My Book Review
Who wrote this book
What is this book about?
The title of this book is “The Stranger” written by Albert Camu , who was a french philosopher and author. He was born in 1913 and he won the Nobel Prize of literature in 1957.
The main character is Meusault. In the beginning of this book he learns about the death of his mother and at her funeral he doesn’t express the expected emotions of grief. Actually he is a strange man who feels nothing for other people. Later, in the plot he kills a man, he gets arrested and goes into the prison. There he passes the time sleeping all day, showing passivity. He simply admites that he was never able to feel any emotions for anything in his life.
He lived as a soulles monster and after the crime, by being publichy guillotined.
My Favourite part
This book seems realy wierd. It’s difficult for someone who has lots of feeling in his soul to read such a book. The main character is a tragic person, who lives as a stranger to his self and he has to face things as death,justice,absurd,isolation and emptiness.
How many stars?
I give this book
Do you recommend this book?
I think the author is very intelligent, because it’s difficult to write about a character as Meursault.
