This novel follows in Conrad's rich style, which I love, but it bores others. If you're willing to explore Conrad's world, you'll find it realistly and beautifully complex. I particularly love the inclusion of Spanish, Italian, and French phrases. Conrad pulls you into South America. Conrad focuses on characterization, not plot, so if you're an action-lover, you'll be disappointed.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
