I'd go along with most of the other suggestions too  McLellan, as I
recall, was quite good.  Francis Wheen's book is quite readable.  Even
Isaiah Berlin's bio of Marx from the 1930s isn't half bad.

And yes,  Kolakowski's Main Currents of Marxism, is probably one of the
best works of its kind from an apostate.
