Lord Jim tells the story of a young, idealistic Englishman—“as unflinching as a hero in a book”—who is disgraced by a single act of cowardice while serving as an officer on the Patna, a merchant-ship sailing from an eastern port. His life is ruined: an isolated scandal has assumed horrifying proportions. But then he is befriended by an older man named Marlow who helps establish him in exotic Patusan, a remote Malay settlement where his courage is put to the test once more.

Lord Jim is about courage, cowardice, self-knowledge, and personal growth. It is one of the most profound and rewarding psychological novels in the English language. Set in the context of social change and colonial expansion in late Victorian England, it embodies in Jim the values and turmoil of a fading empire.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Ann | 2/18/2014

    " Equal parts excellent and exhausting. I've read few writers who launch themselves so mercilessly, unlyrically, almost compulsively full-bore into every sentence, every idea -- it's not always the best writing, but to me it was unimpeachably true and deeply admirable. Perfect for those who take their adventure stories with a complexity that Robert Louis Stevenson fails to deliver, but also wish Modern Novels had room for more shipwrecks and jungles. "

    " A great piece of literature.... something different "

    " I've been working on reading this wretched book for several weeks. All I can say is that I'm glad I listened to the audiobook in my car. At least I didn't waste any of my life on it. Save yourself from this boring, drawn out, epic to guilt. "
