In the past 15 years, I have now read "The Stranger" 3 times - And with each reading I have found that this masterfully-written, short novel has never ceased to impress me with its vivid, thought-provoking narrative.

In my opinion - Novelist Albert Camus has undoubtedly written an exceptional story here of personal indifference where the reader can completely understand the main character's motives and acceptance for committing the unspeakable, unprovoked crime of cold-blooded murder.

*Author note* - Born in Algiers (in 1913) into extreme poverty - Albert Camus grew up and rose beyond this obstacle to become one of the principal forces in 20th century literature.

"The Stranger" (which was written in 1942) is considered to be one of Camus' first important works.

In 1960 (at the age of 46), Albert Camus was tragically killed in a car accident.
