Heart of Darkness

Title: Heart of Darkness
Author: Joseph Conrad
Publisher: Kobo
ISBN: ebook
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges:  Why Buy the Cow? (Kobo), 100 Books in a Year

Thoughts: I tried to read this when it was on my summer reading list in high school; I think I got to the third page before I gave up. This time, I toughed it out to the end. The story was not bad, but just dry. It actually felt more like an essay or memoir than a story. Conrad does play with some interesting concepts, and I guess that is why it is a classic.
