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.

Lord Jim - The Spiral of Decent for Honor

Story: It is classic so I have nothing new to add. I found the book interesting in the exploration of a person to trying to recapture their honor which reflects the times of the writer. The story move a slower pace than I used to but that reflects the art of the times and there were some good explorations of the characters that made up for or were the reason for the slowing of the story.

Reader: Good.

Production: Good. The sound quality was good but it could have been better. The reader's voice was flat.
