Publisher's Summary

Among the greatest novels ever written, Conrad’s Lord Jim is the iconic story of a romantic young man and his struggle with guilt and self-loathing. The novel begins with Jim’s earlier life as a ship’s officer. He and the other crew members abandon an imperiled vessel and its passengers after a mysterious collision reveals a dangerous bulge below the water line. But the ship does not sink and Jim survives to face an official inquiry. He is stripped of his license and faces universal scorn and the reality of his own guilt. His need for atonement drives him to one of the most remarkable adventures imaginable. Jim finally recovers his self respect, though even as "Lord" Jim, he cannot quite escape his past.

    "Narrator hard to understand"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story sounded interesting, but I found the narration too difficult to follow. He apparently tried to create a distinctive voice for Marlowe, the main character of the book. But it was in such a way that I simply wasn't willing to continue reading. I'm sure the story was good as I liked Heart of Darkness and other books of Conrad's.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Charlton Griffin’s performances?

    Possibly. But I didn't like listening to the Marlowe character.
