Kurzbeschreibung

17. November 1996
In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on an ancient Norton motorbike. The journey lasted six months and took them thousands of miles, all the way from Argentina to Venezuela. En route, there was disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy, fights, parties and a lot of serious drinking. They met an extraordinary range of people: native indians and copper miners, lepers, police, wanderers and tourists. They became stowaways, firemen and football coaches, and joined in a strike. They sometimes fell in love, and frequently fell off the motorbike. Both of them kept diaries. One of them was a tall and good-looking medical student called Ernest Guevara de la Serna. Using the standard Argentinean nickname, others would sometimes refer to the two companions as Big Che and Little Che. In Ernesto‘s case, the nickname stuck. Within a decade the whole world would know Che Guevara. This is the story of that remarkable journey, eight years before the Cuban Revolution, in Che‘s own words, and illustrated with contemporary photographs. For Che, it was a formative experience, and amidst the humour and pathos of the tale, there are examples of his idealism and his solidarity with the poor and the oppressed. But it is far from being the diary of a militant, and sometimes very far from being “political correct,” which may be the reason that the manuscript has only been made available now, a quarter century after Che‘s death in the Bolivian jungle. Instead, it is a record kept by an exuberant, intelligent and observant 23-year-old, describing what might have been the adventure of a lifetime—had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure.

For every comic escapade of the carefree roustabout there is an equally eye-opening moment in the development of the future revolutionary leader. By the end of the journey, a politicized Guevara has emerged to predict his own legendary future.

Synopsis

In January 1952, two young men from Buenos Aires set out to explore South America on an ancient Norton motorbike. The journey lasted six months and took them thousands of miles, all the way from Argentina to Venezuela. En route, there was disasters and discoveries, high drama, low comedy, fights, parties and a lot of serious drinking. They met an extraordinary range of people: native indians and copper miners, lepers, police, wanderers and tourists. They became stowaways, firemen and football coaches, and joined in a strike. They sometimes fell in love, and frequently fell off the motorbike. Both of them kept diaries. One of them was a tall and good-looking medical student called Ernest Guevara de la Serna. Using the standard Argentinean nickname, others would sometimes refer to the two companions as Big Che and Little Che. In Ernesto's case, the nickname stuck. Within a decade the whole world would know Che Guevara. This is the story of that remarkable journey, eight years before the Cuban Revolution, in Che's own words, and illustrated with contemporary photographs.

For Che, it was a formative experience, and amidst the humour and pathos of the tale, there are examples of his idealism and his solidarity with the poor and the oppressed. But it is far from being the diary of a militant, and sometimes very far from being "political correct", which may be the reason that the manuscript has only been made available now, a quarter century after Che's death in the Bolivian jungle. Instead, it is a record kept by an exuberant, intelligent and observant 23-year-old, describing what might have been the adventure of a lifetime - had his lifetime not turned into a much greater adventure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Puppy Love 10. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
There's an honesty in this book that's not seen much lately. And that alone makes this book great. There's a scene where Che and his buddy feel like they are really roughing it, sleeping in a run down shed in the middle of nowhere when they are awoken by scary scratching sounds. They think its a jaguar and they shoot it. Instead they have killed the landowners little puppy. How many travel writers these days would even admit to that?
Che's travels are rarely specatacular, and that's refreshing. Still, as do most of my favorite travel authors, his goals are never to see waterfalls or ruins; he is on an adventure of people. For him this involves booze, dancing and women but that's okay...there's something real here and that's what's really enchanting. Although, it is painfully obvious that he becomes a leper expert for the most part because they offer him free food and lodging on his travels (a sort of leper run holiday inn), his dealings and soccer games with them are charming as all hell.
Che is shady and admits to it. I love it. Even without his later fame, I would have loved the book. But getting a peak at Che Guevara as a raucous young man brings this book up to five stars. Check it out.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Motorcycle Diaries: A Journey Around South America 8. Dezember 1999
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
While the topic of Che Guevera's South American travels is worthwhile, the title is a bit misleading. Guevera and his traveling companion abandon their motorcycle, "La Ponderosa II" before they're a quarter way through their trip. Thus, from the perspective of an adventure motorcycle journey log, it disappoints. However, from the perspective of learning more about the development of Che's socialist philosophy, it's most valuable. Guevera well documents some of the incidents during this trip that help fuel his allegiance with the prolitariat. Written in a narrative form, this is not a day-by-day, hour-by-hour dry account of Che's journey. Rather, it appears that upon returning to Argentina, he reviewed his diary notes and distilled them into narrative prose. All in all, it was a worthwhile, if quick, read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Guevara Pops a Wheelie 18. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
It is a little deceptive to refer to this book as "The Motorcycle Diaries" because the motorcycle ( a 500cc Norton) is featured in less that half of the book. However it is an excellent record of Guevara's travels around South America with his friend and colleague Dr. Alberto. If you don't share Guevara's political viewpoint you'll still find the book enjoyable. It is also well written, at times lyrical . It made me wish I read Spanish better because I imagine it is even more descriptive in the original language.Finally, from a historical perspective you can see the beginnings of Che's evolution into flaming Communism. This paleo-conservative gives the book 4 stars and a high recommendation, even if you've never ridden a motorcycle.

although this book was edited by che some time after returning from south america, he acknowledges this at the beginning of the book by saying, "the person who wrote these notes died the day he stepped back on argentine soil. the person who is reorganizing and polishing them, me, is no longer me, at least i'm not the me i was." and in the next paragraph, commenting on how people might interpret his words he states, "i present a nocturnal picture, you have to take it or leave it, it's not important. unless you know the landscape my diary photographed you've no option but to accept my version." it doesn't get much more simple than that. take me or leave me, i don't care.
i read the pages of "the motorcyle diaries," and was completely blown away! i wanted to be right there on la poderosa with che and his amigo, alberto - drinking at all the dives; conversing with the people; playing soccer with whatever team, in whatever town/country they happened to be; scamming places to eat and sleep, and making their way across the continent on the back de la poderosa until, bless her little hot-rod heart, she literally came apart. then, it was hitching, stowing away on boats, and, finally, floating downriver atop a not-so-navigable homemade raft, the whole while surrounded by the mystery and beauty of wild and mountainous south america. it was an awesome adventure to share! che's writing style is so conversational, and his wit will run up on you like a hairpin turn. i laughed out loud so many times. might i suggest you get a map of south america before turning the cover of this fantastic, freaking adventure. believe me, you'll get so wrapped up in it that you'll want to pinpoint each madcap pitstop. en fin, this is a tale of a grand adventure, of determination, willpower, curiousity, and guts. a great first read of the che. he was a believer in the underdog. sin duda.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A humourous moving adventure, embellished with time 8. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I found this book entertaining and interesting yet I could not help wondering how much of it WAS written by the 22 year old Ernesto and how much of it was written by the older "Che" in Cuba. I felt that too much was added in hindsight for the book to truly work. It felt like I was being presented with an "On The Road" copy mixed with why a young medical student became a great revolutionary.... and don't get me wrong, I admire Che enormously. I feel the book should not be taken as a great work of literature or philosophy. The only importance this book holds is that it was written by a great man whose memory will live on a lot longer than the memory of "The Motorcycle Diaries". Not everything a great person does is great, sometimes the things they do can be, in this case, just ok.
