I read this book last year, it was one of the books I had to read for school and I never thought it can be a nice one. It's not very interesting to read, but it has a real story that amazed me. It's hard to understand because being indifferent about everything in your life, even for mother's death or killing, is not very understandable for normal people. Even in prison he was so indifferent that he didn't care about anything, he was just feeling more bored than in the normal times when he was free, he just never felt alive. On the end was the first time he felt like a human being and alive, but it was too late to change the past - this is actually what we all feel when consequences of our deeds come to us, but we don't always pay them with our lives. I suppose this is what this book was about, because I don't think someone can be sentenced to death for being indifferent on a funeral and for killing a single human.

The stranger by Albert Camus is one of my favorite books, I read it from an early age and several times after that, I still enjoy it every time
