I just read "The Stranger" by Camus and had "Nausea" on my bookshelf for quite a while, I thought It was the perfect read to follow "The Stranger"... Im curious to see if other people here have read it (Nausea) and what your opinions on the book are.
Thanks.

I'm still reading Nausea because I bought the physical copy a few days back, but I also adore Camus books (he's my favorite author).

As far as I've read, I love the way Antoine Roquentin describes physical sensations (it's unique for me because many writers focus more on the emotional aspect more). If it's not too much trouble, I'd like to hear your thoughts about this book after you finish it.

I read both books in my 20's. I didn't understand them. Not really. I wanted to. I thought I did. But life had not beaten the living daylight out of me yet, so I couldn't even begin to comprehend what they were saying.

Fast forward 20 something years later and these books might very well be called "Callie Arcale - a life; Volume I and II".

Depressing really. Bordering on obscene. Why couldn't my life have been a Jane Austen novel? "Careful there, vicar!"

I've read it years ago when I was in highschool. The title is fitting. It left me feeling nauseated
