About the book:

A masterpiece of twentieth-century writing, Heart of Darkness exposes the tenuous fabric that holds "civilization" together and the brutal horror at the center of European colonialism. Conrad's crowning achievement recounts Marlow's physical and psychological journey deep into the heart of the Belgian Congo in search of the mysterious trader Kurtz.

@JungleFever Heading down to Africa on a boat. Too hot! I get the creeping sense this job isnt going to be as cushy as they made it sound.

The natives seem unhappy. Some are even violent! Why dont they appreciate how much weve done for them? Ungrateful welfare leeches, I say!
