The book is worth reading, but Figes' scholarship has been questioned - you can look it up on the internet for yourself. That doesn't entirely surprise me though. This is the first book I've read on the history of the Russian Revolution and so I can't comment too much on the historical accuracy, but I can definitely say that when Figes tries to discuss Marxist theory - which isn't often - he gets it completely wrong. There are probably better books out there to read about October 1917, but it's still worth the read because he does a good job of discussing the different institutions and class relationships in 1893 -1924 Russia.
