Publisher's Summary

With millions of copies sold, The Stranger is one of the most widely read novels in the world. It stands as perhaps the greatest existentialist tale ever conceived.

When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. 

This remarkable translation by Matthew Ward has been considered the definitive English version since its original publication.

Stranger

Very unusual story. The author gets into the psyche of person unaffected by social norms.

Jonathan Davis makes it alive

Many claim it to be overrated but I guess you've to go through something similar at least to understand the depth of this wonderful book. Not for all

Philosophy is more important than story.

Philosophy about life and work of words better put together. You will definitely think deep after reading NoT listening.

The narration keeps the essence intact!

It is somewhat understood that only seasoned readers of philosophy who are more or less aware of Camus' works would come to listen to this. I was very happy to discover that the narration keeps the mood and essence of the book intact.

We remain strangers to ourselves

The great French author &philosopher, Camus, whose big fan I am, tells how the life has no meaning, it is absurd to find any meaning and the whole life, one remains a stranger to oneself!
Worth a reading, meaning listening to!!!

Existentialism in fiction

Fantastic book dealing with deeper questions of life and existence made better by including a conversation about the various interpretations of Camus’ writing by a philosophy professor

Aimless story

The story just goes on without any background of the character's past. There is no purpose in writing this book without reference to the past. Extremely dull and aimless. Or maybe the gist is lost in the translation.
