Publisher's Summary

The author of Heart of Darkness and Lord Jim also wrote brilliant works of short fiction. His stories, ironic and penetrating, expose the dark recesses of the human character that make us squirm, for we recognize them in ourselves.
The eight stories in this collection include "Karain: A Memory", "The Idiots", "The Lagoon", "The Tale", "Prince Roman", "Amy Foster", "Falk: A Reminiscence", and "The Warrior's Soul".

What a Shame

I agree with much of the other comments concerning the prestation of this book. . . the sound quality is bad and the reader offers a less than stellar performance. But beyond this my greatest gripe is with Audible. . . rather than taking the time to seperate the download by stories (and it really wouldn't take much time to do it) they settled on putting in random breaks. Such a half hearted effort (especially with a compilation of short stories) left me frustrated and unsatisfied. Sorry Mr. Conrad, you really didn't deserve this!

poor sound quality

The sound quality of this audio book is poor. The stories are very good but to follow a Joseph Conrad Tale you can not be straining to understand what the narrator is saying. Hope they remaster.
