Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Read this book less than a year ago and didn't like it b/c I didn't really understand it. (Shorter paragraphs would be a big plus, for instance.)

But really liked it this time. Reminds one that power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Reminds one of the reality of the sinful nature. Reminds one that while ideals and noble aims can may fill a man's mind, a base impulse resides in a man's heart, and it must be recognized and dealt with, or the ideals and aims can easily be subverted. The heart of darkness is the heart.
