Boudin is a pretty good writer and this book went faster than I expected. From the description I read of the book before picking it up, I thought it would be a more personal account -- although the whole thing is indeed personal, it's very heavy on the politics. This book will probably fascinate those already interested in human rights politics in Latin America, and maybe bore those who were looking for more of a travel story. I expect Boudin will continue writing through out his life, and it will probably improve -- this is a good start.
