Today’s Audible Deal of the Day is not to be missed, whether you’re a student or simply a lover of literature. Albert Camus’ The Stranger (4/5 stars) is a necessary part of any modern cultural education, and TODAY ONLY (11/7/14) you can get it for just $1.95 (or one Audible credit) in the Audible audiobook edition.
Albert Camus’ The Stranger is one of the most widely read novels in the world, with millions of copies sold. It stands as perhaps the greatest existentialist tale ever conceived, and is certainly one of the most important and influential books ever produced. Now, for the first time, this revered masterpiece is available as an unabridged audio production.
When a young Algerian named Meursault kills a man, his subsequent imprisonment and trial are puzzling and absurd. The apparently amoral Meursault, who puts little stock in ideas like love and God, seems to be on trial less for his murderous actions, and more for what the authorities believe is his deficient character.
This remarkable translation by Matthew Ward has been considered the definitive English version since its original publication. It unlocks the prose as no other English version has, allowing the listener to soak up the richness of Camus’ ideas.
