Albert Camus

I don’t know how acquainted you are with Camus‘ work and life but he is definitely my most favourite author.

Albert Camus was born in 1913 in Algeria and died in 1960 in a car accident. With his tragic death, the world had lost a great mind. Nevertheless, Camus had a very interesting and productive life. He is one of the youngest Nobel Prize recipients – in 1957, at the age of 44 he won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Albert Camus was a philosopher, author and journalist. He started from the bottom and reached the stars on his own. If you want to find more about his life and work you can visit Wikipedia. Here you would find some information about one of his most popular and so far my personal favourite books: The Stranger.

The Stranger is one an amazing work of art. It is one long – short book. What I mean is that the book itself is only 123 pages, depending on the edition, but it took me more than 3 days to finish it. I have read and reread it several times since my teenage years and by now I know it almost by heart. It is and always will be my most favourite book ever. I would always recommend it to everyone. Every time I open the book I find inside something new, some answer to a new question that I have not thought to ask so far.

Other famous works by Camus are The Plague and The Fall. They are both very, very good. Camus’ books are one of the few that I buy on paper, and not in e-book format, since I want to have them for future reference.

My greatest regret is that there would never be another book by the genius Albert Camus.
