Hailed as one of Joseph Conrad's finest literary achievements, this is the story of a young man unwittingly caught in the political turmoil of pre-Revolutionary czarist Russia.

A gripping novel that ultimately questions our capacity for moral strength and the depths of human integrity. This new edition includes commentary and a reading group guide.

the storyline was pretty good but i think another author could have done a better job of storytelling.

If you took English classes in high school or college, you probably struggled through (and cursed) Joseph Conrad's dense, heavily symbolic "Heart of Darkness." While still his most read work, he was quite prolific and his other novels are, if not exactly easy, more accessible. "Under Western Eyes" is one of his later novels that explores the Russian soul (Conard was Polish), in a way that recalls Dostoevsky, and political radicalism. Also see "The Secret Agent."
