For Rebellion & Conformity, or whatever it is we’re studying right now, we’re reading The Stranger. We’re maybe two chapters from the end, and I am not moved.

Meursault is the most apathetic character I have ever read about. This makes him boring. He doesn’t care what happens to him; even through his arrest and trial he didn’t care. Of course, now that his life is in IMMINENT danger of ending, he’s starting to miss the old stuff. Bastard.

Maybe it was better in French.
