Hola! Hope you're smiling :)
Mood: Of course Albert Camus is a highly praised author but this is the first time I was reading him. The story starts with very strong imagery of the protagonist and his visit to his mothers funeral. Stronger than the imagery is the splendid description of the protagonists feelings which are numb, void and absolutely plain. He has no feelings and the description of that no feelings part was extremely gripping, so much that I finished the book in one sitting. Then came a murder and then the judgment. It wasnt until I reached the last part of the book that I realized what a magnificent genius Albert Camus is. A terrific writer and an unconventional intellectual.
Post-Reading Thought: Camus took me to a place I had never been before. He challenged my thought and I loved the challenge. I am glad to have understood what he meant to say and glad to have picked this book up. It amazes me when books compel me to think in a way that I havent thought before.
