I though the book was well written. A lot of thought went into it. I came a way with a great appreciation to the Russian history of the revolution and the underlining events that set things off. I great book that I would recomend to anyone who wants a in depth well written history book on Russia

How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator's accent and manner of speaking is difficult to understand, and this is made worse by a poorly produced recording. If you want this book you'll have to read it in book form---the audio recording will drive you nuts.

I enjoyed both the content and the delivery of these lectures. The lectures have obviously been scrupulously prepared. They give detailed background information on Russian history, essential for understanding the causes of the revolution, before moving on to a detailed description of the revolution itself. They also continue past the revolution to consider the consolidation of power by the Bolsheviks. The delivery is excellent: Dr Smele speaks in a restful manner, so that one has time to absorb the information, but is never boring.

Good content (especially when supplemented with the free PDF material- instructions in audio). And a well presented and enjoyable listen.
