The first audio book of yours I purchased was Joseph Conrad's "Heart Of Darkness" read by Toby Stephens. When I had to read it in university I did not enjoy it much. But listening to it read by Toby Stephens made me love the novel. He brings out the intensity of the tale so well with his vivid and fascinating reading.

Classical actor and James Bond villain Toby Stephens brings his brooding intensity to Joseph Conrad’s terrifying and exhilarating exploration of evil that served as the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola’s movie Apocalypse Now. This unabridged audio book sees Conrad’s iconic characters, Marlow and Kurtz, on a journey to the very depths of human nature.
It follows Marlow as he recounts, from dusk through to late night, his adventure into the Congo transporting ivory, and his more pressing assignment - to return Kurtz in a cover up, to a group of men aboard a ship anchored in the Thames Estuary.
Heart of Darkness is available in MP3 or iPod audiobook format for you to download immediately.
