If so i'm about to order it on the ipad...

So we should at the very lest have a month to read the book. I'm a full time student plus I'm in the military so the only time I have to really read it is during lunch and before I hit the sack at night.

It's 70 pages :0 OF hell on earth reading.

I remember reading this book in high school and using the spark notes as a supplement. The book was good nonetheless!

I'm not in the book club but once i saw Heart of Darkness in the title i just had to come in here lol. I hated that book with a passion. We read it in high school and it was difficult for me to stay interested and keep along lol. It may be a good book, but it was a hard read for me. Granted that was a few years ago so maybe if i pick the book up now i'd think differently

The Nellie, a cruising yawl, swung to her anchor
without a flutter of the sails, and was at rest. The flood had
made, the wind was nearly calm, and being bound down
the river, the only thing for it was to come to and wait for
the turn of the tide.


Just to be sure, that's how the book begins right? Wanna make sure my copy is correct
