Heart of Darkness (1899) is a short novel by Polish novelist Joseph Conrad, written as a frame narrative, about Charles Marlow's life as an ivory transporter down the Congo River in Central Africa. The river is "a mighty big river, that you could see on the map, resembling an immense snake uncoiled, with its head in the sea, its body at rest curving afar over a vast country, and its tail lost in the depths of the land". In the course of his travel in central Africa, Marlow becomes obsessed with Mr. Kurtz.
A heart of darkness
Worst. Book. Ever.
Best book ever. But tough
This is easily one one of the best books ever written and one I've read. But is also one of the hardest to read. There are layers of underlying themes, allusions, and every possible literary goodness. It's hard to understand at times but it's worth it.
I prefer the adaptation
I love this book, yet it is very slow.
I prefer Apocalypse Now over this book.
