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.

Listener Opinions

    " the book everybody should read beforer opening their mouth to criticize the lives of others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rev. | 2/14/2014

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heather | 2/1/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Singer | 2/1/2014

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

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kārlis | 1/26/2014

    " Spectacular read. Looking rough and living strange; ending up in all the unlikely places, unharmed and unaffected, guarded by never-wilting, impeccable faith. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan Odetta | 1/15/2014

    " Not for lazy reading....worth it. Great classic and darn good story. "

    " A bit tedious to read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greta | 1/2/2014

    " My High school English teacher always claimed that Lord Jim in a hero, but I still maintain that he is an anti-hero. I won't write me essay here, but I enjoyed the book. "

    " "The way is to the destructive element submit yourself, and with the exertions of your hands and feet in the water make the deep, deep sea keep you up... In the destructive element immerse." "

    " I probably should not mark this as "read", since I only got to page 13 and then hurled it across the room. "

    " less than wht i expected ... it gets tiresome with conrads over excessively precise and correct english .. the story jus moves on and on ... i cud also blame my lack of understanding more than conrads way of writing .. ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Spain | 8/11/2011

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Martin | 12/28/2010

    " 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Charlene | 12/21/2010

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

About the Author
Author Joseph Conrad

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.
