5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent examination of the Revolution
Mr. Reed's depiction of the events in Petrograd leading up to the October Revolution was gripping, well-balanced and thoughtful. The book was not marred in the least by the fact that he was a well-known Communist. Those who percived that are probably either ultra-anti-Communist or perhaps misinterpreted Mr. Reed's work. All in all, an excellent book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wow, 19. September 2000
More characters than a Tolstoy novel!
This book has changed the way I read history -- it is more rewarding to read history than to read about history.
John Reed's first person account of the Bolshevik Revolution has allowed me to formulate my own theories on how a political and social theory can reach critical mass and change the world and transform a nation.
The revolution seems to have been like a wildfire or mania fueled by an unceasing supply of newspapers, propaganda and reports. The Russians would read anything and out of all of the varying ideas it was Lenin's that held sway. An amazing occurrence of political Darwinism.
It is a stirring read in these ambivalent times and I do not think that Reed's intent was subversive, merely journalistic. This alone must have scared the pants off of the western capitalist class of the time.
In light of what Russia is experiencing right now it holds the fascination of watching a car accident.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful book, 3. April 1999
This book is great not only for papers and reports on Russia's Revolutions, but also for readers simply interested in the story of the Bolsheviki. It reads like a great novel, and there are plenty of helpful notes and explanations to help the less knowledgeable reader with this topic in history. Reed shows a lot from the point of view of the Bolsheviki. A very fascinating twist that sets it apart from other books on the subject. First-hand experience gives Reed great subject matter and accuracy. Pick this one up!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A most exquisite work!, 20. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Reed's work is most exquisite; it acts as a very effective summary of the revolutionary events. As far as such goes, it is singularly unique in its singlety of focus. Further, it acts as a most helpful resource as regards obtaining an understanding of the underlying dynamics of the revolution; recorded by an American witness (and the only American to be entombed in the Kremlin), it is an original and wholly constructive study--a must-read for any student of revolutionary thought or conflict dynamics.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Blueprint and Case Study for Modern Communists, 28. November 1996
Von Ein Kunde
A classic study of the Bolshevik Revolution in October/November, 1917 in Russia. Truly an excellent vision of the struggles that workers faced at the time from the inherently oppressive capitalist and feudal capitalist system. A blueprint for today's communists which demonstrates the urgent need to smash the capitalist state and to dispose of private property. The facists will hate this book as it shows an example of their inevitable demise through their own self-interest

3.0 von 5 Sternen A Close Up Look At the Russian Revolution, 7. Dezember 2002
Von 
James Gallen (St. Louis, Missouri, U.S.A.) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
"Ten Days That Shook The World" is the account by John Reed of what he saw during the Russian Revolution. Reed was an American Communist and journalist who is the only American known to be buried in the Kremlin. Throughout this book we read a series of observations and dialogues reported by Reed, virtually without comment, although his bias is apparent. We read his reports of political meetings, encounters with minor officials and his observations of events occurring during those turbulent revolutionary days in Petrograd.
This book is a classic case of missing the forest for the trees. The view is too up close to permit the reader to see the big picture. One does not look here for the history of the Revolution. We look here for its spirit. Here we see the swirling chaos, hear the repeated buzz words and get a feeling for the competing factions which fashioned the Communist tyranny which emerged from the Revolution.
In writing this book, Reed gives the reader a view of himself and other American Communists who saw in the Revolution the future that worked. His view can best be summarized in his comment that, while watching a funeral, he realized that the Russian people no longer needed priests to pray them into heaven because they were building a world brighter than any which heaven promised. This hope is in stark contrast to the now known Communist record.
Overall I enjoyed this book as it taught me some more about the Russian Revolution than I had learned from other books which I had read. (See my Amazon review of "The Russian Revolution" by Alan Moorehead.) For that it was worth reading.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good introduction to the beginning of a 75-year tragedy, 6. März 1998
Von Ein Kunde
The world was certainly changed by these days that shook the world; Reed is accurate about that. He also does a solid job of explaining the background to the Bolsheviks' power grab from the corrupt "ancien regime." This is a good book for those of us interested in how a perverted, twisted, and destructive ideology was able to take control of a great nation and manipulate the levers of power to the tune of 37 million deaths over its lifespan. Now that communism (at least from the semi-peripheral states such as Russia) has been consigned to the dustbin of history, it is well worth a re-read.

1.0 von 5 Sternen A Real Snoozer, 2. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Hard to believe that someone could take one of the most dramatic events of the twentieth century and make it this mind-numbingly boring. Written with an overly verbose, convoluted style, it just never seemed to get to the point. NOTE to future authors: three page end notes have a name - THEY'RE CALLED CHAPTERS. The text reads like a caricature of a blabbering communist from an old movie from the Fifties in Hollywood.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A Communist agent lionizes the murderers., 30. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I took Sheila Fitzpatrick's "History of the Soviet Union" at the University of Texas the same semester "Reds" came out, so it was only logical that I would read John Reed's book on the side. One had a hard time believing that he could be so calm and cool about the thuggish agenda proclaimed by Lenin, Trotsky, Zinoviev, Kamenev, Stalin, _et al._ Then, when the Berlin Wall came down and Gorbachev called an end to the Soviet Union, we obtained access to Soviet state archives. What do you know! John Reed received payments of over $1,000,000.00 from the CPSU in the 1910s and 1920s! Who else ever got _more_ money, in current dollars, than this Communist agent? Maybe I.F. Stone.
It's stunning that American publishers, etc., still give this fellow attention even after we know that, as Solzhenitsyn says, over 65,000,000 people were murdered by the Soviet Communists (and that's not counting the cost of their alliance with Hitler). Amazing moral obtuseness at the heart of American culture.
It's a boring book, too.
