Over the summer I've collected all the Little Black Classics that were published by Penguin to celebrate their 80th birthday! Every now and then I'm reading one of them, and my reviews are mostly some thoughts about each of the books.
Joseph Conrad was a new author for me, but this short story didn't disappoint me, although it had a very uncanny feel to it. The whole village seems a bit off, and both father and son don't come across as likeable or nice people. The father's been waiting for years for his son who's returning to-morrow.
I liked the writing and would like to read more from this author after reading this story.
