AP Reading List – Book-A-Day: The Stranger

Here's a suggestion for AP reading material - The Stranger by Albert Camus.  #Book-A-DayAuthor:  Albert Camus

Category:  Fiction

Overview: The story of the eventual downfall of a man who cares little.

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “A good example of absurdist literature, this book is tough to read.  The protagonist is unpleasant; the story is sad; nothing is resolved.  Read this because life can be just that way sometimes.”

Ethan: “The Stranger looks at how rash decisions can alter the course of person’s life. However, beyond that simple observation, Camus takes readers on a journey that demonstrates the little, yet powerful, steps toward the fatal plunge.”
