This one became a struggle for me, taking two weeks to get through a little more than 100 pages. It's one of those books I "appreciate" more than really enjoy.

I love roadtrip novels (even when the road is a river), but Heart of Darkness lacks the humor and beauty of Huckleberry Finn or the wild enthusiasm of On the Road. Conrad has some wild sights to show and a few interesting things to say, but it almost feels like he's determined to say them in the dullest, most bone-dry way possible.
