I felt it a very balanced, worthwhile text that gives a much better-informed view of Lenin than has been the case in the propaganda-based past.
Certainly worth having!
Some other Amazon reviews have complained there is a lack of big picture, and this could be true. However, it is a biography of Lenin, not a history of Russia under Lenin; so for me this criticism does not really stand.
An excellent, horrifying book.
Nicely set on the Kindle: however if the paper version had any plates these have not been included, which is a thoughtless omission on the part of the publisher.
