    " One of those books I skipped in college, with good reason: it is infernally long. It's also, however, quite good. "

    " certainly a very good book. not an easy read. appreciated it better once I'd finished it ;-) Very romantic shakespearian theme of guilt. "

    " I get why you're important. I get that Conrad did a lot of brand new things here. I get that the shifting narrative structure is absurdly ambiguous and comments on unreliability in literature. What I don't get is why you had to be so boring about it, Joseph. "

    " Only book I had trouble reading. I don't know how many times I started this book before I could actually finish it. "

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.
