User Review  - Alan Stubbs - Goodreads

I read much of Conrad's stuff as a schoolboy - he was buried nearby. Gavin Young's book is superb - so evocative it made me re-read Conrad. I recommend both! Read full review

Review: In Search Of Conrad

User Review  - John - Goodreads

I remain a fan of Young's solid travel writing. However, never having read anything by Conrad, I couldn't get into the historical footsteps aspect of this book at all; I skimmed through those parts, concentrating on the modern-day encounters. Read full review
