This book takes you to an Algerian city that wakes up to confront pests in the form of rats and the bubonic plague. The story has bee well developed by Camus who manages to weave a masterful tale of desire, frustration as well as the urge to live no matter the cost to one’s self. The book manages to highlight the fact that when faced with certain stressors we often tend to give all the societal norms and conventions a miss. A beautifully developed novel from start to finish which is why it is ranked as one of Albert Camus best books.
