He had to lower these gentlemen at the end of a rope…

Chapter 3

5:32
$1.05

In a pause of stillness…

5:57
$1.05

Chapter 4

5:43
$1.05

It was pain; she suppressed the twinge.

6:10
$1.05

Linda pouted, advancing her red lips…

6:27
$1.05

The spirit of self-forgetfulness, the simple devotion…

What concerned him most at the time…

Sir John arrived too late to hear the magnificent…

$1.05

She was always sorry for homesick people.

5:57
$1.05

'My dear, you seem to forget that I was born here.'

6:23
$1.05

And for many years this was the last of the San Tome mine.

5:01
$1.05

For a moment, biting her carmine lip…

6:09
$1.05

He thought of it every day…

5:11
$1.05

She was the first person to whom…

5:40
$1.05

They turned back, and after she had slipped…

5:22
$1.05

The latest phase in the history of the mine…

5:15
$1.05

A fringed Indian hammock from Aroa…

4:56
$1.05

'A man must work to some end,'…

5:02
$1.05

These two young people remembered the life…

5:23
$1.05

'The Costaguana Government shall play its hand… '

5:47
$1.05

Thus the great personage had spoken…

6:03
$1.05

They had stopped near the cage.

She bore a whole two months of wandering…

He took up a paper fan and began to cool himself…

5:29
$1.05

Chapter 8

5:02
$1.05

Thus professionally spoke Don Pepe, the fighter…

4:50
$1.05

And he would tap his ear with the tip of his forefinger…

4:25
$1.05

And it was not only the men that Don Pepe knew…

5:27
$1.05

To Charles Gould's fancy it seemed that the sound…

5:12
$1.05

Hernandez, the robber, had been an inoffensive…

4:48
$1.05

Mrs. Gould's ride with the first silver escort to Sulaco…

5:32
$1.05

The reception of the first consignment of San Tome silver…

4:04
$1.05

The string of padlocked carts lengthened…

3:21
$1.05

No wonder, then, that Sir John, coming from Europe…

4:00
$1.05

The Excellentissimo was on his legs.

5:20
$1.05

An enormous national flag of Costaguana…

5:13
$1.05

He smiled ruggedly, with a running together…

5:57
$1.05

The man fell back…

3:30
$1.05

Laughs were heard at her anger…

4:01
$1.05

PART II: Chapter 1

6:02
$1.05

Always an army chaplain…

6:33
$1.05

In the afternoon the news of that vote had reached Sulaco…

5:05
$1.05

Chapter 2

6:41
$1.05

Never before, perhaps, had Hernandez's head…

5:52
$1.05

Chapter 3

5:32
$1.05

This letter, in Antonia's handwriting…

6:23
$1.05

'I am inexpressibly grateful for your welcome…"

4:12
$1.05

Chapter 4

5:33
$1.05

After the triumph of the Ribierists…

5:28
$1.05

Mrs. Gould smiled a good-bye at Barrios…

5:16
$1.05

'It's a delightful surprise to see you, Mrs. Gould… '

4:42
$1.05

'And so very wise for his age,' retorted Decoud.

3:23
$1.05

Chapter 5

5:24
$1.05

Martin Decoud was angry with himself.

4:32
$1.05

The people returning from the harbour…

5:24
$1.05

Even that declaration did not make her look at him.

5:22
$1.05

'We Occidentals,' said Martin Decoud…

5:23
$1.05

He was surprised at the warmth of his own utterance.

5:12
$1.05

He paused, then muttered almost inaudibly…

5:09
$1.05

The tide of political speculation was beating high…

4:23
$1.05

It was known that Father Corbelan had come…

4:49
$1.05

Father Corbelan had remained quite motionless…

5:06
$1.05

'Come, brother,' he said…

5:13
$1.05

'I assure you, Senor Hirsch,' murmured Charles Gould…

5:23
$1.05

'What does he want to keep so much…'

3:05
$1.05

Chapter 6

5:09
$1.05

He confronted his wife with a firm…

5:17
$1.05

Decoud, exchanging a steady stare with Mrs. Gould…

5:09
$1.05

Mrs. Gould gave no sign of being offended.

5:12
$1.05

'Why don't you say all this to my husband?'

5:31
$1.05

'Perhaps he prizes it for its own sake,' Mrs. Gould said…

3:05
$1.05

Chapter 7

6:08
$1.05

'I didn't learn till later in the afternoon…'

5:05
$1.05

After having written so far…

6:11
$1.05

You mean Nostromo?' said Decoud.

6:32
$1.05

'I walked up to the table blindly…'

5:03
$1.05

'"What are they doing in there?" she asked.

5:17
$1.05

'"And here, in this boudoir," I said…'

5:05
$1.05

'This is why, my dear girl, I am a fugitive to-night.'

5:47
$1.05

'The incorruptible Capataz de Cargadores is the man…'

5:45
$1.05

'I am waiting for him here now.'

5:17
$1.05

'Is she really dying, senor doctor?'

5:51
$1.05

Old Giorgio, in profound ignorance of his wife's views…

5:07
$1.05

'Leave my soul alone, Padrona…'

5:07
$1.05

'It is as if I were taking up a curse upon me, senor doctor.'

5:10
$1.05

It was a new experience for Decoud…

6:17
$1.05

'No, you needn't explain,' said Decoud…

5:15
$1.05

Decoud lay on the silver boxes panting.

3:54
$1.05

A small flame appeared burning quite straight.

4:04
$1.05

Chapter 8

5:39
$1.05

The mere presence of a coward, however passive…

5:11
$1.05

Nostromo ceased chirruping at once.

5:38
$1.05

He moved about as warily as a cat.

5:19
$1.05

The last words he hissed into Decoud's ear

5:31
$1.05

Sotillo, as Nostromo had surmised, was in command…

5:39
$1.05

Sotillo's ideas did not soar above the care…

5:25
$1.05

Sotillo, on the bridge, muttered from time to time…

5:24
$1.05

Hirsch, when ordered forward by Nostromo…

5:17
$1.05

There was certainly something almost miraculous…

5:21
$1.05

There was nothing for Decoud…

5:10
$1.05

Nostromo detected the ironic tone.

6:22
$1.05

PART III: Chapter 1

6:09
$1.05

Charles Gould rode on…

5:14
$1.05

It was not from any liking for the doctor…

5:34
$1.05

The chief engineer pulled out his watch.

5:39
$1.05

Slow, heavy footsteps moved across the planks…

3:45
$1.05

'The man has proved his trustworthiness…'

3:39
$1.05

Chapter 2

6:34
$1.05

In this Captain Mitchell was right.

6:29
$1.05

Sotillo had taken up his quarters on the upper floor…

5:43
$1.05

'The watch! The watch!' raved the colonel…

5:25
$1.05

Sotillo, too, had time to cool down.

6:31
$1.05

'How in the name of all that's marvellous…'

7:36
$2.10

Chapter 3

5:06
$1.05

'Had you?' muttered Captain Mitchell.

5:03
$1.05

The peculiar dawn of Sulaco…

5:19
$1.05

Since his arrival in Sulaco the colonel's ideas…

5:03
$1.05

The horseman had gone on with only a glance…

6:27
$1.05

'Drive carefully,' cried Mrs. Gould in a tremulous voice.

5:53
$1.05

At the turn of the road the glare of a big fire…

5:44
$1.05

Chapter 4

5:55
$1.05

Down below in the patio…

5:15
$1.05

The doctor, arriving with his sharp, jerky walk…

5:42
$1.05

Their dread of the raving tyrant translated itself…

5:59
$1.05

Dr. Monygham had become, in a manner…

5:18
$1.05

Mrs. Gould, her colour heightened…

5:50
$1.05

Mrs. Gould watched his abstraction with dread.

3:41
$1.05

'He was afraid to start back on account of Hernandez…'

3:51
$1.05

Chapter 5

6:12
$1.05

Thus at first sight the agent of the Gould Concession…

3:57
$1.05

Pedro Montero, the brother of the general…

4:19
$1.05

Pedrito Montero looked with disgust…

4:44
$1.05

Chapter 6

5:48
$1.05

Father Roman expressed in a few words his thankfulness…

6:21
$1.05

'Listen, Padre.'

3:54
$1.05

Chapter 7

5:09
$1.05

Pedrito Montero surprised one at first sight…

5:15
$1.05

'Ah! You are back at last!'

4:58
$1.05

'Certainly not that last,' Charles Gould declared…

4:50
$1.05

Chapter 8

5:02
$1.05

The darkness of the sky had descended…

5:45
$1.05

'There is no mistake.'

5:29
$1.05

Bareheaded, in a thin shirt and drawers…

5:38
$1.05

The whole enormous ruined barrack of a place…

5:18
$1.05

Already the doctor had left him.

5:46
$1.05

The Capataz was heard striking the table with his fist.

6:18
$1.05

'It will be necessary to take him into…'

5:17
$1.05

He went on to develop his view of Sotillo's…

4:44
$1.05

Nostromo had listened with profound attention.

4:22
$1.05

Chapter 9

6:44
$1.05

But as soon as the other had shut after him the door…

5:11
$1.05

He felt a reluctance…

5:21
$1.05

A slight quiver passed up the taut rope…

5:30
$1.05

Below, the troops fell in silently and moved off…

4:23
$1.05

The doctor swallowed with difficulty.

4:40
$1.05

Nostromo's prolonged silence made the doctor uneasy.

5:17
$1.05

A low exclamation had escaped Nostromo.

5:08
$1.05

He bounded downwards into the black, smoky hall.

5:45
$1.05

Nostromo released him abruptly…

5:09
$1.05

Nostromo heard him stir…

5:15
$1.05

'You have returned,' he said, with shaky dignity.

6:55
$1.05

Chapter 10

6:22
$1.05

And all day Captain Mitchell would talk like this…

5:56
$1.05

And the lunch would begin and terminate…

5:20
$1.05

'The equestrian statue that used to stand…'

6:03
$1.05

Captain Mitchell stopped for a while.

5:15
$1.05

'Abominable Pedrito!…'

5:02
$1.05

Nostromo had, indeed, found the lighter's boat…

5:25
$1.05

Streaming from head to foot…

5:35
$1.05

In the face of the open gulf…

5:52
$1.05

Not a living being…

5:37
$1.05

The dawn from behind the mountains…

6:10
$1.05

Chapter 11

5:30
$1.05

The doctor dropped into a chair.

5:10
$1.05

When all were seated again…

5:31
$1.05

'It is about Nostromo that I wanted to talk to you.'

5:19
$1.05

'Just a mozo of the town.'

5:30
$1.05

Mrs. Gould sat up, opening her eyes very wide.

5:20
$1.05

In profound silence, and glaring viciously…

5:09
$1.05

Chapter 12

5:35
$1.05

The incomparable Nostromo, the Capataz…

4:09
$1.05

Captain Fidanza, unpicturesque…

5:15
$1.05

Directly his schooner was anchored…

5:15
$1.05

And Linda, his best-loved daughter…

5:32
$1.05

'And between you three you have brought me here…'

5:23
$1.05

The dusk let him see yet the tender…

5:43
$1.05

She disengaged herself gently.

5:08
$1.05

The heroic Garibaldino…

4:23
$1.05

Chapter 13

5:33
$1.05

Ever since that Sunday…

5:18
$1.05

'What folly!' answered the other…

5:10
$1.05

'I have shot Ramirez - infame!'

5:57
$1.05

'Me?' whispered Mrs. Gould, shrinking a little.

5:29
$1.05

But he did not say by whom or by what…

5:16
$1.05

'Console yourself, child.'

5:27
$1.05

The old man smiled under his thick moustache.
