How can you charge for something in the public domain? Isnt that called stealing? PS to all fans, book is great. And it is free on librivox, and the amazon app store. You shouldnt pay for this unless its been bound in hardcover or paperback. Fyi

One of my favorite books, and also the basis of my favorite movie, Apocalypse Now. If you are having trouble getting into the text, just picture Marlow played by Sheen... heading up that dank river... to find the rogue Kurtz. "The Horror. The Horror."

Acerca del autor (1990)

Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) was fluent from birth in French as well as his native Polish. He learned his third language, English, as an adult, and it was in English that he wrote his evocative stories and novels. Conrad drew upon his experiences in the British and French navies to portray the struggles of humanity amid the world's vast indifference.
