Publisher's Summary

Joseph Conrad was a native of Poland, yet many critics regard him as one of the greatest English novelists. This is all the more remarkable, since he did not learn to speak English fluently until he was in his 20s.He became a naturalized British citizen in 1886. He wrote many books and stories, but the two that remain most popluar are Heart of Darkness and Lord Jim. Lord Jim is both an adventure story and a story of tragedy and repentence.

raw but good

By "raw" I mean that this recording does not sound quite as polished as more recent versions. But it has a very authentic intensity in the reading that I thought was missing in the others I tried. Very easy to get caught up in this one.

Poor audio

Although the storyline was good, the audio was poor. It sounded like the narrator was in an empty room with a bad echo.
