A haunting tale of human resilience in the face of unrelieved horror, Camus' novel about a bubonic plague ravaging the people of a North African coastal town is a classic of twentieth-century literature.

In reality death is all around us. In our western culture, we are shielded by this inevitability to our detriment and our colder society. The Plague stands in for a heightened and more intense reality, showing the heroic and the best compassion in man, and madness. The story is searingly beautiful with tenderness and sending the reader through anxiety and hope.
Please Update & Fix!
One of the greatest and most profound pieces of literature has been given the worst possible treatment. This edition is full of typos and other related editorial flaws. Please update and fix these issues; issues that detract from this incredible experience!
Bad file...needs to be fixed!!
As soon as the file is fixed I'll give 5 stars. There are many chapters where the third to last page is repeated three times, so you miss the last two pages of the chapter. At first I thought this was an isolated occurrence, but after the 10th time it was getting hard to follow some of the characters. Please fix this soon, because the book is a masterpiece!
