I read this short novella out of duty, fully expecting dated, colonialist tripe. Instead, I found a multi-layered text which is, in my mind, eerily timeless.

Conrad's descriptions of the Thames and the Congo are dark and atmospheric. With his almost modern, ironic take on himself and the world, protagonist Marlow is not as naive as he would like us to think. Conrad is very cagey.

The audio was well done, but the language is so very rich and complex that one often needs to stop and read the text to fully appreciate what Conrad's doing.
