Publisher's Summary

Ten Days That Shook the World is John Reed's eyewitness account of the Russian Revolution. A contemporary journalist writing in the first flush of revolutionary enthusiasm, he gives a gripping record of the events in Petrograd in November 1917, when Lenin and the Bolsheviks finally seized power. Containing verbatim reports both of speeches by leaders and the chance comments of bystanders, set against an idealized backcloth of the proletariat, soldiers, sailors, and peasants uniting to throw off oppression, Reed's account is the product of passionate involvement and remains an unsurpassed classic of reporting.

Interesting but difficult to follow

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.
