A Quick Tip by cpw1952

  • Dec 22, 2010
Meursault is a clerk in Algiers, an intentionally non-descript young man with no particularly interesting traits, characteristics, skills or habits. Now considered to be mandatory reading for those interested in notions of existential or nihilist philosophy, Albert Camus' "The Outsider" or "L'√Čtranger" is the story of Meursault's life. Rather dark, bleak stuff but I think that's rather on purpose.

As a teen, this was my number one favorite book. I cried so hard at one part of the story. I read it later, much later, and it wasn't nearly as impactful as it was back then, but still an excellent book.
