Jim goes to sea full of dreams of heroism and boyish adventure. But, under pressure, his own conduct falls far below the ideal he has set himself. Condemned even more by himself than by his fellow men, Jim leaves the world and seeks his redemption in the remote forests of Patusan. It is there he finds fame, love, and success. It is there also that he faces the final and biggest test of his courage and faith, and comes through it in tragic triumph.

First published in book form in 1900, Lord Jim has been acclaimed as one of Conrad's finest works. It combines adventure and the romance of the East in a blend which cannot fail to capture the imagination.

    " One of those books I skipped in college, with good reason: it is infernally long. It's also, however, quite good. "

    " certainly a very good book. not an easy read. appreciated it better once I'd finished it ;-) Very romantic shakespearian theme of guilt. "

    " I get why you're important. I get that Conrad did a lot of brand new things here. I get that the shifting narrative structure is absurdly ambiguous and comments on unreliability in literature. What I don't get is why you had to be so boring about it, Joseph. "

    " Only book I had trouble reading. I don't know how many times I started this book before I could actually finish it. "
