LibraryThing Review

User Review  - bodachliath - LibraryThing

In this unfinished novel, Camus gives a poignant and richly detailed semi-autographical account of a childhood in Algeria. The notes included here make it clear that this was intended as part of a much more ambitious work, but what remains is very readable and moving. Read full review

Review: The First Man

User Review  - Onyango Makagutu - Goodreads

Camus is a great writer and in this book he tells a great story, a story of love, of poverty of race and of daily struggles to make a living. He tells the story of children growing up and of fathers dead in wars and of mothers left without husbands. It is a great read. Read full review
