The characters are the best part of the story. I really liked Kurtz who was a tyrant. An extremely interesting novel. I would recommend this to anyone who just wants a good read.

I'm going to be honest.
Reading Heart of Darkness felt like slogging through the African jungle. I think Conrad did it on purpose.

This book made me want to get lost in the jungles of Africa. And not in a good way.

- Latest Review: Of Zots and Xoodles by Zarqnon the Embarrassed
This book left an indelible impact on me. The narrative underscores the potential in every human being for good and evil. This was for me a scary revelation, to experience the depth of the depravity to which Kurtz descended.
