The Inheritors

A precocious take on the science fiction genre well before it rose to prominence - 'The Inheritors' single-handedly tackles the complex themes of corruption, social matters and traditionalism versus the encroachment of the technological age. Conrad successfully does so while describing the Inheritors as inter-dimensional beings that bear a close resemblance to modern-day terrorists as they aspire to a violent and chaotic takeover of the world.

Social and colonial critique is intricately spun into the storyline with particularly potent criticism of humanity's greed and easily corruptible condition.

A highly recommended read for those interested in classical novels that proffer a unique and enticing glimpse into the essence of life itself as viewed through a kaleidoscope of various contemporary issues.

Joseph Conrad’s work and his compact, realist style went on to influence many noteworthy writers, including George Orwell, John le Carré and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) was a Polish-born author who left Poland in his teens to avoid enlistment in the Russian Army. He learned English aboard British ships and started writing in the language after settling in the UK. His most famous novel is ‘Heart of Darkness’ (1899), which was inspired by his experiences on the open sea.
