Nostromo (Version 2)


Read by Peter Dann

(4.2 stars; 7 reviews)

In Nostromo, Joseph Conrad has transformed an apocryphal anecdote about a sailor who got away with stealing a boat loaded with silver into a grandly panoramic, yet deeply unsettling, narrative that sees every conceivable type of political person — from the laughably oafish and brutal to various shades of the well-meaning — caught up in an episode of revolutionary upheaval in the fictional South American country of Costaguana. Who, if anyone, will emerge from this dreadful saga with a shred of dignity left intact? - Summary by Peter Dann (18 hr 0 min)

Reviews

Complex and Original


(5 stars)

F. Scott Fitzgerald once said that this was a novel that he would like to have written. The exposure of how extreme wealth and worse yet, the pursuit of same only leads to eventual moral corruption. This is an excellent tale of alternative history of an imaginary country, but based upon the narrative arc of revolution and unintended consequences. If you enjoy complex stories of imperfect characters, you will find a home in this South American treasure. Peter Dann is absolutely excellent in both his reading and his voicing of his players. Thanks.

Peter Dann!
