Set in Malaya, Almayer's Folly is Joseph Conrad's first novel. In it, he charts the decline of a Dutch merchant after a 25-year struggle against overwhelming odds. Though married to a bitter and hateful Malayan wife, Almayer refuses to accept the financial ruin which he has precipitated. Instead, he dreams of fantastic wealth and a return to the civilization of his youth, accompanied by his loving daughter, Nina. But when Nina turns away from his elusive fantasies to the stark reality of her native lover, Almayer must face his inevitable destruction. Download and start listening now!

    " Was about to start 'An Outcast of the Islands' and decided to re-read this one first since it follows some of the same characters and it's been years since I read Almayer, and I really liked it. I think I like it even more upon the second reading--a very nice beginning to my upcoming Conrad binge. "

    " The characters were more real than in "Heart of Darkness" and "The Lagoon". "
