I already knew the book well. Although this reading is highly praised, I did tire of the foreign accents after a while. I also found Mrs Gould's voice annoyingly weak. but these are minor matters in a good overall reading.
I absolutely loved this. Conrad is a magnificent writer. The narration was excellent. I may listen again
Definitely one of the best I've listened to
This is a book of such depth, grace and passion. Despite being written in 1904, Nostromo still presents a fresh thought provoking story. The story starts slow but you will be rewarded by sticking with it and will come to the point where will not be able to put it down. The characters are of incredible depth and complexity and the story is timeless.
The narration is ideal for the story and is superb.
There is a reason this book is in the top 100 modern library choices, and this performance brings out the story in its fullness.
Audiobooks made this classic come alive. I could both sense and see the time and place, a masterful production -brilliant.
