The End Of The Tether


Read by Peter Dann

(4.5 stars; 22 reviews)

At an age when he should, by rights, be embarking on a well-deserved and comfortable retirement, Captain Whalley, a sailor of the old school — and even, in a small way, a pioneer of the eastern maritime trade — finds himself forced by circumstance and his own sense of honour to bind himself to a three year contract of employment as captain of a tramp steamer whose owner is the steamer's own engineer, and a mean and surly gambling addict to boot. Even this challenging situation, however, soon proves to be the least of Captain Whalley's difficulties. (Summary by Peter Dann) (5 hr 16 min)

Reviews

perfect title


(5 stars)

always amazed at Conrad's mastery of English given his Polish origin. being a sailor myself I relived manye a voyage listening to this very realistic tale of the frailty of the characters. great story to the end.

Excellent reading of one of Conrad's less well known novels


(5 stars)

This story contains many of Conrad's usual themes, the sea and the feelings of the men who live by it and sometimes cannot live without it. Excellently read.


(5 stars)

Excellent adventure story as are all of Conrad’s works. The historical setting is “what it was” and if reading if offends you, then you’re defining and limiting yourself by the past.

Raycyst


(4.5 stars)

This white author admits to using tethers to oppress BIPOCs and tether them to the white cis gendered western phalogocentric imperialism that killed George Floyd. We need to end tethers. Narrator is excellent. But that is just another reason this book is raycyst. Excellence and assigned standards of performance are additional tools with which white males oppress BIPOCs. End excellence and performance standards.
