"Since we're all going to die, it's obvious that when and how don't matter." This quote from Albert Camus' The Stranger (also known as The Outsider), literally defines the exact opposite of what my view on life is. I felt a huge amount of difficulty and [INSERT WORD] reading this novel for my junior year English class. The main character, Mersault irrationally kills a man, and shows no remorse whatsoever. Once he is thrown in jail, he shares his thoughts with the readers, explaining that he wouldn't care if had died at that very moment. Life to him is meaningless, and the fact that he does not fear death made reading this book fill my head with questions. Are there truly people out there who wake up each morning thinking that there is no point in living, and that it does not matter when the end comes? Can people kill others this easily? Although it baffled me at first to believe that individuals like that exist, it also made me come to realization that this isn't a perfect world. There is much flaws in it, and for that reason, we have to accept all the views of everyone. As surprising as it was to view life from a different point of view, every individual has the right to their own perspective.Harsh criticism/Revisions are welcomed!
