A great, almost mythic plot, and well written given its vintage (despite the unfortunate use of terms like 'savages'), however, Kurz's great sway over the people around him isn't very convincing and that undermined the book. Well narrated by Kenneth Branagh, unsurprisingly.
An incredible performance of a spellbinding novel. The story of Marlowe looking for the "eloquent phantom" Kurtz is the inspiration for Apocalypse Now. Branagh weighs every word, caresses every sentence and manages to purvey a sense of looming dread with every chapter. Brilliant.
Not only was the story intriguing and compelling, but the performance really brought it to life. I have never heard an audible book so well done. Very enjoyable.
the story was narrated incredibly well and added to the dark plot of the story. The story itself is a journey into the dark recesses of what man can do, particularly in the case of imperialism.
