Un homme face à l'absurdité de la vie, le plus célèbre roman d'Albert Camus

L'Étranger est un jeune homme qui semble à part, sans réaction apparente, indifférent à sa vie même. Albert Camus dépeint là un être sensible, proche de la nature, mais incapable de suivre les conventions sociales. Il est "vrai ", dit ce qu'il pense sans nuance, se souciant peu des réactions qu'il suscite. Ce décalage le mènera à sa perte. Défini comme un roman philosophique, L'Étranger parle de l'absurdité de la vie, thème cher à l'auteur.

Dans ce livre audio, le comédien Michael Lonsdale prête sa voix à L'Étranger. Il en restitue avec finesse la personnalité décalée, d'apparence froide. Par sa distance, il vous invite à méditer sur votre propre existence.

Summary

"18 juillet. Hier à midi, sur la plage de Tipaza, un employé de bureau dénommé Meursault, demeurant rue Bab-Azoun à Alger, a tué de cinq balles de revolver un Arabe non encore identifié. Les motifs du crime restent inconnus. Arrêté, Meursault a été transféré à la prison d'Alger." Jugé, reconnu coupable de meurtre avec préméditation, condamné à mort et exécuté, on ne saura jamais pourquoi Meursault a tué. Il assiste à son procès comme si c'était un autre qu'on jugeait. Une profonde réflexion sur l'être et la vie.

something wrong?

What would have made L'Étranger better?

it starts with something unintelligible , then weird music for a while and then it appears to start randomly, so first time it started halfway through and since it goes back to the start which is pretty annoying, normally when you log back in the next day it carries on where you eft of

Nice story but boringly read and too much music

The story is good but the narrator seems to be sleeping while reading. Also far too much music playing. We buy the book to have the story read to us, not to have so much bad music at the end of every chapter (30 seconds every time, very irritating)

Wonderful interpretation

The narrator's Meursault is queerly monotonous and chillingly calm throughout. The pathological character is thus brilliantly brought to life.
