    Walter

    Terrifying, haunting, stays with you for a long time. The whole book gave me a sick feeling, but it's still an important read. The deliberately unstable way Conrad wrote it is also masterful. However, I do not recommend searching too in depth for what "the terror" truly is; it may just be the last thing you ever do.

    Heart of darkness

    It is hard to read this in the 2000's through the prism of the previous century so as to accept the explicit white superiority inherent in the narrative. It is a well written tale but I think the revulsion I feel is greater than that intended.

    Not what I was expecting

    To hear the typical Heart of Darkness fan rave about it, I was expecting a far more eloquent read. I found this to be somewhat unwieldy and hard to follow. There were some lovely phrases towards the end, but I can't list this among my favourite reads.

    Heart of Darkness

    For one to enjoy this book one must forget about political correctness as we know it. For me it was like meeting an old friend, there are so many echoes of this book throughout 20th century cinema and literature that it feels familiar and yet it is so very fresh and raw that it's worth the while to read. If you can forget about that and get into the Victorian age white male frame of mind before opening the book it should be one of the best reads you'll have in sometime.

    Heart Of Darkness

    This is a brooding dark story of duty and devotion! Two men separated by a jungle, a river and purpose! The dangers that challenge one are the reasons for living for the other! In the end nothing will separate one from the other, not even death! Well written and compelling the author weaves a masterpiece of intrigue that clutches the reader and doesn't let go!
