AP Reading List – Book-A-Day: Plague

Another Albert Camus novel for our #Book-A-Day choice: The Plague.  Author:  Albert Camus

Category:  Fiction

Overview: Camus explores human nature through their reactions as they experience the life as it is decimated of the plague.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A plague decimates the city of Oran and this novel tells the story of those swept up in it.  A wonderful exploration of how our lives are not always within our control.  It is not an easy read, but the effort is worth it.”

Ethan: “Before I read The Plague, I never placed much thought in disease or outbreaks as being relevant to myself. Camus helps show how flawed that line of thinking is and how much of life, despite what we may think, is outside our control.”
