Nobody can write a sentence like Conrad!

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would, but in retrospect I think I liked Heart of Darkness better. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0393963357, Paperback)

This compact novel, completed in 1900, as with so many of the great novels of the time, is at its baseline a book of the sea. An English boy in a simple town has dreams bigger than the outdoors and embarks at an early age into the sailor's life. The waters he travels reward him with the ability to explore the human spirit, while Joseph Conrad launches the story into both an exercise of his technical prowess and a delicately crafted picture of a character who reaches the status of a literary hero. A classic novel.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:11:16 -0400)

A haunted sailor, driven from port to port, from island to island, Lord Jim is a man in search of identity.
