Publisher's Summary

Please note: In addition to the novella Heart of Darkness, this audiobook also includes a short story featuring the character Marlowe, "Youth", which takes place before Heart of Darkness. "Youth" is the first story in the audio.

"A weary pilgrimage amongst hints for nightmares." This is how Marlowe describes his journey into the Belgian Congo in Heart of Darkness. And while Europeans go mad, corporations turn tyrannous, and the legend of a great ivory hunter is dangled before him, Marlowe observes everything with a keen eye, as we journey with him into the heart of darkness.

This book is NOT Heart of Darkness!

The title doesn't match the story! This title needs to be removed from the Audible lists; I was charged for it, but actually wanted Heart of Darkness.

This A Different Book

This book is Youth by Joseph Conrad not Heart of Darkness. The narrator is good.

Narration not good.

I really enjoyed listening to "Kidnapped" with B.J. Harrison as narrator. I don't know what happened here. I found that his voice did not match the characters, and often he would hush to a whisper for no reason.I could not finish it. Maybe one day I'll get this book by another narrator.

Mesmerizing

Great narration, it draws you in. Hardest part is not listening to the whole thing in one sitting.

Spectacular

Absolutely, positively, 110% wonderful. The reader did an excellent job in portraying emotions for each of the characters. The tone of voice for different sections changed nicely. It was a lovely book and hearing someone else read it was better for me. It makes me want to read more of Joseph Conrad's books. This one was just breathtaking.

Confusing Diction

The word choice is so deep and confusing, it's hard to understand what is going on. Absolutely hated this book.
