeyed around South America. -- Midwest Book Review

Guevara writes in simple, but elegant prose. He does a good job describing small details of the people he encounters that give the reader a greater understanding of their culture. One can understand the why of Guevara's later beliefs.
For me this was an enjoyable and interesting short read.
