5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide!!!
This has got to be one of the best guides to probably one of the most complicated novels in English Literature. I've been studying Heart of Darkness for my AS English Literature coursework, and York Notes has enormously helped with condensing the rich language into relevant, simple information as to what each 'episode' in each chapter are about.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing
I found this York notes disappointing compared to York notes on other literature. The style of writing and structure of the sections is poor. In particular it did not bring the clarity I would expect from the York Notes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide!!!, 10 Feb 2011
This review is from: Heart of Darkness: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
This has got to be one of the best guides to probably one of the most complicated novels in English Literature. I've been studying Heart of Darkness for my AS English Literature coursework, and York Notes has enormously helped with condensing the rich language into relevant, simple information as to what each 'episode' in each chapter are about. The critical analysis and the themes are fantastic, and contain a great deal of detailed information about the novella. For those who are studying Heart of Darkness at A Level, at University or just desire a great deal of knowledge to the book by Conrad, this is a must get!!!

This review is from: Heart of Darkness: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
Great book! It will help you tremendously if you need to analyse this very difficult to understand novel, Heart of Darkness. It gives you everything you need to fully analyse and understand the novel with depth. Also, gives you an idea of how a written commentary relating to the novel should look like. The format is great diving it between narrative structure, character analysis, themes.. Etc. everything you need! I highly recommend it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the actual book, 15 Oct 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heart of Darkness: York Notes Advanced (Paperback)
I might be a bit silly but I purchased this book thinking it was the actual Heart of Darkness book. Its just additional notes for students who want to understand the book.
