Re: Albert Camus - The Stranger
wow - this is really weird

A friend of mine, the other day "urged" me to read this book, b/c she noticed Jake Gilenhal (sp?) reading it in "Jarhead" - and she had forgotten about this book. She bought a spare copy and immediately gave it to me

I read it pretty much in one sitting (airport layover)

I loved the book, although - I feel like I need to reread the ending part where he's yelling at the priest. It was funny, though how most of the arguments my g/f and I have are basically that I can tend to act overly non-chalant, like the main character is during the first half of the novel (like saying he didn't love his g/f, etcv etc)
