    Mysterious, Unnerving, simply a loving book.

    I have had the pleasure in having read this novel for a specialities lit class at a Florida university. It was a rapturous experience reading such a mysterious book that humanizes Che Guevara. The lyrical, sensual and often poetic prose symbolizes a rebellious within the writer against keeping Che only as a revolutionary figure. Through Menendez's rhetoric, we get to see Teresa's sexual obsessiveness towards her 'Ernesto' as a human, sweet, and wonderful lover. Truly disturbing to read, for it is haunting and quite insistant in proving its point.

    Champion voice performers Adriana Sananes and Eileen Stevens breathe life into this story of a love affair between a young artist, Theresa, and rebel Ernesto 'Che' Guevara. At times the narrative is softly emotional at other times fraught with danger; it is also an incomparable painting of revolutionary Cuba. Although she has been searching for a number of years a young Miami woman has not unearthed a clue about her birth mother whom she has never seen nor heard about. One day an unexpected package arrives containing pages of writing and photographs. Slowly these items are pieced together to reveal the life of her mother and the youthful affair she had with 'Che' Guevara. Related in two distinct voices 'Loving Che' is poetic, passionate, and poignant - an altogether irresistible listening experience.

    I read this book in one day and found it interesting to be able to give a glimps at what Ernesto 'Che' Guevara may have actually been like and simply reading about him and his guerrilla tactics. I applaud the sections in the book where the reader is taken back to Cuba and found my self nostalgic to someone that beared resemblence to the descriptions in these sections. I feel that the ending could have been developed a little bit more and was left to question somethings; however, the book did what it was supposed to do because I also found myself loving Che.
