The Good Soldier

Kicks off with the immortal line, "This is the saddest story I've ever heard" which also set you up to be taken in by the narrator, who for the first third of the book, you believe has an accurate if a little pompous grip on things. Then gradually you realise over the space of thirty pages that he hasn't got a clue what's going on around him. From taking him to be a bit of prig, we feel for his predicament, which of course, he doesn't see himself, (and if he did, would we feel for him?) Brilliantly powerful novel, and technically 10, 10, 10, 10, 10 from other writers. As cheap as 1.37 new on Amazon. "This is the best bargain you'll ever read."

Ford worked with Conrad, and some critics say wrote much of Conrad's novels. Does it matter? If it didn't to them, does it to you? What does this say about critics who didn't help either Ford or Conrad to write.
