excellent novel; but not for everyone, 13. April 2000
Joseph Conrad's The Secret Agent, is one of my favorite books because it has a great plot, a fascinating ending, and skillful characterization. However, the vocabulary is advanced, which may make the plotline seem tangled and obscure. I would advise that you keep a dictionary by your side, both to understand all the details and subtleties of the story and to learn a lot of new words. That being said, a lot of people will find this novel too slow and boring. Unfortunately, many people today are too lazy to know their language to the full extent that Conrad did. And just think--English was his second language! But anyway, if you're up for a challenging but richly rewarding read, check out The Secret Agent. Unless you get bored by good writing, you won't be disappointed.
