Joseph Conrad: "The Return" (My GoodReads Review...but I will post more later)

The Return (Hesperus Classics)The Return by Joseph Conrad

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh, wow. Now, Conrad isn't my favorite most of the time, but this story (and it must be read slowly) is amazing. It is brutal and explosive in understated ways. You have to take your time with it, reading each word and thinking about choices. What I love best is how Conrad slices through the sham of late-Victorian narrative and life. Such a painful read.
