Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic This book is a must-read. No matter how much or how little you agree with Camus' Absurdist viewpoints, the ending leaves you feeling motivated to tackle the world in front of you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A classic Camus cleverly crafts a tale about Meursault, a character devoid of apparent emotion or empathy, living in a world where he sees no meaning or purpose. Meursault's cold and often strange actions leave the reader uncomfortable and struggling to identify meaning where there is none. The 'morality' of Meursault (the 'stranger') demonstrates Camus's philosophy of absurdism where human existence has no meaning but people constantly struggle in vain for structure or meaning. Not to give away the ending, but in the end the acceptance of this finally leads to peace. A fast and easy read, full of themes and hidden meanings that you may not notice until the second reading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absurd in the best possible sense #plumreview Deceptively simple prose truly plumbs the depths of existence and all the absurdity that comes with it. The opening like relaying the protagonist's mother's death perfectly sets the tone for what's to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic This book got me not onto just Camus, but existentialism and eventually continental philosophy in general. The writing is simple, but the moral implications of the story are complex. An absolute classic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Book Camus beautifully writes on the philosophical concepts of existentialism and absurdism in the context of a compelling narrative. This is a classic of existential story-telling and a great introduction to the rest of Camus' works. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book I've recently read it, and at first found it a bit slow; but as you rea, you learn how Mersault perceives the world around him, and it's really quite interesting. The ending of course was my favourite part, the epiphany was amazing, and sort of conformed and directed the same thoughts and questions I have regarding things like religion. I'm not gonna go strangle a priest or anything, I guess I'm just trying to say I found it enlightening and enjoyable.
