A French ClassicReviewed in the United Kingdom on 1 September 2017
I am learning French which is the language of L'étranger. The text is quite accessible and direct, which makes it a good book for a student of French. The story itself seems simple but is quite ambiguous and gives you a lot to think about. It is a classic of French literature and quite different in its themes than in English writing, in my opinion. Reading it in French makes it even more mysterious to me and adds a lot to the enjoyment.

World significanceReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 March 2019
Don't take this novel at face value. The story is just a story. But the concepts behind it move our collective consciousness forward by half a century.

DemoralisingReviewed in the United Kingdom on 30 January 2020
The take home message is "why question yourself about life? Just take it as it comes because it's meaningless anyway"
I love this bookReviewed in the United Kingdom on 29 February 2016
I've taught this book at A level many times and never tire of it. Superficially simple, but deep, moving and thought provoking. I love it; pure genius!
