Heart of Darkness

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


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 true classic

Forget Jane Austin, this a truly great classic piece of literature! To all those who rated it poorly, well your going have to use that brain, it has a lot hidden elements to it. It also takes some time to get into it... But the time is worth it! It's not like reading twilight, you have to actually think a little and maybe do some research, I know shocking. Ppl did more of that back then...

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.


If given the time and effort, this novella will give back more than one puts into it.
