Book Review: Heart of Darkness

Confession time: this was a self-inflicted homework assigment for my next book, which is set in Congo. My re-read felt like I was experiencing a kinetoscope version of Apocalypse Now, especially with Conrad’s nesting of a narrator within a narrator—which results in some pretty dense prose.  A good tale told much more vividly by Coppola. Unfortunately, it was not much help to me on my novel. So, take my rating with a grain of salt. (3 of 5 Stars)
