Audible Editor Reviews

Ten Days that Shook the World serves as an electrifying account of the events that took place in Petrograd in November of 1917. Writer John Reed was eyewitness to the revolution and privy to both the peripheral conversations in the community, as well as the intense speeches made by Russia's famous leaders. In this performance, Jack Hrkach communicates the enthusiasm and momentum of the revolution. His voice is steady and precise, making it easy for the listener to involve him or herself in the history of Reed's story.

    "A lovingly detailed, but biased account"

    John Reed - the only American buried inside the Kremlin wall (right next to Lenin's tomb) writes this first-hand novel about the days up to the Russian Revolution. Obviously a sympathizer himself, he accounts this period lovingly and reverently.

    It is a fascinating journey into one of the most important occurrences in 20th Century history. I listened right before a trip to Russia this summer and I must say, the context was quite useful.
