Its good but very once and a while you go off topic or makes no since to me. All and all i love it; its a good story so far.

A Classic Worth Reading

I waited years to read this. I read ‘The Heart of Darkness’ twice finding it profound. I think ‘The Secret Agent, A simple tale’ equal to ‘Darkness’ and germane for our time. 09/01/2021.

What's the point?

Ok so it's artfully written and brilliantly descriptive - The Secret Agent is also a page turner as it progresses. If your goal is to have your sense of compassion vigorously exercised only to see its objects mercilessly offed by the author while the bad guys go their merry way - this book is for you. For me I want my wasted time back. And talk about a pointless subplot with the Police. Wuthering Heights was more life-affirming than this nihilistic wasteland.
