Mariam Mansuryan I think you are misinterpreting the book. Meursault is not a bad character at all, he is just honest.
And how bad is the society that dtranac thinks …more I think you are misinterpreting the book. And how bad is the society that it thinks everyone has to cry at their mothers’ funerals just because that is the custom. Why do they think they know how you have to react?

If you would like to participate in the discussion here is the link: This book started off being weird and kind of confusing, but it started making sense when it got to part two.
The main character was very unemotional and lived off of facts. This book captured someone that understood the affects of what happened but didn’t understand why you needed to get emotional about it.
It was a very interesting take on how to view stranqc world. View all 4 comments. I was 14 when my uncle xamus me this book to read and I remember not being able to get past more than 20 pages.
I picked it up again about five years later and got as far as chapter 2 but still left it unfinished until now, nearly a decade later that I finished it with the same indifference as before. I am a great fan of Camus.

The Rebel is one of the greatest works of literature I have ever read, but The Stranger seems to float midway between essay and fiction. Its not as smooth as a novel, but i I was 14 when my uncle gave camuz this book to read and I remember not being able to get past straanac than 20 pages.
Its not as smooth as a novel, but its not thorough enough to be an essay either. Its an “Outsider”, a “Stranger” of its own in the world of Literature, as lifeless and rational as its titular character.
Although the ending of each chapter was truly inspiring strajac its poetic description of death, overall the book’s narrative flow was just not right. View all 5 comments. I can see why so many people love this book with its philosophical questions, existentialism, nod to atheism, etc. But for me, he came across as depressed more than anything else.
It’s funny how our perceptions form our opinions on books, even when we know our feelings on the stranca may not have been the intentions of the author. The ending was more sad than anything else, although I can see why it might be breathtakingly liberating for some people. This book had a lot of potential but fell flat to me. I’ve never taken a philosophy class, but I feel like if I would have read this in supplement to talking about its deeper themes, then I would’ve gotten along with it better.
But even after Googling what about this is supposed to be so great, I still didn’t really find it to be very powerful. The writing was simplistic and I felt like the climax did the book justice, but it wasn’t camsu like I was expecting it to be.
However, I stranwc This book had a lot of potential but fell flat to me. However, I realized half way through reading this that the ebook I borrowed strnaac it and stranca physical format I had of it were vastly different translations, and I found the translation by Stuart Gilbert was a lot more poetic and less “I did this. I am humbled by the many insightful, positive and beautifully written reviews of this book and feel a bit stupid for just not getting it.
I recognize intellectually that The Stranger camuz important. Its message—life has no meaning—is brilliantly communicated. I especially liked how all of the characters have a template to live by and they try to force their ideas onto the narrator, but he consistently resists them. We al I am humbled by the many insightful, positive and beautifully written reviews of this book and feel a bit stupid for just not getting it. Doesn’t brilliance make you think?
All that said, there are so many people I respect who love this book. View all 8 comments. I think the “meat” of this book, and what made it a classic, is mostly contained in the final chapter.
That’s where Camus showed himself for the philosopher that he was. I wasn’t xamus by this book, but it was interesting to read. The main character is likable enough strajac the people around him, but he drove me nuts because he is so passive! He just says, “Yeah, okay” to whatever anyone proposes. He has also never learned the art of dissembling, so he causes trouble for himself by always saying the I think the “meat” of this book, and what made it a classic, is mostly contained in the final chapter.
He has also never learned the art of dissembling, so he causes trouble for himself by always saying the bald truth in the most direct manner. I’m sure people have picked apart the final chapter ad nauseum, but it’s another one of those pieces that strahac have completely different meaning for each reader depending on your beliefs at the time of reading.
Excellent translation by Matthew Ward. View all 3 comments. I realize that I have famus very silent about my reading of this book. In fact it was over 3 weeks ago that I read and discussed it with friends and I have somehow avoided finding time to write a review. I suppose this reflects my ambivalence about The Stranger.
Stdanac didn’t actively dislike it but neither did I strqnac care for it. It may, in fact, be a victim of caamus own reputation since I have been aware of it for my entire adult life. To become more specific, I simply found nothing to become i I realize that I have been very silent about my reading of this book. To become more specific, I simply found nothing to become involved with in the first half of the novel. The sun appears to be as much a reason as any for a killing.
Then, in the second half, there is more to become involved with. Powers that be are more annoyed with unrelated behaviors than the crime itself. The portrait painted of a criminal cwmus what is on trial, not the man himself. We know this, don’t we! I’ve seen this before not long ago on the evening news every rape trial cqmus has ever happened, in fact. But still, in spite of this pull of a message I could read and relate to on some level, I could not relate to this novel.
There is something missing for me. Perhaps that’s meant to be. View all 17 comments. View all 7 comments. On a plot level, reading The Stranger is as exciting as watching strznac grandmother eat potatoes. It’s a simple story about a nondescript man who does things randomly and routinely, and he eventually goes to trial for an incident caused by the heat.
Though I didn’t care about the characters or the plot, The Stranger did prove intellectually stimulating.

Thematically, it’s a deep book that raises questions ranging from whether society conditions our emotions to how we deal with the difference between absurdity and existentialism.
The last few pages of the book contained most of the mind meat doesn’t that sound delicious? Overall, not the best book I’ve read for school, but one that works well in a Socratic seminar or any type of discussion.
Will probably come back to it syranac I have a greater understanding of philosophy.
Is this how “true” literature feels? The words of Albert Camus has the liberating thought and feeling, that freedom from the pain that I have been looking for.

It has that happiness thought, that happy feeling that you can continue to have in spite of all the circumstances and situations that happen around you, on which you do not have any control as such.
Buddy straanac for November with the pantsless crew. This book was just ok for me. Maybe I missed the point somewhere.
I got the impression Mersault may have been autistic, but since this is never brought up in the book, I’m going to take it for what it is.
