Cuba libre Spanish edition Cómo una banda de guerrilleros autoentrenados derrocó a un dictador y cambió la historia del mundo Este libro describe cómo un grupo de revolucionarios muchos de ellos jóvenes privilegiados recién egresados de la universidad especializados en literatura y jóvenes abogados se transformaron en guerrilleros de la selva y derrotaron a 50000 soldados profesionalmente entrenados y euipados para derrocar al dictador Fulgencio Batista apoyado por Estados Unidos Prior to listening to this book all I knew of Fidel was the he was a communist That’s really it I had little knowledge of Cuba as a country and certainly not anywhere near enough information about the revolution to have any particular opinions Although being raised in the US I’ve only ever heard Cuba and Fidel being discussed with negative connotations Cuba Libre has opened my mind and done away with my ignorance It’s a wild adventure from start to finish and extremely informative It is also well researched well written and SO hard to put down The author inserts his own bias throughout but it did not spoil my love for this book as I find myself in agreement with him anyway Fidel will always be a controversial figure and for legitimate reasons but since reading this and doing research on my own as this book is about the revolution specifically and not about Fidel’s time as leader of Cuba I needed to do some extra reading I realize he’s not uite the supervillain my country made him out to be I’m not saying he’s an angel or some great leader nor am I making light of his suppressive regime but I think it’s important to acknowledge than one side of a storyMy only reason for four star instead of five has nothing to do with content and purely for the fact that I found the narrator to be boring at times for such an exciting book Overall it's a good summary The author attempts to channel 1950s Cuba and for the most part succeeds There is nothing new here for veteran Cuba buffs The book's chief claim is to introduce the Cuba Story to Gen Xers who haven't heard anything beyond the usual mass media disinformation and written in a style accessible to them My chief criticism is its Fidel centricity There was to the Revolution than los comandantes barbudos de la Sierra though indeed there would have been no Revolution at all without themFor those seeking an introduction to the topic travel writer Tony Perrottet has made a credible addition I knew nothing about the Cuban Revolution and Perrottet made it such a beautifully romantic endeavor about students with an ideal Great read and it almost felt like short stories or essays Very easy to be enraptured in each tale This was a great book Highly recommend I wanted to read because i am trying to bone up on my handsome husband's cultural history The book reads like a suspense novel than a history work The successful revolutiion of Castro and his band of followers defied all odds The reader still has little understanding of Fidel Castro as an individual which obviously the author had kittle knowledgePicking up the book I had zero knowledge of the Castro revolution None really of Che Guevara other than t shirts The author's style is a bit of hero worshiiper but still an entertaining read Here is the breathtaking world shaking story of how a band of dreamers ousted a corrupt venal malignant despot This is a fast paced entertaining and authoritative account replete with larger than life characters some heroic others not so much Read at bookmanreaderblogspotcom A terrific piece of storytelling reveals a fascinating bit of history The book which is written with the grace and fluidity of a novel shines a light onto the characters and events that changed Cuba forever What an enjoyable book Each character is well drawn and by the end of the book I felt like I knew about 1959 Che Fidel and this important and improbable revolution that changed Cuba and the world forever I give very few 5 star reviews but I found this book so exceptionally chronicled while still reading like a non stop and breathtaking fictional account I had traveled to Cuba in January and was keen on gaining insight into the Cuban Revolution and its lead characters Growing up in Florida I wish I had known years before about this gallant improbable struggle and I have an entirely different perspective on what transpired there Wonderful book This is an extensively researched well written account of the Cuban Revolution and the overthrow of Batista It is well written reading like a novel than non fiction All of the main revolutionary characters are here as well as cameo appearances by some surprising individuals The roll of the US meddling in and attempts to control not only Cuba but other Latin American countries as well is also presented I’m not a big fan of non fiction but I really liked this book and would highly recommend it It’s an incredible story
