Is Lord Jim as good as Lucky Jim?125. Lord Jim, by Joseph Conrad
I’ve been working through this one since July, and finally finished it in time to make it #125 of the year. It starts off slow, but the action in second half makes for quicker reading.
Against a vivid backdrop of the sea and the East Indies, Conrad tells a penetrating story of a young man’s struggle to overcome the evil he sees in himself. Prompted by cowardice, Chief Mate Jim abandons 800 passengers on bard his sinking ship. Condemned by the world and a disgrace to himself, Jim spends the rest of his life hounded by a sense of moral failure. He escapes to an exotic, primitive island where he is received as a god, and there falls in love with a beautiful native woman. He attains final spiritual peace of mind by an unexpected and inspired act of courage.
