Nostromo by Joseph Conrad

"I'd rather have written Nostromo than any other novel" - F. Scott Fitzgerald.
"Nostromo is the greatest novel in the English language" - my old professor (I never got around to reading it)

I think that realistically we'll only be able to meet in January because the holidays are coming up. Also, Nostromo seems like a bit of a hefty book, and some of us are slow readers

    Hi all. I didn't see there was an event this recent before I added my suggestion to the box. How did your meetup go?

    Hi Carl. I agree. I guess The Count of Monte Cristo is out of the question then?

    I think we should aim for shorter books than Nostromo, for practical (rather than literary of intellectual) reasons.

    Hi, Mark. Sorry, I just got back from vacation. Unfortunately, now I won't be able to join the event on the 7th due to personal reason. If everyone prefer to stick with the 7th then I'd be happy to join in the next book discussion :)

    Happy new year.

    I've sent e-mails to those who RSVP'ed to ask to change the date to 14th January, but not everyone has responded, so the date is still 7 January until further notice.

    On another note, I just ordered Nostromo from g.dk. I managed to get it for 22.50kr (+30kr postage), so I bought a bunch of other classics for the same price. I don't think you'll get a better price in a second-hand shop :)

    If it's OK with everyone else I'll move the date to 14 January (the following Saturday). I'll post an update later.
