The Stranger

The Stranger - Albert Camus,  Matthew    Ward It is a book that shows what is inside the mind of a person who thinks living is absurd, (At first I really thought he is a psychopath, 'cause from what I noticed, he is cold-blooded, indifferent to people and apathetic. He is taciturn but is intelligent and speaks honestly).He was very indifferent with his mother's death, nothing seems interests him, and nothing is important to him, even his own life, or the life of others, and he doesn't even bother to think if he believes in God or not, just because the thought of thinking about it doesn't interest him.Even at the brink of his death, waiting for his own condemnation, he was only interested on how the guillotine works, or if there would be any loophole in which he can escape his inevitable death. Repentance did not even pass his mind, as would other criminal would probably think before their execution.I really don't know if I like him or not, well it really doesn't matter.
