Outstanding Yarn26 December 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a riveting story. Conrad weaves a tale about a "simple" man. Captain McWhirr takes his ship through an enormous typhoons, and all survive. He finds solutions where "smarter" people see huge problems. Conrad's description. Of the motions of the ship place you on board for the storm.
Difficult read but you felt you were experiencing the wrath of a typhoon.3 December 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Enjoyed the descriptive prose the ship personnel experienced. This included the ship and the weather conditions. You felt right in the middle of a maelstrom.

Typhoon: A realistic story of a ship' crew under duress.16 December 2018 - Published on Amazon.com
Although this book was written in 1902, the action could have taken place in modern times. Joseph Corad did an excellent job of writing a story about the crew of a ship caught in a violent storm.
A masterpiece of the power of the language when used well.24 November 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
A classic in the utilization of vivid descriptions and masterful scene painting skills. It is impossible to read without feeling the typhoons lashing at the room around you. Easy to see why it is a well-studied work by many students.
