's review

it was ok

I haven't read any other Conrad and it might be a while before I do because this was uncomprehendingly boring. The first half was slow to the point of ridiculousness, the characters were explained and fleshed out in all the ways I didn't need to know about and none of the ways I did.

There was detail where it wasn't necessary and none where it should have been and the characters were just boring, dull, bleh.

It only became good in the last 40 or so pages but at that point, I was so ready for it to be over I couldn't even enjoy it.
