Conrad's writing gets my sweaty skin salt encrusted, hosed down and blown dry while I claw my way across the heaving deck. His prose plunges and my pulse pounds in rhythm with the ships throbbing heart: His characters, so clearly drawn that if one were to walk into my room, I would recognize him in an instant.
Great read. -

P.S. Chapter 3 THE TOOL is most interesting and could very well apply to the sextant as to an airplane or boat.
