Heart of Darkness centers around Marlow, an introspective sailor, and his journey up the Congo River to meet Kurtz, reputed to be an idealistic man of great abilities. Marlow takes a job as a riverboat captain with the Company, a Belgian concern organized to trade in the Congo. As he travels to Africa and then up the Congo, Marlow encounters widespread inefficiency and brutality in the Company’s stations. The native inhabitants of the region have been forced into the Company’s service, and they suffer terribly from overwork and ill treatment at the hands of the Company’s agents. The cruelty and squalor of imperial enterprise contrasts sharply with the impassive and majestic jungle that surrounds the white man’s settlements, making them appear to be tiny islands amidst a vast darkness.

I hadn't revisited "Heart of Darkness" for decades until I listened to this audiobook. My impressions are simple and intense.

Heart of Darkness is novella-length, but it leaves the listener with much to ponder during after the reading. This is an old-style adventure story about a man who tells a tale of his youth when he naively went up the Congo for the first time and encountered native and foreigner, slave and oppressor, cunning and mad, ambition and sorrow, alike, in others and in himself.

Somehow, through required reading and my own pleasure reading through classics in high school and college age, I missed Joseph Conrad's works. His writing is well over a century old now and he wrote contemporary work in a time when colonialism and imperialism ran rampant, when there were still unexplored places in the corners of the earth, and where men could go on adventures that returned them changed both inside and out.

The narrators portrayal of the characters, even the female ones, is so spot on. This is the kind of book that I love listening to audio in.

This was my first time reading Heart of Darkness. It was highly gripping, and the narrator does a great job at narrating. I listened to the entire book in one sitting.

This book is so full of symbolism that I had to listen to it twice to get the most out of it.

The narrators voice gives a complete new dimension with an interpretation on a richer more meaningful level that is impossible with just the printed word.

Anyway, this is one of those few works I constantly return to for its humanity and for its inspiration. The narrator reading of HoD is amazing in both its depth and nuance.

I have read this book multiple times and found that listening allowed me to perceive and comprehend parts of the text that I had previously glossed over. It was like a new experience altogether. I highly recommend listening to this version.
