Jim is a young seaman, who's faced with a life or death scenario, and chooses self-preservation over the well-being of his unsuspecting passengers and crew. One impulsive act permanently damages his career, dramatically changing his future.
Jim is a young man who's enamored by life at sea. He is a crewmember on the vessel, Patna, which is scheduled to transport hundreds of passengers to Mecca. When they encounter rough weather, the ship is damaged and begins to leak. Jim and his crew hastily abandon the Patna and everyone onboard. Afterwards, they discover the ship didn't sink and the passengers survived. The crew is quickly reprimanded for violating protocol and are stripped of their certifications. Jim is overcome with guilt, seeking redemption in the eyes of himself and his peers.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Lord Jim is both modern and readable.
