Although Heart of Darkness was one of the first literary texts to provide a critical view of European imperial activities, it was initially read by critics as anything but controversial. While the book was generally admired, it was typically read either as a condemnation of a certain type of adventurer who could easily take advantage of imperialism’s opportunities, or else as a sentimental novel reinforcing domestic values: Kurtz’s Intended, who appears at the novella’s conclusion, was roundly praised by turn-of-the-century reviewers for her maturity and sentimental appeal. A classic.

This audiobook version is one of the worst. However the written book by Joseph Conrad is one of the best.
Marlowe, of course. He tells the story beautifully.
The narrator sounds like he did this in his bedroom or basement. He is not a professional. He needs a deeper actor's voice, and not to break up sentences so much. He may annoy some people.
All of it.
Look for a better version.
