Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad (Free Audio Book)
Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad – A free audiobook
Read by Kristin LeMoine
Heart of Darkness, written by Joseph Conrad, details the fine line between barbarism and civilization and how the two can almost be so terrifyingly close to each other no matter how far we advance our society. Heart of Darkness is in fact based on Conrad’s own experience during his expedition in the Congo which makes this an even more frightening story.
This free audiobook edition of Heart of Darkness is told from the point of view of Marlow, a ship’s captain who was sent in with his company to bring back Kurtz, who disobeyed direct orders and vanished into the thick jungle. This will take Marlow into a journey that will show him the depths of man’s depravity and darkness and will also show him his own darkest instincts.
Heart of Darkness has been adapted into numerous mediums, none more famous than the 1979 film Apocalypse Now starring Marlon Brando and Martin Sheen.
