Ok story, narrator fine

I didn’t find this nearly as good as Heart of Darkness. Marlowe, here, hints of something profound to Jim’s life, but his tale concerning his friendship with Jim and his ultimate demise fails to illuminate much beyond a superficial tale. This is the story of a young man overcoming his youthful fears by embracing the colonialism ideals that fueled the dreams of the western world at the end of the nineteenth century. A good story but it’s no Heart of Darkness.

The narrator did a fine job.
