Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Description This book provided a vivid description. It is very hard because of the wording.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Dark I've had this book on my book shelf for about three years now, every since my grandfather passed away and it's just been itching me to read it. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it, I just felt I had to read it. It's one of those books your "suppose" to read. I find that the book stays true to the title. I think that's what bothers me the most about the book, but also makes it a book you should read, is the darkness. It's so unnerving and sad to say but present in today's society as it was when the book was written . . . cold . . . ruthless . . . human nature. . .

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 'The horror, the horror' While I read Lord Jim about 5 years ago, Heart of Darkness isn't something I picked up until this Christmas break. A thought-provoking novel and at times difficult to read. As many people have said it truly is one of the essential reads of the 20th century. Some may get more out of this novel than others as an understanding of the history of the Congo during the era of Leopold II will give a better appreciation of Conrad's work. A good book overall. Also, Heart of Darkness has one of my favourite endings ever, ranking just below the encounter of Humbert and Quilty in Lolita.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I read it because I felt I had to. I read it because I felt I had to. It was one of those books, and I have more than a few on my shelf now, that you simply get told again and again that these are VERY IMPORTANT BOOKS, and YOU MUST READ them. I thought it was good and all, and I made it to the end, but I didn't leave with any new understanding. Except maybe for that passage about the Thames in Roman times. ...Which has something to do with the title of the book, the Heart of Darkness, warning against hubris in a strange land, but also warning that success isn't all it's cracked up to be. Soon after I read this, I rented Apocalypse Now, and that clarified things a little bit, at least in my mind, about what it means to "win" a war.
