Book Review Brief: The Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad

Just finished Heart of Darkness tonight. This book is an example of the kind of book that I really like to read. It is well-written, heavy at times, and made me come away with the feeling that there was a deeper meaning to it (though not in a frustrated way as with a certain other book I read).

I loved reading the final scene. Conrad puts to words a sad situation and feeling that I would imagine a writer would have a difficult time describing. He does so in a way that had me glued to the pages, eager to see what was coming next. Hard to believe that English was Conrad's THIRD language.
