The Secret Agent: (A Modern Library E-Book)

by Joseph Conrad

Random House Publishing Group | November 1, 2000 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

The Secret Agent: (A Modern Library E-Book) is rated 5 out of 5 by 2.
Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best novels of all time

The Secret Agent is the unsurpassed ancestor of a long series of twentieth-century novels and films which explore the confused motives that lie
at the heart of political terrorism. In its use of powerful psychological insight to intensify narrative suspense, it set the terms by which subsequent
works in its genre were created. Conrad was the first novelist to discover the strange in-between territory of the political exile, and his genius was
such that we still have no truer map of that region's moral terrain than his story of a terrorist plot and its tragic consequences for the guilty and
innocent alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow... If you've never read conrad before, read this. Most of his other books are about sailing, and the sea, but this one is about terrorism, and is very well done. It's the story of a man, his wife and her younger brother. It's also a tale of a terrorism, murder, betrayal, and utter desolation. Please, for the good of humanity, read this book. The english is rather high-brow, but all and all it is absolutely amazing.
