bookshelves: librivox
Recommended for: t'pau
Read in August, 2007

(i know! what's with all the librivox? what? can't i actually read? i can too!)

the best part about re-reading these classics is that it makes you want to watch the movie adaptation, and oh, the HORROR, heart of darkness, novella that it is, lacks the details i desperately need in a tale about human depravity in colonial africa. especially after reading moby dick, i am in no mood to fill in the flora/fauna/dragons that should play a more prominent role in a book with such a fantastic title.

seriously, there were no monsters in this book. and not enough death, not nearly enough. it was more like heart of icky.
