In September 2010, John G. Peters (University of North Texas) reviewed Joseph Conrad and the Reader for Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries as follows:

“In this volume, Acheraïou considers a topic that has received relatively little attention: the relationship between author and reader in Conrad’s works. The author argues for a relationship between the two in which each contributes to the meaning of Conrad’s works. He also believes Conrad’s views regarding the reader come out of both classical and 18th-century narrative traditions. Though in places Acheraïou belabors certain aspects of his argument, overall he offers a solid treatment that suggests a new way of looking at Conrad’s works and their relationship to narrative and audience. A useful contribution to the field of Conrad studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty. — J. G. Peters, University of North Texas”
