From AudioFile
In HEART OF DARKNESS, Marlow, the narrator, undertakes both an outer and an inner journey. The outer journey takes him into the heart of Africa, where he encounters representatives of every colonial stripe. Performing the work instead of simply reading it, Scott Brick emphasizes this aspect of Conrad''s classic, clearly conveying class differences and a range of foreign accents, as well as pidgin. Conrad''s prose is dense and complex, but Brick delivers it smoothly and gracefully. However, Marlow''s inner journey--during which he confronts the mysterious Mr. Kurtz--remains too distant and intellectualized to fully capture the emotional charge of the moment.
