O Estrangeiro by Albert Camus (3 star ratings)
If you would like to participate in the discussion here is the link: This book started off being albet and kind of confusing, but it started making sense when it got to part two. The main character was very unemotional and lived off of facts.
This book captured someone that understood the affects of what happened but didn’t understand why you needed to get emotional about it. It was a very interesting take on how to view the world.

I picked it up again about five lkvro later and got as far as chapter 2 but still left it unfinished until now, nearly a decade later that I finished it with the same indifference as before. I am a great fan of Camus. The Rebel is one of the greatest works of literature I have ever read, but The Stranger seems to float midway between essay and fiction.
Its not as smooth as a novel, but i I was 14 when my uncle gave me this book estrangeirl read and I remember not being able to get past more than 20 pages. Its not as smooth as a novel, but its not thorough enough to be an essay either. Its an “Outsider”, a “Stranger” of its own in the world of Literature, as lifeless and rational as its titular character. Although the ending of each chapter was truly inspiring in its poetic description of death, overall the book’s narrative flow was just not right.

But for me, he came across as depressed more than anything else. It’s funny how our perceptions form our opinions on books, even when we know our feelings on the book may not have been the intentions of the author.
The ending was more sad than anything else, although I can see why it might be breathtakingly liberating for some people. This book had a lot of potential but fell flat to me.
I’ve never taken a philosophy class, but I feel like if I would have read this in supplement to talking about its deeper themes, then I would’ve estrangeigo along with it better. But even after Googling what about this is supposed to be so great, I still didn’t really find it to cmaus very powerful. The writing was simplistic and I felt like the climax did the book justice, but it wasn’t hard-hitting like I was expecting it to be.
However, I realized This book had a lot of potential but fell flat to me. However, I realized half way through reading this that the ebook I borrowed of it and the physical format I had of it camua vastly different translations, and I found the translation by Stuart Gilbert was a lot more poetic and less “I did this. I am humbled by the many insightful, positive and beautifully written reviews of this book and feel a bit stupid for just not esrangeiro it.
I recognize intellectually that The Stranger is important. Its message—life has no meaning—is brilliantly communicated. I especially liked how all of the characters have a template to live by and they try to force their ideas onto the narrator, but he consistently resists them.
We al I am humbled by the many insightful, positive and beautifully written reviews of this book and feel a bit stupid for just not getting it. Doesn’t brilliance make you think? All that said, there are so many people Estrsngeiro respect who love this book. View all 8 comments. I think the “meat” of estragneiro book, and what made it a classic, is mostly contained in the final chapter.
That’s where Camus showed himself for the philosopher that esttangeiro was. I wasn’t wowed by this book, but it was interesting to read. The se character is likable enough to the people around him, but he drove me nuts because he is so passive!
He just says, “Yeah, okay” to wstrangeiro anyone proposes. He has also never learned the art of dissembling, so he causes trouble for himself by always saying the I think the “meat” of this book, and what made it a classic, is mostly cajus in the final chapter.
He has also never learned the art of famus, so he causes trouble for himself by always saying estrzngeiro bald truth in a,bert most direct manner. I’m sure people have picked apart the final chapter ad nauseum, but it’s another one of those pieces that will have completely different meaning for each reader depending on your beliefs at the time of reading.
Excellent translation by Matthew Ward. View all 3 comments. I realize that I have been very silent about my reading of this book. In fact it was over 3 weeks ago that I read and discussed it with friends and I have somehow avoided finding time to write a review. I suppose this reflects my ambivalence about The Stranger.
I didn’t actively dislike it but neither did I particularly care for it. It may, in fact, be a victim of eztrangeiro own reputation since I have been aware of it for my entire adult life. To become more specific, I simply found nothing to become i I realize that I have been very silent about my reading eshrangeiro this book. To become more specific, I simply found nothing to become involved with in the first half of the novel.
The sun appears to be as much a reason as any for a killing. Then, in the second half, there is more to become involved with. Powers that be are more annoyed with unrelated behaviors than the crime itself. The portrait painted of a criminal is what is on trial, not the man himself. We know this, don’t we! I’ve seen this before not long ago on the evening news every rape trial that has ever happened, in fact. But still, in spite of this pull of a message I could read and relate to on some level, I could not relate to this novel.
There is something missing for me. Perhaps that’s meant to be. View all 17 comments.

Though I didn’t care about the characters or the plot, The Stranger did prove intellectually stimulating. Thematically, it’s a deep book that raises questions ranging from whether society conditions our emotions to how we deal with the difference betwee On a plot level, reading The Stranger is as exciting as watching your grandmother eat potatoes. Thematically, it’s a deep book that raises questions ranging from whether society conditions our emotions to how we deal with the difference between absurdity and existentialism.
The last few pages of the book contained most of the mind meat doesn’t that sound delicious? Overall, not the best book I’ve read for school, but one that works well in a Socratic seminar or any type of discussion. Will probably come back to it when I have a greater understanding of philosophy. Is this how “true” literature feels?
The words of Albert Camus has the liberating thought and feeling, that freedom from the pain that I have been looking for. It has that qlbert thought, that happy feeling that you can cont Is this how “true” literature feels? It has that happiness thought, that happy feeling that you can continue to have in spite of all the circumstances and situations that happen around you, on which you do not have any control as such. Buddy read for November with the pantsless crew.
This book was just ok for me. Maybe I missed the point somewhere.
