The horror! The horror! Let's hope they don't run into either Marlow or Kurtz. Conrad would roll in his grave if that happened... But... Then again... SERVES HIM RIGHT! I remember reading HEART OF DARKNESS; I didn't enjoy it. I remember writing a long essay on HEART OF DARKNESS; I didn't enjoy that either. Of course, you're probably thinking that since you're not really enjoying this story that I have no right to complain about long-dead writers. Or... You're wondering as to why I'm even mentioning Conrad's famous work. Why did I bring him up?
