Absolutely brilliant. The last sentence gave me chills.

I liked this book set in 1940s Algeria. Mersault's isolation and indifference to others and his own fate was creepy and thought-provoking.

Book Diary 2020 (112 books items)

" After that, everything seemed to happen so fast, so deliberately, so naturally that I don't remember any of it anymore. Except for one thing: as we entered the village, the nurse spoke to me. She had a remarkable voice which didn't go with her face at all, a melodious, quavering voice. She said, "If you go slowly, you risk getting sunstroke. But if you go too fast, you work up a sweat and then catch a chill inside the church." She was right. There was no way out. I wanted to smoke a cigarette"

"A chillingly laconic, distanced, almost anti-emotional story of internal existential emptiness manifesting itself with expected consequences."
