  1. You make such smart choices! 🙂 Heart of Darkness is one of the many books that I have read just a few pages of and have put it aside with the thought of one day reading it. It reads oddly at first and it seems confusing. Usually these things work out once one goes far enough into the book, but at three stars, it may not be worth fiddling with.

    1. It was a confusing read because I did so enjoy the language but the story itself was just … meh. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it to anyone, except when you’re interested in this kind of modern classic. It is worth the try, though, it is just my opinion, haha!
