Description

Jim, the first mate aboard a small steamer named the Patna, travels from port to port in the Pacific Ocean. When the ship hits floating wreckage, Jim and the crew are forced to abandon it, leaving hundreds of ethnic travelers onboard. However, Jim's reprehensible actions are soon discovered by the court, and he is compelled to face his guilt and redeem himself - a journey that leads him to a remote exotic location where he is revered as the Lord, "Tuan Jim".

Through beautifully evocative descriptions and ponderous philosophical prose, Conrad delivers a powerful novel about one man's struggle to reconcile who he would like to be with who he actually is.

Wow! This Blew My Mind.

This was yet another incredible story written in breathtaking prose by Joseph Conrad and masterfully narrated by Ric Jerrom. This one hit me hard because Conrad is so brilliant in his description of the characters and what they felt and thought about themselves and about others that you can't help but feel and think like Jim observing himself (as you observe yourself) and then switch roles and think and feel like, say, Marlow (yes, the same Marlow from The Heart of Darkness) judging Jim. You get to know these characters quickly and then gradually become them, seeing everything from their point of view. The superb narration by Ric Jerrom only facilitated this process. Too bad that this, as far as I know, is the only book of Conrad that he has narrated.

As for the story and what it is about ... well, you can read the Audible blurb for that which, in my opinion, says too much. Suffice it to say that this is a story of self-discovery, judgment and redemption, as one sees himself and as others see him.

This was a GREAT experience.

Extravagant wording from another age.

Give me Kipling. This book is one long pomposity of self importance. It is worth at least a partial hearing if for no other reason then as a peep hole into the other side of Kipling's world. "Plain Tails From The Hills" is timeless.
