    Good Book - some background information recommended

    I would give this book 4 stars because it is very interesting, but it requires a certain level of previous knowledge on the socialist revolution in Russia that I was not previously aware of. I had to stop reading the book multiple times to look up basic facts about the revolution that the author left out because she knew so much about the revolution that she forgot to explain some of the basics to the audience. Someone who already has an understanding of the revolution would find this book extremely interesting.

    Louise Bryant does an excellent job in portraying the events of the revolution in a clear and interesting way. The book is divided into many small chapters, which go in a somewhat chronological order. The middle of the book is divided more into certain people or groups of people and discusses their role as a whole in the revolution. She tells her story of simply going around in Russia and of some of the people she encountered while there. In the course of reading this book, I learned a lot about how social revolutions take place. Bryant takes a more pro-Bolshevik approach in this book which is an interesting new way to learn about the revolution as opposed to the traditional anti-communist traditional american literature.

    I would recommend not necessarily recommend this book to anyone. It is for people who are previously interested in Russian politics and would most likely not be enjoyed by someone who has little previous information on the events in Russia.
