Summary

Please note: In addition to the novella Heart of Darkness, this audiobook also includes a short story featuring the character Marlowe, "Youth", which takes place before Heart of Darkness. "Youth" is the first story in the audio.

"A weary pilgrimage amongst hints for nightmares." This is how Marlowe describes his journey into the Belgian Congo in Heart of Darkness. And while Europeans go mad, corporations turn tyrannous, and the legend of a great ivory hunter is dangled before him, Marlowe observes everything with a keen eye, as we journey with him into the heart of darkness.

Narration not good.

I really enjoyed listening to "Kidnapped" with B.J. Harrison as narrator. I don't know what happened here. I found that his voice did not match the characters, and often he would hush to a whisper for no reason.I could not finish it. Maybe one day I'll get this book by another narrator.

Mesmerizing

Great narration, it draws you in. Hardest part is not listening to the whole thing in one sitting.

Confusing Diction

The word choice is so deep and confusing, it's hard to understand what is going on. Absolutely hated this book.
