Honestly so far the story is very intriguing to me. The story is chok full of dark and mysterious imagery that, at least in my case, totally made me extremely curious of what exactly was going on. Truly a "dark and somber" masterpiece.
I loved the novella, at first I couldn't keep along with what was happening but after a kept reading even myself wanted to find what happened to Mr.Kurts that wanted to stayed in the inner station. The novella has a tone of sinister and mysterious throughout Marlow's journey up river. One of my favorites lines was when Marlow said while sailing he was getting deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness, this made it more interesting and mysterious.
In my opinion, Conrad really describes in a ironic way the topic of imperialism that in his time was pretty popular in Europe. The author receive a lot of bad opinions from this novel because of how he writes in a bad way the actions and attitudes of the Africans but in my point of view he was only trying to create emphasis. In his novel "Heart of Darkness" Conrad was trying to make realistic his view of imperialism by letting descriptions as a European in that time will tell them. The whole travel was a very profound meaning of how not was only a physical journey but also a mental journey to Marlow.
