El Agente secreto: Verloc vive con su mujer, Vinnie, más joven que el, su suegra y su cuñado, que tiene algún problema mental. Tienen una pequeña tienda en el centro de Londres y una vida bastante normal, al menos en apariencia. Sin embargo el Inspector Heat, no está nada convencido de lo que le dicen las apariencias y sospecha que detrás de esa fachada se oculta un criminal peligroso y aunque no tiene ninguna prueba, es testarudo y va a seguir investigando hasta que la encuentre.

El agente secreto, interactuando con anarquistas y comunistas consigue crear una atmósfera de inseguridad contra la que la policía británica se ve incapaz de luchar.

Listener Opinions

    " Politics, terror (as in terrorism), and exploitation. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 2/13/2014

    " I always hate it when there is a book that is considered to be a classic read that will leave an impending effect on the reader- and I just can't get in to it. I was disappointed as one of my university tutors recommended it greatly; even stating that "if there's only one book you read throughout your life-read this." Of course it was a compulsory read as I was studying it for end of Semester exams. I understood it's potential message, and how it can be relate to today's understandings of anarchism, but... I don't know, I don't think it was really my thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 2/12/2014

    " In true Conrad fashion, the plot is very slow in developing so that when the horror comes you are surprised. Enjoy the character development in this story of greed and dissimulation. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jack Skinner | 2/12/2014

    " I read this book as part of my history course revision, and it may be due to this that I didn't really get into this book. It's a good stand alone book, there are some very interesting characters and a number of important themes running throughout and it was very useful in terms of my course, however it did took some effort to continue reading in places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yooperprof | 2/4/2014

    " Cleverly plotted depiction of nihlism and anarchism amidst the fog of late 19th century London. I did enjoy many of the in-depth descriptions of psychological states. Both conspirators and law enforcers are carefully portrayed, and with ample attention to detail - think of Henry James writing a Dan Brown novel. But I was also dismayed by more than a few passages of turgid prose. And maybe it's just my personal taste, but Conrad really does overdo the irony bit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 James MacIntyre | 2/2/2014

    " At times Conrad produces some amazing description of the characters and their thoughts and behaviours. Didn't love the book as, which the exception of the last 50 pages, often not much is happening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juan Hovez | 1/25/2014

    " Ossipon = an anagram of "poisson." Insert fishbowl metaphor discussion here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nabilah | 1/25/2014

    " Decent plot with awesome ending accentuated by great writing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 1/11/2014

    " What a bleak view of humanity - a very depressing book, though well worth the read due to the characterizations and story-line. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Laura | 1/4/2014

    " unsurprisingly, i hated every second of this book. conrad suxxxxxxxxxxxx, tell everyone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Lindstrom | 11/18/2013

    " This is my third or fourth go at The Secret Agent. Just something about Conrad's style didn't click with me. It was a good book, though, and I will read more of his works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alisha | 11/16/2013

    " Dark, disturbing and hopeless, this book has much to say about humanity's faults and little to say about possible redemption. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dad | 11/9/2013

    " This is different and then not so different from his stories of a white man in a dark man's world. You just read a lot of despair in Conrad's work and even home in London you have the have's and have nots. Worth a read if you are looking for a different angle on Conrad. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Amy Riddell | 10/31/2013

    " I know it's a classic, but I found this book helplessly dull. The prose was so long-winded that reading felt like a chore. The only vaguely rememberable character was Stevie, the rest appeared to have no depth whatsoever. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 gaby | 10/27/2013

    " hate hate hate conrad. always have, and i guess i always will!! even though this was a spy book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Talib Tirmizi | 8/2/2013

    " I personally dislike Conrad's style of writing, but maybe that's just part of his appeal, and an element to his writing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristin | 3/22/2013

    " Ugh. I am not a fan: unattractive characters, dismal landscape, and unappealing narrative. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cyril | 11/22/2012

    " a pessimistic look at a collection of imbeciles in early twentieth century London "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patrick\ | 8/13/2012

    " A morality tale centered on getting rid of the Greenwich Conservatory (a tiny octogan box of a place beautifully sited above the old naval college and Queen Anne house on the Thames). Why this insignificant place I haven't figured out. A good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 5/21/2012

    " very odd little book. i don't remember the names of the characters, just the wretchedness, the cynicism, and the loathing. there's humor, but it's the darkest kind. london does not come off well here, neither do people. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elisabeth | 3/16/2012

    " A little slow, but a good read. "

About the Author
Author Joseph Conrad

Joseph Conrad (Józef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) (1857–1924) was born in Ukraine. Raised by an uncle after the death of his parents, he educated himself by reading widely in Polish and French. At age twenty-one he began a long career sailing the seas on French merchant vessels, after which he went to London and began writing, using the romance and adventure of his own life for his incomparable sea novels.
