I enjoyed this one although it was sometimes a little difficult to grasp meaning in the narrative.
I was thinking while reading that there was a real echo of this novel in Apocalypse Now
. OK - maybe it is a common fact for those more educated in such matters, but I was quite shocked after completing this novel to read the following under Apocalypse Now
The screenplay by John Milius and Coppola came from Milius's idea of adapting Joseph Conrad's novella Heart of Darkness into the Vietnam War era.
At least I wasn't so confused as to miss the similarity.
OK - another indie novel now. This time, it's David Michael's Gunwitch: A Tale Of The King's Coven
. I've enjoyed the other books I've read from this author so I'm interested to see what effect this one has on me.
