Joseph Conrad Audio

Joseph Conrad was a Polish-born author who is widely regarded as one of the greatest English novelists. He is known for the depth of his prose and his depiction of life at sea. Conrad found inspiration for his tales of ocean voyage from his own real-life experience as a sailor in the French merchant navy. He also served in the British navy, traveling around the world from the East Indies to Bombay and Singapore.

It was in the Congo region of Africa, however, where Conrad's most famous story, Heart of Darkness, began to take shape. The short story recounts most of what Conrad saw and felt during his four-month stay in the region. It wasn't until the author reached his 50s, however, that he received recognition and financial reward for his work. This was largely due to the publication of what are now considered his best novels.

If you're new to Conrad's works, consider downloading the Heart of Darkness audiobook. As a short story, it's an excellent introduction to the author's rich prose. Also recommended is Conrad's lesser-known first novel, Almayer's Folly. Another of the author's most famous selections, Lord Jim, is conveniently available on audiobook download.

This is the kind of novel that keeps working in your mind long after you have finished listening to it. It is compelling, exotic, and suspenseful, and it is far more than just an adventure story.
