View Full Version : what a terrible book to study

this book is a good book to read though rather tedious in parts. it is very cleverly written. unfortunately my liking for the book has been dashed by studying it for coursework. dont ever study it as it shall ruin the book. it is very clever but hard to allow quotes to be taken as there are no relevant quotes to be used so it makes writting about the book very hard.

Maybe you should choose something more appropriate. You have to be over sixteen to get the best out of this. There are easier Conrad novels.

I wouldn't know.

I agree about being over 16. This is a difficult book even for a mature reader. But as for quotable quotes, how about , "God for men, religions for women." Or again, "The sentiment of love can enter into any subject and live ardently in remote phrases."
