I have read Payne's Lenin bio and thought it to be one of the best biographies I have read. In this bio Payne really describes Trotsky's personality well. This is not a lifeless biography. Robert Payne deserves, in my opinion, acclaim for his writing. They are sadly out of print which is a travesty.

very interesting account of Trotsky's life BUT....(1) I have never in my life encountered such long, involved sentences....had to read some over 2-3 times to "get it", and (2) why use such archaic words when more recent ones would do as well; or better!? (see what I mean....I've just used a long, involved sentence to give you a taste of what Payne's are like! HIis are worse!)

I wanted to know about such an important, but little known man. Book is difficult to follow because it does not seem to have an outline, and many supporting characters names are mentioned once and never again. Important facts are not weeded out from unimportant trivia.
