This book poses a lot of questions, creates some memorable and meaningful characters, produces some gut-wrenching moments, and is clearly the work of a genius. Camus's compassion, view of humanity, and facility with "objective" portrayals that still manage to be full of feeling are all astounding. Negatives: some of the discussion of the grief of the separated (people cut off from loved ones abroad when the town was isolated) didn't quite ring true for me. So much attention was given to that theme that it seemed Camus used plague then as a device to talk about the separation of lovers, which I didn't find nearly as powerful as when he used it to talk about coping with untimely death. I wondered about the translation - some words seemed like they must have been the least bad fit. If anyone has read this in both French and English I'd be interested in hearing an opinion.
This was an interesting and intriguing book! This book profiles and horoscopes 50 notorious criminals. The book is divided into the horoscope signs. In each of those signs the author gives a two page run down on the criminals crime and then using their birth sign, birthdate, time of birth etc., correlates how the person's horoscope in total relates or possibly foretold the crimes they comitted. If you're a true crime fan like me you'll LOVE this book!!
