  • Stranger (Recorded Books) – Audiobook CD (2005)
    by Albert Camus


    Audiobook CD, Recorded Books

    ISBN: 1419337319
    ISBN-13: 9781419337314

    A young Algerian, Meursault, afflicted with a sort of aimless inertia, becomes embroiled in the petty intrigues of a local pimp and, somewhat inexplicably, ends up killing a man. Once he's imprisoned and eventually brought to trial, his crime, it becomes apparent, is not so much the arguably defensible murder he has committed as it is his deficient character. The trial's proceedings are absurd, a parsing of incidental trivialities--that Meursault, for instance, seemed unmoved by his own mother's death and then attended a ... Show more

The Existential Camus

by artzau on Sep 6, 2012

The Stranger is, alas, the title which is most often used for L'Étranger, the novel written by the randy Albert Camus, but that's misleading as the meaning in French is 'The Foreigner,' or by metaphoric implication, one can say, 'The Outsider.' The individual and society was one of the issues that ... More

The Pageturner

Character Possesses Hardened Soul

by The Pageturner on Oct 23, 2009

Though short, this book packs much frusration into it's pages. I have never encountered a character like this before. It's as if he has embodied nihilism, only moreso. The main character does not appear to respond to emotional reactions, but physical ones. There is an anxiety in reading about this ... More


intense and two levels !

by AnnieLou on Feb 19, 2008

This book won Camus the Nobel Prize in 1957. It is a tale that must be analyzed on two levels. The first level is the simple relating of mans misadventures: Meursault is the young man who makes choices that affect his ultimate destiny, beginning with his mothers funeral, a friends request and a senseless ...

Mersault - ou est-il maintenant?

by BookMiser on Feb 8, 2008

Camus wastes no time is striking his reader with awe. No grief strikes Mersault upon discovering his mother's death. He is modern literature's most low-energy character and the greatest representative of absurdity in philosophy. Camus followed the work with an ideological explanation shortly after in ... More
