I wasn't sure what to think when I first started reading this. It initially didn't feel worthy of the fuss, but as it enters the second part, it becomes a book that makes you think. Why are some ... Read full review

Spoiler alert! Not that it matters anyway, but don’t read this review if you don’t already know how it all ends. The Stranger is a perfect book, with a flawed philosophy. Camus is a liar. If he really ... Read full review

As a dilettante translator I find this book fascinating, even though I don’t read French. Literary texts are sacred and you cannot alter them; translations on the other hand are a more or less ... Read full review

Really short and simple book, but so good. Makes you think about life, time and what are we doing with it without making a big deal out it. Read full review
