Under Western Eyes

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Joseph Conrad

Narrated By: Geoffrey Howard

Date: January 2006

Duration: 11 hours 20 minutes

Summary:

Hailed as one of Joseph Conrad's finest literary achievements, Under Western Eyes tells the story of a young man unwittingly caught in the political turmoil of pre-revolutionary czarist Russia. It begins with a bomb that kills its intended target, a hated Russian minister of police, along with several innocent bystanders. A young student named Razumov hides the perpetrator, who questions his moral strength and integrity.
Set in St. Petersburg amid intrigue and espionage, this novel hauntingly speaks to the broader, timeless question of human responsibility and honor. Conrad said that his intent was to render "the psychology of Russia," a country being driven to anarchy by misguided revolutionaries. This masterwork, published six years before the Russian Revolution, is a chillingly accurate prophecy of what was to come.

    This is one of the few Joseph Conrad books I have not read. I enjoyed it very much. It has strong similarities to Lord Jim and Secret Agent. Toward the end I imagined I could see the inevitable conclusion. Conrad fooled me. I was definitely off base. The end is as it should be and is masterful storytelling. The narrator's voice fits the story well.
