Heart of Darkness

<p>Is this book worth reading or should I invest my time into another book?</p>

<p>Can't help you man. I started reading it and the diction was just impossible; and I am no literary slouch.</p>

<p>It's really dry reading but it's short.</p>

<p>Oh my God. I hated that book. The general gist of the story: The main character goes to Africa, where everyone seems to be going insane. Then he goes insane and starts obsessing over this Kurtz character the entire freaking book. It's very painful to read. Cheese-grater to the eyes.</p>

<p>Oh come on, guys.</p>

<p>I agree that it is kind of dry and tedious at points, but if you really take the time to understand it, it's worth it.</p>

<p>If you read it for leisure, its impossible. if you read it to analyze it, then its great.</p>

<p>That book is so cool. Even if you don't analyse it inside out it's very good and some of the ideas will haunt you for a few nights. I had the weirdest dreams when I read that book.</p>

<p>Apocalypse Now was based on the book Heart of Darkness. Saw the movie, didn't read the book.</p>
