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 in Wikipedia:

Quote:
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.
