It's an interesting book because it is full of first hand data. Nonetheless, as it doesn't introduce the reader to certain names and to the different parties involved in this historic passage, it tends to get difficult to follow. In addition, sometimes it gets tedious and boring.

If you could sum up Ten Days That Shook the World in three words, what would they be?
Expertly written giving a real feel for what it was like to live through those dramatic days. Details the politics of the different forces, political trends and figures involved through Extracts from their actual interventions into events and meetings of the soviets, Duma etc and the demands they put forward at key moments rather than lots of side commentary. Reed is however unapologetically sympathetic to the aims of the workers, peasants and revolutionaries, so many of the official historians of the revolution claim to be objective but are deeply hostile.
Any additional comments?
The narration and overall production are of a very high standard.

An amazing description of one of the most significant events of the 20th century. An event whose ramifications and unintended consequences are still being felt today.
