Batten Down the Hatches
He makes you feel wet. Conrad creates an aura of doom in this novel. If you are at all a fan of any other of his work then this is like adding potatoes to the steak dinner.. makes it a bit more rich.. Now because both Conrad and this reviewer are both of Polish nationality I may have an afinity to the works of this author beyond enjoyment. He is a complex author from a complex life in a complex time but what else is life but a convoluted story that entwines us. Romance is not just flowers and kisses. Sometimes it is the way the earth or the sea presses an individual to yield or persevere against adversity. "The old man and the Sea" is a romance and so is "Lord Jim". and "The African Queen"..

Joseph Conrad's characters shine through!
A wonderful sea story that gives us characters that contrast and delight. The narrator was not too good, however; he was not emotionally in tune with the drama and seemed a little monotonous; but his performance gradually improved over the length of the story.
