Midwest Book Review, October 2015

Evocative and insightful, Lord Jim is a thinking person’s novel, highly recommended especially for public and college library audiobook collections. © 2015 Midwest Book Review Read complete review

Conrad’s Lord Jim pieces together the events of a shipping disaster. It’s a novel whose narrative structure is as elusive as the background of its central character. Narrator Ric Jerrom’s masterful approach to characterization suits this work perfectly. For most of the story, Conrad’s famous narrator, Marlow, recounts his perspective of the case in the manner of a modern bard. Jerrom captures Marlow’s voice with a melodic cadence and a cheerful tone. Aside from Marlow, Jerrom skillfully produces a variety of accents for Conrad’s multicultural cast. As the story of Jim unfolds through fragmentary accounts, Jerrom’s performance makes listeners feel they’re part of Marlow’s audience. © 2015 AudioFile
