The Heart of Darkness By Josep Conrad

library book
This short book was as dark as it's title implies. It follows Marlow up the Congo River as he goes to hold down his job with the company as an ivory transporter. He also has another job, unknown to others. That is to bring the violent Kurtz back. Before I read it I read about it on the net and was aware of the problems the story covered. I would suggest you research it a little before you read it.

I was surprised to learn that this book was the basis for the movie "Apocalypse Now." 3
