    " I just couldn't get into it. I am not familiar with nautical terms, and I was lost through most of what I read. I had to read the summary on Wikipedia to see what was actually going on. I didn't end up finishing. Since it was a book group selection, I wanted to finish, but every time I picked it up, I would end up falling asleep (so indirectly probably a good thing). "

    " Great story - very well done for a very limited plotline! "

    " Very good adventure tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 10/14/2013

    " Great writing as usual. I love his style and word pictures. A short, but exciting tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason | 10/4/2013

    " A great tale of the ocean and of human frailty. You will be dumping the sea water out of your chair. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shorewalker | 9/30/2013

    " Good fast read, must for anyone who enjoy a good under the sea tale. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy | 9/19/2013

    " Oh, my! One of the greatest, if not "the" greatest, ever written. Conrad must have experienced something similar or he could not have written it with such descriptions! I do like sea stories and I loved this one. (It's short but every word, as usual with Conrad, packed a punch!) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Evan | 8/11/2013

    " Don't read this in stormy weather. Or high winds. Or near an ocean. Or a sink. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marts (Thinker) | 7/14/2012

    " The tale of Captain Macwhirr of the Nan-Shan who, whilst returning Chinese workers home notices unusual barometric readings but refuses to change course believing his ship could withstand any natural opposition. Throughout the disaster he is ably assisted by his first mate Jukes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 7/13/2012

    " Good read. Easy read, although Old English difficult to follow at times. Great parallels and symbolism to the corporate world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hans | 3/2/2012

    " Possibly a metaphor for the self-imposed rule of society as a ship tossed about in a turbulent and unwelcoming universe where men fight to preserve order or squabble over trivialities. Or maybe it is just a story about dumb luck and being almost crushed by a storm. "

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.
