Publisher's Summary

In the small coastal city of Oran, Algeria, rats begin rising up from the filth only to die as bloody heaps in the streets. Shortly after, an outbreak of the bubonic plague erupts and envelops the human population. Albert Camus' The Plague is a brilliant and haunting rendering of human perseverance and futility in the face of a relentless terror born of nature.

O So Fascinating. Meticulous Indeed.

In order not to spend a most deserved length of time in typing this review, I shall hope to keep it short but true.

I had previously read another of his titles "The Fall" and although that was quite the mentally stimulating but complex literary read, this... this was magnificent in the most purest ways.

Although a seemingly lengthy read, it flies by fairly quickly due to the magnificent pacing and the satisfying, fruitful plot.

More than enough tragedy, irony and reflections of the human character in such a situation (as we may or may not be depending on your reading this).

Another master piece by the author, Camus.

Do Not buy this performance of this fabulous book

i love this book. I r read it for the first time 35 years ago. The pandemic had me pining for it's wisdom. It was nearly ruined by a reader who insisted on swilling a gobful of spit at the end of each sentence. i would have abandoned the entire project but for the magnificence of the writing. I gave the performance one star ONLY because I couldn't give it nil. It was utter shit

Captivating performance of a compelling story

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting the vibrant cast of characters who inhabit Oran. The narrator's unusual voice suits the tone of the narrative perfectly.
