    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubI was absorbed into this one possibly because I hadn't read Conrad in a while but it hit the spot It slacks a bit here and there but simply by merit of being Conrad's last book I found it worthwhile and even astounding in a sort of piecemeal way It was not maddeningly or achingly good but as a solid tale it stands uite well You might say even in the choppy prevailing conditions it had sea legsIt wouldn't be my recommendation for someone new to Conrad for them there's always The Secret Agent or Lord Jim but if you're an avid follower or even anything short of admirer this book isn't a bad choice While I could go on – in detail put down a few spicy uotes expound on the revolutionary and counterrevolutionary aspects of the book or its ch

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubWhile there have been better Joseph Conrad novels The Rover was a fitting and touching end to the long writing career of one of the greatest writers of the late nineteenthearly twentieth century Indeed it is hard not to see something of Conrad himself in Peyrol the sailor who gives up the sea and returns to land yet who always has his heart still with the seaOf course The Rover was not intended to be Conrad’s last work and he was still working on other books at the time of his death However this was to be his final completed novelThe story concerns Peyrol a sailor and adventurer with a colourful past who decides to settle down in post Revolutionary France to retire with a small fortune that he has stolen Peyrol returns to the home of his childhood and sets about rigging up a small boat for pleasureHowever hopes of an idyllic retirement are to be cut short Soon Peyrol is caught up in

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubThe last novel Conrad completed does not suffer from the Last Book Worst Book syndrome that can occasionally plague authors as they unfortunately run out of new ideas and go through the motions Not that Conrad does not revisit his favorite themes in this one it is very Conradian Empire the sea duh sacrifice and redemption guilt and self forgiveness espionage and the complications of love to the seamanPeyrol may be Conrad's most human protagonist and I think he might be my favorite Conrad hero A pirate and gunner who was rooted up and transplanted to the sea from his South France village he comes back an old man and rents a room from a very strange trio an unreconstructed French Revolution Patriot who very likely killed the parents of Arlette and scooped her up as bounty and the owner of the farmhouse Catherine Arlette's auntAll is well until a stranger comes to t

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubFor sheer entertainment Joseph Conrad's last finished novel the ROVER published in 1923 may be his most sustained Conrad is clear sighted and maintains a tone somewhere betwern Robert Louis Stevenson and Hans Christian Andersen My comparison may strike you as odd We know he thought Stevenson's novels were not true to life And of course Conrad was not a writer of fairy tales But throughout THE ROVER reminds me of the sort of book NC Wyeth illustrated It is a grown up story but told in a sitting down by the fire manner It is absolutely Conrad with a pipe in his mouth an Irish Setter at his feet with everybody within earshot gathering gradually to listen to the taleBriefly it's late in the Napoleonic era and an old sea dog has returned to the little spot in France where he was born He realizes as he settled in that he has entirely missed the terror his fellow Frenchme


  5. Paul Cornelius Paul Cornelius says:

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubA straightforward adventure story which beneath the surface explores the motivations and fears for having lived a life with meaning Its elegiac and melancholy tone would have made it a fitting work with which Conrad might have concluded his writing career As it was The Rover was his last completed work before his death with the unfinished Suspense A Napoleonic Novel published posthumously In form it appears initially as a linear tale but it is one that washes back in forth like a series of waves gliding into transitions taking up different perspectives and only then returning to the origins of those points of view It's uite a subtle effect and one that illuminates both characters and

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubIronically enough Conrad’s last novel is the first one of his works that I am reading so I cannot compare it yet to his other books but I will definitely be reading them in the near future I loved this novel although I felt that it was uit

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubJoseph Conrad's knowledge of the sea and international events in the 18th and 19th century are used to great effect in his last novel Peyrol is a French master gunner seeking retirement and solitude in the coastal hills of a farmhouseInn in the south of France The French Revolution has citizens spying on citizens and although old Peyrol tries to distance himself from political events he eventually finds no option but to carry out one last heroic act of patriotism for his country Another classic from Joseph Conrad


  8. Lucy Lucy says:

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubThis is much accessible than many of Conrad's novels The reader is engaged from the outset and there is no wondering who the characters are and no confusing unreliable narrator stuff It is a simple story told by a master of psychology a wizard with language


  9. James Fisher James Fisher says:

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubThe Rover was Conrad's last book and probably one of his accessible stories A little background on the French Revolution comes in handy to know what a 'sans cullotte' and a 'ci devant' are since the terms appear regularly throughout the story Otherwise a great novel with some plot twists romance mystery and a satisfying ending depending how you look at it I suppose

    The Rover Kindle º Paperback rover book, The Rover EpubI enjoyed Conrad's writing style along with the nautical theme of the book A bit ponderous at times but it kept me coming back to see what would happen next A very interesting ending as well
