This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I didn't really know what to make of it honestly & I didn't expect this story when I picked it up - I mean, there were parts I found interesting—well, really, the whole thing was interesting once Charlie MArlow heard more about Kurtz and was finally going to meet him, like it was all leading to something, like some kind of mystery and then Kurtz himself was...i don't know.
at times it was kinda like reading a stream of consciousness

So Charlie Marlow tells his friends the story of when he was I didn't really know what to make of it honestly & I didn't expect this story when I picked it up - I mean, there were parts I found interesting—well, really, the whole thing was interesting once Charlie MArlow heard more about Kurtz and was finally going to meet him, like it was all leading to something, like some kind of mystery and then Kurtz himself was...i don't know.
at times it was kinda like reading a stream of consciousness

So Charlie Marlow tells his friends the story of when he was a steamboat captain on the River Congo in Africa - and meeting Mr. Kurtz. & the Company wanting to make money & the 'agents' and people trying to make themselves a fortune off of the ivory - and the enslaved black men who worked for the white men and died when they couldn't work anymore & it made the racism feel almost...not pitiful, but something inevitable, in a way - how people use each other for their own greed and their own purposes & we all have our own goals and shit, & (to me) how there's a darkness living in all us - the level to which we'll stoop for own desires. So Marlow goes on the steamboat down the River Congo to find Kurtz & there's some great imagery with the jungle & how it's like this heart of darkness and stuff - & the wildness of the black men, how they were so different but also human, like the white men - their steamboat's attacked & all the people (the black people) follow Kurtz & they're his followers - he meets this Russian dude who knows Kurtz & helped his through his sickness & leaves before he's killed - he finally meets Kurtz, whose thin & ill &Kurtz says they don't wanna save him but the ivory & the money & they take Kurtz back with them - there was some stuff on the soul & how Kurtz's soul wasn't bound by rules, belief of fear but struggled with itself - Kurtz dies on the steamboat & Marlow heard his last words; his judgement of the world 'the horror! the horror!' & before dying, Kurtz gave Marlow some of his papers & Marlow returns back home where people from the Company show up and want the papers but he doesn't give it to them - a reporter shows up as well & he goes to see Kurtz's Intended, who says she loved him & understood him better than anyone & when she asks what Kurtz's last words were, he lies & says he spoke her name & thinks the truth would've been too dark, too painful.

Maybe I need to revisit this in a few years or something. Don't know if it'll make more sense then but then again, it was just (insert adjective here) and i don't know how to really describe it. ...more
