Maybe this is what Camus was aiming for? The absurdity of judgement? I don’t know but I think I took this book to be a short quick novel that I could breeze through, instead it’s more like a full blown piece of philosophy (in the form of literature); it requires a hell of a lot more attention than I was willing to give it.
Camus seems to be a writer you need to read when in a particular mindset. The Outsider had an extremely powerful impact on me when I read it but I felt I just didn’t quite get The Fall. I’m definitely going to need to read this again soon, and once I do I have a feeling this rating may dramatically increase.
