I bought a heap of Joseph Conrad books last summer from Barter Books in Alnwick (coolest book shop in the World), including Heart of Darkness. I've read it before but gave the copy away. Apocalypse Now is my favourite film of all time. You can spot parts of the book that were included in the film. Especially the death of Chief Phillips - 'A spear'. It's only a short novel, so if you are a fan of the film, at least read the book to compare them. I read 'The Rover' last year. Great story but ruined by a terrible film adaptation. I've just finished Typhoon & I'm currently reading The Shadow-Line.
