The Stranger by Albert Camus

My Rating: 0 stars

Cover Rating: 2/10 it’s whatever nothing special about it. Doesn’t relate to the story at all. It’s just a basic design.

Number of Pages: 123

Received: I read it from my Libby Library


(The Sypnosis and hearing that this book was a ‘classic’ is why I picked this book up.. however reading it, that’s not at all what this book is)

With the intrigue of a psychological thriller, Camus’s masterpiece gives us the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach.

Behind the intrigue, Camus explores what he termed “the nakedness of man faced with the absurd” and describes the condition of reckless alienation and spiritual exhaustion that characterized so much of twentieth-century life.”

My Angry thoughts:

I did a thread on Twitter about this book and I thought I’d just put that here. This book makes me so angry and I don’t want to put any extra energy into it then I already did. I don’t understand why it’s so well liked. It’s so bad.

All in All:

This book is trash. There are so many better books that explore nihilism and in better ways. Hell you want good Nihilism check out Bojack Horseman on Netflix where yes shit goes down and it’s bad, but there is deep consequences in it. It’s not just a whatever about everything just to be whatever about things. It’s a far more meaningful and nuanced story that I loved to watch.
