Publisher's Summary

Jim, the first mate aboard a small steamer named the Patna, travels from port to port in the Pacific Ocean. When the ship hits floating wreckage, Jim and the crew are forced to abandon it, leaving hundreds of ethnic travelers onboard. However, Jim's reprehensible actions are soon discovered by the court, and he is compelled to face his guilt and redeem himself - a journey that leads him to a remote exotic location where he is revered as the Lord, "Tuan Jim".
Through beautifully evocative descriptions and ponderous philosophical prose, Conrad delivers a powerful novel about one man's struggle to reconcile who he would like to be with who he actually is.

Nursery School Narrator

Would you try another book written by Joseph Conrad or narrated by Ric Jerrom?

Unfortunately, Conrad's masterpiece is ruined by a narrator enunciating every word as if he is a primary school teacher reading to a class of infants on the rug at the end of the day. He over emphasises words and adds a cheery spin to far too many, totally out of keeping with the serious, thoughtful narrator Marlowe. Be warned - a superb novel ruined by absurdly glib narration.
