I've always been interesting in reading Conrad and when I was going through my great grandfather's books I found a copy of The Arrow Of Gold and started there. I always thought that Conrad was an adventure writer and was look forward to such a novel, but so far it has been anything but. So far being about half way. I know he's in love with her, but that seems to be the only thing going on. I really like Conrad's narrative voice, but I find it quite slow going with all the dialogue and nothing else. In the spectrum of his works, how is The Arrow Of Gold regarded? Are his other books like this or are they more reflective of his adventurous reputation?
