    " another of Conrad that I have read and enjoyed before. a tragic tale of a wonderful set of people who might have lived that idylic life on a tropical isle away from all the corruption of society but victimised by greed and jealousy of a horrid hotel keeper in Surabaya and a wicked soldier of fortune who comes to their island convinced that they have money (which they dont). Conrad is a master of character and environment and the tragedy that afflicts many of higher motives yet not left alone to do good. One of my favorites. "

    " I love Conrad but this is not my favourite. The characterisation is stunning, Heyst's repression, disenchantment and longing are palpable and the villains are the best villains you'll read in a long time. The first two thirds is wonderful, rich, beautifully written but as soon as the romantic allusions start it suddenly gets stiff and mawkish and frankly unbelievable. Lena as a character and her dialogue is just not believable. "

    " I initially decided to read this book because I wanted to look clever while carrying it around while I was backpacking... unfortunately, no prop can make me look clever, but this book definitely kept me entertained. Not a pick-me-up sort of book, but I guess if Conrad's writing it, you have expect that. What can I say, it's a classic. "

    " I didn't get into this quite as much as the rest of Conrad's books. "
