I'm reviewing this specific Google Books edition. It started out with about one major typo per page. That was bad enough to take me out of the reading a bit, but I could usually guess what the wrong word was supposed to be. Bit there were a few pages with multiple bad typos & I gave up. Conrad's murky prose is challenging enough on its own.

St. Barth trip Book #3: A worthy read.....several tales of the South Seas, one of primitive Africa, and a unique victorian story of manners thrown in for good measure...all leading to the conclusion in different ways that if we devote too much of our human capital on 'thinking properly and intellectually,' we pay a dear price in our overall emotional well-being.....human-to-human genuine honest communication is a necessary part of our healthy existence.....over-thinking can be detrimental.
