L. R. B., November 23, 2008 (view all comments by L. R. B.)
For the philosophically curious, or those who have read all the big named works of Existentialism, this is an awesome read. Volume two gets most of the attention, but this work is really rather profound. If you are wondering about the bigger questions in life, this is a lovely work.
