Under Western Eyes (Barnes & Noble Library of Essential Reading) 2.6 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 7 reviews.

Under Western Eyes contains the incite and commentary into revolt and human struggle that is usually only found in genuine russian novels of the previous generation. Although Conrad's 'The Secret Agent,' written on a similar theme, was cumbersome, Under Western Eyes has the same style that makes Lord Jim and other stories so enjoyable.
