Publisher's Summary

Heart of Darkness is the story of Charlie Marlow's voyage from the civilized world of Europe into the primitive interior of the Congo of Africa. As a manager of a Belgian ivory company, Marlow travels into the interior of Africa up the Congo River to meet Kurtz, an agent of the ivory company. Deep in the interior of Africa, Marlow finds Kurtz living among the savage natives, who revere him as a god.

In Heart of Darkness, the Polish-born Conrad has crafted a classic of English literature. It is an intense psychological drama that deals with the very nature of good and evil. With this narrative Conrad draws sharp contrast between the "civilized" and "uncivilized" world and presents the listener with a strong commentary of the evil savagery that lies at the heart of human existence.

Awful Rendition of a timeless classic.

I loved reading this book in high school. I bought the audiobook to listen to on my commute. Unfortunately, the narrator sounds like J Peterman from the Seinfeld show and is stuck in a monotonous level of speed reading. The inflection never changes. I tried to stick it out, but just can't bare it any longer. I should have spent the extra $3.00 on the Kenneth Branagh version.
