While reading Conrad all I can think is, "Can I just skip this and watch Apocolypse Now?"

Yeah, it grows on you. Sometimes days I think it grows like fungus, sometimes I actually do appreciate it. He seems to be very conscious of consistently inverting good and evil, dark and light. Some days I appreciate how every little image and phrase compliments these motifs, how each line seems to be carefully crafted. Some days I think it's overkill. I do have to say that it's one of those books that is dense which I think allows for much great discussion of the ideas in the book but doesn't necessarily make for a pleasurable read. Oh, and welcome to the postmodern world, eh? It's impossible for me to imagine this book except through the lens of Apocalypse Now too.

I think I had to get about half way through it to get "into" it. It's definetly a book that needs to be discussed as you are reading it, as it encourages you to drift away from the text pretty often. I also feel like I would have been better off to study up on imperialism and British expansion as I was reading. I can see why honors lit teachers like to teach it, and I'm glad for the experience, but now it's time to see Brando goes crazy.
