This was a fantastic performance! I felt like a child sitting around a campfire and being told an amazing ghost story!
Kenneth Branagh is truly superb. It is the best audiobook performance I have ever experienced.
Highly recommendable. An excellent book which was among the first to use fiction to portray the atrocities taking place during the colonisation of Africa and in Belgian Congo (contemporary D.R. Congo) in particular.
The language is a bit dated, but Kenneth Brannagh's superb performance makes it an very enjoyable piece of literature.
I'm a professional painter and love ennobling, enlightening literature
Having read the book in high school, it was with keen interest that I listened to this reading. No one could have read it better than Mr. Branagh. And the book was far more interesting than I remembered
When the narrator visits the widow and has to decide how to answer her last question.
No. There were no surprising elements since I was already familiar with the book.
Heart of Darkness is one of my all time favorites. I have purchased and listened to several audio versions but Branagh has out-voiced them all. This is the best version - a must have!!
Story was interesting but much better after I read the history of the Belgium Congo. Heard the story a second time with more insight and understanding. This was an important historical novel because it shed light on the abuses of the Europeans towards the native population.
As if the story itself were not compelling enough, Branagh's performance draws one in and makes one feel a part of the story itself. Truly magnificent.
