Lord Jim is not my favorite Conrad but I would not call it terrible. Far
from it. It is probably his most well-known because of the movie with Peter
O'Toole. My opinion: Heart of Darkness, a novella, is his best, followed by
Nostromo and Victory.

With a math/science/engineering major I never read much lit. I have been
pleasently surprised at how much I have been enjoying these. (Except Lord
Jim. In my opinion, TERRIBLE. It's one of the few things my wife agrees
with me on; she read it in high school)
