I don't know what it is, but there is something about this book that sucks me in every time. I have read Heart of Darkness countless times and my copy is filled with enumerable markings and underlines. The narrative within a narrative delivery, the quest up the Congo, the contrast between the industrialized/civilized world and the jungle, Conard's wonderful prose, and the torment of man. Great, great stuff.

The added Congo Diary from Conrad's own travels is a neat extra treat in this edition.

"For a time I would feel I belonged still to a world of straightforward facts; but the feeling would not last long."
