Heart of Darkness - Joseph Conrad

Didn't like it, didn't get it, won't be using it.

Right from the beginning, this book seemed flawed to me. Some sailors are sitting around, waiting for something to happen, right? And one of them starts talking. And talking. And talking. And he tells the whole book. And no-one interrupts him, and nothing else happens.

This would not happen. Never. Ever.

Whatever else happens in books, once I realise that they are written in this way, I can't forgive them.

So no. I don't think Heart of Darkness is for me.
