Heart of Darkness

Just finished reading the classic book by Joseph Conrad called Heart of Darkness.

It was published in 1902 and is set in colonial Congo. It was one of the first books to expose the atrocities that took place under the Belgian rule in that part of Africa (then referred to by Europeans as “The Dark Continent.”)

For you movie buffs… it was also Francis Ford Coppala’s inspiration for the last third of the movie Apocolypse Now, which came out in the late seventies as one of the first major Vietnam war films.

It’s a quick read and I highly recommend it… if for nothing more than the historical value!!
