I understand this book was the underlying inspiration for Apocolypse Now, which makes total sense. Well worth the time to read.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this classic. It is uncomfortable being reminded of how easily one can slip away into the darkness, given the right circumstances and horrific to be reminded of the potential inhumanity of man in the pursuit of personal or national goals. But it is wise to know what we are capable of so that we can guard against it in our own personal and national lives
I found myself engaged from beginning to end. Beautiful writing and well told
The narration was rather flat so I kept finding that I had been distracted from the story
Loved the narrator
98% blaaa blaaa blaaaaa, Horrible, rambling, confusing mess
2% interesting story.
I did not like the narrator’s style at all. After listening 30 minutes, I couldn’t continue. The narrator’s intonation did not reflect the emotion of the character’s. It was a forced up and down in expression, that was annoying, consistently fast paced ruthenium and in a monotone wave. Compare the reading to Tom Hanks in Dutch House. No comparison! I should have listened to a preview prior to purchasing it!
What I didn't get was why the narrator admired Kurtz so much. I didn't hear much about the man.
Classic book narrated excellently.
an interesting look at the darkest recesses in the human mind.
It just couldn’t keep me engaged. I think it’s the narration. That story should have been a whole lot more captivating than that
Intense drama. It deserves to be a movie. I recommend.
there are some great great passages in this book and it is worth reading for these alone. having said that I did struggle to focus on some of the detail in this book. However I did find the narrative style very unique and like I said particular powerful at times. I did find the narration a little odd, dower and drawn out with a strange intonation. but not sufficiently so to ruin the book.
It was difficult to follow with the narrators toward the end. I stopped listening
