    "My girlfriend bought this for me as a gift, I guess she was told that I would like it since I'm into thrillers and anything that has some action or suspense but for my taste the story wasn't what I was looking for. It was a bit convoluted at times, trying to follow along just felt like more of a chore than something I would want to do with my free time. That being said, the book is decent and if you like the authors writing style you might enjoy it."

    "I read Heart of Darkness in high school and I've been trying to get into reading again, so I picked out another Joseph Conrad book. This one is a compilation of short stories. Some are better than others but overall I would recommend it."

    "This is one of Conrad's best in my opinion. It's a really touching story, and the author really knows how to tug at your heart with this main character. A great read if you like drama fiction stories. This story is just the right length, too. Highly recommended"
