Almayer's Folly by Joseph Conrad

Disappointing start from Conrad

Rating 3 out of 10

This is Joseph Conrads first novel. It deals with the conflicts between native people (Malayans) and Dutch tradesmen in the jungle of Borneo. It has some brilliant passages, but all in all it's a quite dull read.
