Publisher's Summary

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 seen 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.

Great Story, Poor Performance

Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?

ONLY if it's a physics book.

Any additional comments?

The good story gets lost in the monotone performance of the narrator.
