Feb 12, 2013 Richard Jones rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Stephen Eric Bonner has written a very clear and concise introduction to the thought and motivations of Albert Camus, which derives much of its appeal from the fact that Bonner has contextualised his overview in line with the historical and sociopolitial events that helped shape and cement Camus's place as one of the leading exponents of Frnech existential writing.
Abdullah Başaran
It is clearly seen that the book was written very academically. However, it should be written more literary. Actually, I wanted to find interesting clues, hints about Camus' life, not academic investigations on books of Camus. Therefore, the book does not deserve more than 3.
