The Stranger

By Albert Camus - Rating: 7/10

A short, quick read that goes by even faster because of the blunt writing (or blunt translation as the case may be). A guy’s mother dies, he meets a girl, makes a friend, kills an Arab, is sentenced to die, the end. I guess the point here is that no matter how crazy life is, sit back and appreciate the absurdity of it all and go on living. I don’t know, there’s probably more to it than that but I’m no scholar.
