Lord Jim by Joseph Conrad is a story that shows that the mistakes of the past will follow men and can never be fully repaired. We meet a young man named Jim, who, full of romanticized dreams joins the crew of the Patna, taking 800 pilgrims to Mecca. When the rusty old ship strikes something and is holed, Jim and the other officers abandon ship, leaving the passengers to their fate. But the ship is rescued and towed to port and while the other officers flee, Jim is left to be brought to trial.

Jim tells experienced sea captain Marlow his story, in that at first he refused to leave the boat but eventually did jump overboard and saved himself. He now lives with the knowledge that he was a coward and spends his life wandering and trying to avoid his reputation but through Captain Marlow he is given a true second chance. He assigned to a post in an isolated and dangerous jungle region of Malaya. He becomes valued by the tribesmen for his bravery and is called “Lord Jim”. Unfortunately he becomes too trusting and is betrayed and his world falls apart.

I found the parts of the book that Marlow narrated very difficult to get through as he is very long winded and uses three or four words when one would have done. But eventually the story pulled me in and although rather tragic, I found this story of one man seeking redemption and casting out his demons a very good read. I was certainly reminded of his Heart of Darkness, as the themes were similar and the character Marlow appears in both books. Overall I would say the more compact Heart of Darkness is the better book, but Lord Jim is certainly worth the time spent on it. ( )

As a huge fan of Heart of Darkness, I couldn't help comparing Lord Jim. Perhaps that's why this was hard to enjoy. They are not comparable. If you can endure the first 20-24 chapters of Lord Jim, you will be rewarded with an interesting twist in the tale. But it's a long trudge to get there. ( )

I've abandoned plenty of books after a few pages, but this is the first one I've given up on almost half way through. I couldn't take the jumpy, indirect approach to the story. Just when you feel like the book might finally be moving forward, it goes off on another tangent. I just came home from a library book sale with a stack of books I'd rather read. This book is wasting my time. ( )

This book gets 5/10.

A book that I started out with much enthousiasm, for I rather liked The Secret Agent and Under Western Eyes.
But this book got me all confused. Half the time I was wondering who was talking to me, where we were at and what episode was being told. I was also annoyed by the many repetitions. Maybe not literal repetitions, but after reading about the ship going down with so many lives multiple times, without any significant additions to it, I do know what happened.

I'm happy to be done with this one. And not sure if I'll start any of the others waiting on my shelf any time soon. ( )

As with Almayer's Folly, Conrad's first novel, Lord Jim features yet another vagrant soul who is lost in his own society, driven from it, in fact, and left to create an entirely new world among Malays and Bugis in a remote village, Patusan. Jim's psyche is fractured, beyond repair. The weakness exhibited in his early fall from grace comes back to destroy him after he has seemingly righted his life.

This psychological expose is told mostly through the narration of Marlow, a merchant captain who befriends Jim after his honor is irreparably destroyed at a court of inquiry. But Marlow is not the only figure to give the reader glimpses of Jim. There are multiple perspectives. And at one point, even an unseen narrator who reflects on the reflections of Marlow.

Written at the dawn of the twentieth century, Jim's story is a seminal one for a century of Western protagonists educated to be Romantics but conditioned by skepticism and cynicism to expect the worst results possible. Jim's fate, psychological growth arrested and dashed at the very moment of seeming successful, became the tale of many would-be adventurers who found despair and isolation at their end rather than love and acceptance.

He was an inch, perhaps two, under six feet, powerfully built, and he advanced straight at you with a slight stoop of the shoulders, head forward, and a fixed from-under stare which made you think of a charging bull. His voice was deep, loud, and his manner displayed a kind of dogged self-assertion which had nothing aggressive in it. It seemed a necessity, and it was directed apparently as much at himself as at anybody else. He was spotlessly neat, apparelled in immaculate white from shoes to hat, and in the various Eastern ports where he got his living as ship-chandler’s water-clerk he was very popular.
