The Stranger by Albert Camus
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book really led me into bunch of questions.
What makes me a sad the most is how being “stranger” in society might be misinterpreted by society and cause us problem. The main character simply doesn’t play with societal rules, he is being true to himself, he say what he is, and he refuses to lie. As a result, the society feel threatened, and his life ended up tragically.
It is sad because some of us might experience the position of being “the stranger”, and we have to act like “the normal” in order to be accepted by society. It is sad because we have enough freedom to realize we’re in a cage, but not quite enough freedom to escape from it.
