The Heart of Darkness is Very Thought Provoking!!

When I had to read this book for class, I wanted to cry. It was so dry and long that I considered dropping the class to be able to actually live without the pain of reading that book everyday. However, as I got into the book, the symbolism and details of the jungle made me appreciate the book. Every line could be taken as symbolism and the message is very powerful. If you read this book, stick with it! It is very rewarding in the end.

Powerful Novel

This book had a lot of powerful meanings and themes that will leave readers shocked and question their entire existence. However, the persecution of the African Americans by the Europeans and the deep content might turn off younger readers. Happy Reading!!
