Through the story of an ordinary man unwittingly drawn into a senseless murder on an Algerian beach, Camus explored what he termed "the nakedness of man faced with the absurd." First published in 1946; now in a new translation by Matthew Ward.

I loved this book. I had to read it for school and by the cover i thought it was going to be a boring book but i was totally wrong. Once i started I couldn't stop.

Strongly recommend it
People had been telling me to read "the stranger" for quite some time and I finally decided to read it today. It was a jarring, moving read that will draw you in and before you know it, it's over. I feel as if I will have to re-read it to fully grasp the tone and voice of the book, but it I will enjoy it again all the same!

Brilliant! I'm going to read it again immediately.
This book created a hatred for Camus literature that I did not intend to have. There was no theme or interesting prose.
Its been a long time...
A book that would dangle in your mind for long time...
This book I would say is unique. One of those books you have to read. I would recommend this book!! :)
Meaningless of Human Life
Very good!!! It is a must read!! The main character is unique and will never be seen anywhere else except for here.
This is great read! I am glad that this literary work was part of my class reading, otherwise I would have never been exposed to the point of view of Camus. I am sure we can all relate to parts of Meursault, and acknowledge the indifference the world shares with us.
