Detachment. Misunderstood. An outsider. The first time I read Albert Camus's The Outsider (also known as The Stranger for U.S. publication), I was recommended that this was his best work. With over a little 100 over pages, divided into two parts, this is a story of Meursault, a man that doesn't conn...
Philosophical Musings of a Book Nerd
When I was a lot younger one of my favourite bands was The Cure. I remember sitting in my lounge room with my friends with The Cures greatest hits ablum blaring out and as soon as the tape came to an end I would jump up, and immediately flick it over onto the otherside, and press play before my neig...

This book annoyed me so much, and I had such a difficult time placing my thoughts into words, that I haven't written a book review in two months. It just froze my process entirely. And if that's not a review in and of itself I'm not sure what is. First off, I should say that I read this book right...

For most of this book, I just wanted to get the guy a pair of sunglasses and one of those little fans you wear around your neck, and perhaps suggest that he stay indoors midday.

Really short and simple book, but so good. Makes you think about life, time and what are we doing with it without making a big deal out it.

I enjoyed the story. The The funeral part got me hocked. Then the second part was very good. Though I feel that I did not get the most out of this book. I'm pretty sure there's more to be gained than what I got! The question as to why he should feel anything, was very interesting, and slightly distu...

I did read this book a while ago & thinking I should read Camus' book on suicide first before I can gather my thought & review. But then of course I didn't finish reading that book & now The Stranger is only an image from a distant past. And the reason I remember about it again is because BBC WBC's ...

Gloomy!It's the darkest kind of Outsiders I've ever read about. I won't argue whether Meursault - the protagonist - have a soul or not, but I'm sure that he sees the world differently and feels differently. His perspective is summarized in the following lines:“I have never been able really to regret...
