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.
View all The Stranger reviews
The Stranger, also published in English as The Outsider, is a 1942 novella written by French author Albert Camus. The first of Camus' novels published in his lifetime, the story follows Meursault, an indifferent settler in French Algeria, who, weeks after his mother's funeral, kills an unnamed Arab man in Algiers. The story is divided into two parts, presenting Meursault's first-person narrative before and after the killing.

"de 5/10 para 7/10 um exemplo de romance psicológico no ápice, acredito que Mersault é acima de tudo um sociopata depressivo, uma combinação estranha que funciona, é como essas novelas estilo memórias do subsolo."

" 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."
