The Stranger - Albert Camus - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book The Stranger:

The musings of an unemotional murderer.

My favorite Albert Camus quote from the book:

"It is better to burn than to disappear."

Questions I pondered while reading The Stranger:

Can apathy cause damage?

Is it easier to condemn the odd?

My thoughts about The Stranger:

Apathy is cold.

Following social rules is important.

Friends don't help friends retaliate against exes.
