Lord Jim may have been based in part on true events. Although Conrad never confirmed this assertion, similarities to real life events appear too strong to be dismissed as mere coincidence. The novel is in two main parts: firstly Jim's lapse aboard the Patna and his consequent fall, and secondly, an adventure story about Jim's rise and the tale's denouement amongst the people of Patusan - set in the Indonesian archipelago.

    " Interesting book on the nature of courage and self-image. Conrad's style is very unique, but I don't like it nearly as much as I used to. While the prose is very well written, I just find Marlowe long-winded after a while. I wanted to give this book a much higher rating, but I just found a lot of the non-essential plot points to be kind of a drudgery. "

    " This book was literally painful to read! It had such a great premise. Someone should rewrite it. Lord Jim could make a great movie if it made more sense. I never quite knew who was talking and what exactly they were talking about!!! So much potential--what a shame. "

    " One of my favorite Joseph Conrad stories, "Lord Jim" is a densely plotted tale of cowardice and redemption. "

Joseph Conrad (Józef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) (1857–1924) was born in Ukraine. Raised by an uncle after the death of his parents, he educated himself by reading widely in Polish and French. At age twenty-one he began a long career sailing the seas on French merchant vessels, after which he went to London and began writing, using the romance and adventure of his own life for his incomparable sea novels.
