In these two magnificent novellas Conrad explores the question of self-discovery through powerful and exciting narratives: in Youth, the experienced seaman Marlow tells the story of a young man's coming of age on his first voyage to the East, while in Heart of Darkness he describes with terrifying depth and vividness the slide into corruption of an idealistic trader, Kurtz, who has become the demi-devil of the Inner Station in the Belgian Congo...

    " I hate this book. A lot. Conrad's writing is so torturous having teeth pulled would be more fun than reading this book. "

    " Read because it's a classic and because I've read a lot about the history of Africa. For me, it's not a book I particularly enjoyed and I was glad when I'd finished it. It's an interesting perspective in terms of the time it was written but that is about all. "

    " Kurtz....one of the best characters ever written, in my opinion, I love this book and it deserves it place among the classics. "
