5.0 out of 5 stars Go beyond Heart of Darkness November 4, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is one of the best purchases for your Kindle that you could possibly make. All of Conrad's works are public domain, but having it all in one convenient volume is worth forking over a few bucks.

Over the past few years I have become a devotee of Conrad's novels. Heart of Darkness is the most read of his works today and that is largely due to its relatively short length and the popularity of Apocalypse Now. It is a great work. But do yourself a favor and read Nostromo and Lord Jim. The Secret Agent is also very good, a spy-novel full of intrigue and the subject matter dealing with terrorism that is still largely relevant today. Conrad's prose is deep and rich which is even more incredible considering English was his third language.

5.0 out of 5 stars Conrad Collection September 6, 2012
Verified Purchase
This Conrad Collection for the Kindle brings together all the writing by this remarkable author. As is always the case with the Kindle volumes, the pictures are not very good, and it takes a bit of futzing around to get to a volume that is in the middle of the collection, but they are all here and make terrific reading....

The tittle of this review summarizes all,what can I add to a masterpiece that has transcended time and place.
This is where Kindle earns its value,having the full works on a single place,portable and available anywhere is one of those arguments that make a point for to a paper book lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars To re-read Conrad's total works for a 3 bucks. April 21, 2013
Verified Purchase
I love the work of Conrad...I love the subjects and the frontiers he reveals in men and places. The problem with the e-book is only the lack of page reference and the difficulty in finding your last read page if your progression is lost...that may be the fault of the reading device/software more than the file content. In all, I love the price and the content.
