The classic Joseph Conrad tale about the San Tome silver mine in South America, and all the evils that surround it, is a literary feat, and perhaps Conrad's greatest work. Since the story is essentially about the politics of a developing country, the novel is still topical today. Narrator Nigel Anthony's voice is perfectly suited to such a literary masterwork and never disappoints. Anthony brings listeners into an entirely new world in which power and greed prevail and the characters will do anything to obtain them. Anthony breathes life into the story, capturing the essence of the characters with stunning performances that display his range as a performer. A remarkable story - an outstanding listening experience!
Nostromo is Conrad's masterwork, a forerunner of Modernism, and one of the greatest novels of the 20th century. A profoundly dark moral fable set in the surroundings of a silver mine, it is a story of power, love, and revolution in the fictional South American country of Costaguana.
