Nausea is the story of Antoine Roquentin, a French writer who is horrified at his own existence. In impressionistic, diary form he ruthlessly catalogs his every feeling and sensation. His thoughts culminate in a pervasive, overpowering feeling of nausea which “spreads at the bottom of the viscous puddle, at the bottom of our time—the time of purple suspenders and broken chair seats; it is made of wide, soft instants, spreading at the edge, like an oil stain.”Winner of the 1964 Nobel Prize in Literature (though he declined to accept it),Jean-Paul Sartre, philosopher, critic, novelist, and dramatist, holds a position of singular eminence in the world of French letters. La Nausée, his first and best novel, is a landmark in Existential fiction and a key work of the twentieth century.

3.0 La Nausée
Maybe I just wasn't ready for it.J'ai commander La nausée avec l'intention de améliorer mes abilités en la langue Française... J'ai aimer quoi j'ai lu, mais j'ai pas fini le lire. C'etait un combinaison de la difficulté orthographical (selon moi) pis mon bas interêt de la sujet.
