The story I could absoulty have done without is The Heart of Darkness.  Not because it’s not good but because it is really long and drawn out. Plus with the amount of stuff that we had to do this last week of class, it just seemed to be too much. I feel that maybe if it was one of the first stories we would have read it would have been ok. At this point in class I am tired of reading and very much glad that this is all over. What has grabbed my attention about this story is that it does have a deeper meaning to it just as in “The death of Ivan Ilyich”. This story makes you think about  humanity of people and even yourself.
