Publisher's Summary

Set in the fictional South American country of Costaguana, Nostromo explores the volatile politics and crippling greed surrounding the San Tomé silver mine. The story of power, love, revolutions, loyalty, and reward is told with richly evocative description and brilliantly realised characters. But Nostromo is more than an adventure story; it is also a profoundly dark moral fable. Its language is as compellingly resonant as the sea itself; the characters absorbing and complex. It was Conrad’s masterwork, a forerunner of Modernism, and one of the greatest novels of the 20th century.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Rarely do you find a book of this quality and dept

This is a book of such depth, grace and passion. Despite being written in 1904, Nostromo still presents a fresh thought provoking story. The story starts slow but you will be rewarded by sticking with it and will come to the point where will not be able to put it down. The characters are of incredible depth and complexity and the story is timeless.

The narration is ideal for the story and is superb.

There is a reason this book is in the top 100 modern library choices, and this performance brings out the story in its fullness.
