The Stranger by Albert Camus
The Stranger

trublubabbe, November 12, 2006

This was one of the first books I read that started to open my eyes to something beyond conventional theology. It's an easy read with Camus's philosophy of existentialism embedded in it. It was orginially a little hard for me to undestand why the main character was so empathetic towards everything that was happening to him in the book. But after learning about Camus's philosophy on existentialism I read it again and found the book very real to human existence.
