Heart of Darkness, by Joseph Conrad: not Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski’s first language.

English was not Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski’s first language. And my does it show! He clearly cannot write decent English prose. This book is meaningless twaddle and is best consigned to the dustbin. Good on those Amazon reviewers who have had the courage to speak out. For those singing its praises I hear whisperings of the Emperor’s Clothes.
