Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

In the persons of Gradgrind and Bounderby, Dickens stigmatized the prevalent philosophy of utilitarianism which, whether in school or factory, allowed human beings to be caged in a dreary scenery of brick terraces and foul chimneys, to be enslaved to machines and reduced to numbers.

Liz Mikols

And don't forget that Heart of Darkness inspired the movie Apocalypse Now. I am looking forward to reading it again.


Emily Hollins

I love the imagery and syntax in this book. Very beautifully crafted with multiple motifs. Very true of society.
